Greenpeace flew a 135-foot-long airship over NSA’s data center in Utah this week to protest the government’s illegal mass surveillance program. The airship also promoted a new website called StandAgainstSpying.org, which “grades members of Congress on what they have done, or often not done, to rein in the NSA.”
Greenpeace is legendary for getting the media’s attention, but it was political PR firm FitzGibbon Media that pulled this one off. They’re also working with Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action for Gun Safety which are also together celebrating a media coup this week: With the organizations’ prodding, Target publicly asked customers to not bring firearms into its stores, even where it's allowed by law.
