In the video, Lilly explains how the National Security Agency surveillance programs really work and encourage people to speak out at the upcoming StopWatchingUs rally in Washington, D.C on Oct. 26.

“I want to live in a world where people are free to express themselves without the fear that the government is constantly monitoring them,” said actress Evangeline Lilly, who is a longtime supporter of Internet freedom and privacy. “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.”

Evangeline Lilly’s voice-over in the video explains that spying is not just a privacy issue, it’s a free speech issue. “This open ended surveillance system is illegal and operates in total secrecy…” says Lilly in the video. “Spying on our internet usage gives the government power over our lives. What happens to free speech, free association, or a free press when everyone is under constant surveillance, even in our most private moments?”

A crowd of nearly 300 people gathered in Washington Square Park at 9:00pm Tuesday night when Internet freedom groups Fight for the Future and Demand Progress unveiled their about NSA surveillance by projecting it onto the side of a building in bustling Manhattan. The video lit up the side of a large building as hundreds of supporters and interested bystanders packed the sidewalk and spilled out into the street at a busy intersection adjacent to Washington Square Park.
