If you've been following TweakTown over the past couple of weeks, you'll know about the Prism surveillance program that is being conducted by the NSA. Shortly after the revelations regarding the NSA and its spying programs, a petition popped up online. This petition, titled "Stop Watching Us," urges Congress to stop the NSA.

This dragnet surveillance violates the First and Fourth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution, which protect citizens' right to speak and associate anonymously, guard against unreasonable searches and seizures, and protect their right to privacy.

A similar petition is taking place on The White House's We the People. This petition has reached the 100,000 signature threshold that forces the White House to make a response. The petition asks the government to pardon Edward Snowden.

If you want to sign the petition, you can find it here.
