Fight for the Future launches effort to call on Governors to Stop the Military from Testing Creepy Spy Balloons on Americans

The Guardian recently reported that the US Military is conducting mass surveillance tests across South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Missouri, and Illinois using high altitude balloons carrying hi-tech radar, capable of conducting “persistent surveillance” of enormous areas. Today, Fight for the Future launched a new campaign to mobilize people to contact the Governors of these states and demand they stop the military from conducting unethical surveillance tests on their residents.

Throughout the test period, the military has been watching, recording, and storing the whereabouts of millions of people across the Midwest. “Even in tests, they’re still collecting a lot of data on Americans: who’s driving to the union house, the church, the mosque, the Alzheimer’s clinic,” Jay Stanley, a senior policy analyst at the American Civil Liberties Union, told the Guardian. The military and the private companies designing the spy balloons determine what happens to the data collected, how it’s used, and how it’s stored without any oversight or accountability from elected officials in the states where the tests are being conducted.
