Activists launch airship in protest at NSA surveillance

Protests against mass surveillance have now taken to the skies above a major National Security Agency installation.

At about 6am local time on Friday, in a field about a mile from Bluffdale, Utah, two activists from the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Greenpeace launched a 135ft airship and drifted the dirigible over the NSA’s massive data center there.

With some cars below entering the center’s office park, the lighter-than-air vessel hung a banner reading ‘NSA illegal spying below’ and a web address for a new EFF site grading members of Congress on their surveillance positions.
