Washington: The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America’s largest Islamic civil liberties group, will join thousands of civil rights activists participating in the ‘Stop watching us’ rally against mass surveillance at the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. Taking place on the 12th anniversary of the USA PATRIOT Act, the rally demands that American Congress provide transparency, accountability and reform of the NSA’s mass domestic surveillance that collects and stores the phone records and Internet activity of people in the United States. Participants in the October 26, rally, will call on the Congress to investigate the NSA’s mass surveillance programs, ban blanket surveillance of telephone and Internet activity and pursue accountability for any officials who mislead lawmakers and the American people.
