Eastern Iowans hold anti-NSA rally

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Some people in Iowa City rallied against the National Security Agency Sunday. It was the 2nd anti-NSA rally in Iowa City. The other was held on July 4. Both were a part of a national movement called Restore the Fourth.

Rally organizers say they want to see the 4th Amendment protected, which protects people against unreasonable searches and seizures.

"We think that the spreading of ideas is really powerful and we've already seen a huge shift in public opinion about the NSA," said Jonathan Trueblood, co-organizer. "That's translated into a huge shift in public opinion on Washington."

Organizers also say they wanted to show support for Edward Snowden, the man who leaked classified documents on U.S. government surveillance programs.
