Anti-NSA Protesters Rally On "1984 Day"

Protesters hoped to send a message to Congress to end the NSA's mass surveillance programs.

Posted on August 4, 2013, at 4:45 p.m. ET

Activists in 20 cities protested Sunday against the National Security Administration's surveillance programs that track Americans' phone and email records.

Some of the protesters showed their support for Edward Snowden, who brought the NSA's programs to light through stories published in The Guardian and The Washington Post.

Protest organizers said they hoped the demonstrations would send a message to leaders in Congress "that to earn our trust they must restore the Fourth Amendment" and pass legislation ending the NSA's surveillance programs.
