‘Restore the Fourth’ rallies to be held nationwide on Indepenence Day

Restore the Fourth logo Independence Day RalliesConcerned about your Fourth Amendment Right to privacy and want to do something about it? Then joining a “Restore the Fourth” rally on Independence Day might be the perfect thing for you.

The rallies, which will be held nationwide, are being sponsored by supporters of the right to privacy who are upset with the government intruding on their everyday lives – particularly in light of the revelation that the NSA has seized the phone and Internet records of ordinary Americans in the name of national security.

Some of the cities in which rallies are being planned include Denver, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Washington, D.C. More information on the individual rallies and a list of the cities in which they are being planned can be found on the group’s website.

According to the group’s Facebook page, Restore the Fourth is ”a non partisan group of concerned citizens dedicated to restoring our fourth amendment rights.”

The group’s leaders chose to focus specifically on the Fourth Amendment because they believe the people who would fight to protect the Fourth Amendment are the same people who would fight to protect the other rights given to us in the Bill of Rights.

“Indeed, if we cannot be secure in our persons from unlawful search and seizures, then how can we enjoy any of our other rights?,” the group’s Facebook page reads.

Restore the Fourth wasn’t the first organization to plan a Bill of Rights-related rally on the mall this Independence day. Conservative talk radio host Adam Kokesh had originally planned his own gun-rights march on Washington for the 4th, but called it off late last month because of the march’s legality.
