NSA has "Secret Room" at SF AT&T Facility

An AT&T whistleblower has revealed that the National Security Agency installed “secret rooms” at AT&T facilities in various cities, including the facility on Folsom Street in San Francisco. Former AT&T technician Mark Klein is the star witness in a lawsuit against the telecommunications giant brought by the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Statements by Klein reveal that AT&T has installed servers, routers and internet traffic-analysis software in the secret room. "I am presenting this information to facilitate the dismantling of this dangerous Orwellian project," Klein wrote in a statement.

# National Day of Out(r)age Against the Telcos!
A "National Day of Out(r)age Against the Telcos" will be held on Wednesday, May 24th. In SF, there will be a 12pm street theater protest outside of AT&T Park, to say that people won't play ball with telephone companies that do business with the NSA. There will also be a rally outside of AT&T headquarters, (600 Folsom St., between 2nd and 3rd St) from 4 to 6 pm. The AT&T building is where the NSA set up a secret room to collect phone calls. People are also outraged at efforts by telephone companies, or Telcos, to pass National Video Franchising legislation in Congress, which would negatively impact thousands of local cable access channels.

Join Media Alliance, Access-SF Center, CODEPINK and others for a lively rally outside of the AT&T building where the National Security Agency (NSA) set up a secret spy room to collect phone calls.

Recent news also has exposed the privacy violation of millions of telephone users by AT&T and Verizon who willingly handed over call records to the National Security Agency without proper legal warrants. AT&T has also been in the news about it's collusion with the NSA to install computers to track the internet traffic on their Worldnet backbone. Now these same corporation want even more access to homes throughout the country with their fiber networks. We demand accountability and
better protections!
