Over the past month, there has been a lot of backlash over the recent revelations of mass surveillance being carried out by the NSA against American citizens, foreign embassies and more. Quite a few people have decided to take action with a petition calling for full disclosure of the US's "spying" programmes as well as a real-world protest set to occur this Thursday.
Some of the web's biggest names have backed mass protests over internet surveillance carried out by the US National Security Agency (NSA).
The Restore the Fourth movement - referring to the US constitution's fourth amendment - said it wants to end "unconstitutional surveillance".
Reddit, Mozilla and Wordpress are among the big web names backing the action, due to take place on Thursday.
Almost 100 events have been planned across the US.
The site quotes a line from the fourth amendment which pledges "the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures".
As well as the "real-world" protests, many influential websites plan to display messages of protest on their homepages on Thursday, co-ordinated by a group called the Internet Defence League (IDL).
