New NSA Video Explains How the NSA Surveillance Programs Really Work

It’s been more than 5 months since Eric Snowden leaked information about the NSA’s secretive surveillance programs. Yet, headlines about the NSA continue to dominate the news each day.

For those of you who haven’t grasped the extent of the NSA’s surveillance programs, you might want to check out a new video released by Fight for the Future and Demand Progress.

The video is 5 minutes long. It uses humor while weaving together scenes from popular films like The Big Lebowski, E.T., and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off to explain how the NSA’s spying program really works.

The video was narrated and executive produced by actress, activist, and author Evangeline Lilly.

Like most Hotspot Shield users, Evangeline Lilly is a longtime supporter of Internet freedom and privacy.

In explaining her reason for producing the video, Evaneline Lilly stated, “Mass government surveillance is a dangerous form of Internet censorship, and I hope this video will encourage everyone to hold governments and corporations accountable when they violate our rights.”
