Yesterday, the inaugural "1984 Day" demonstrations were held across the country in protest of the National Security Agency's once-secretive surveillance programs and its likely infringement of the Fourth Amendment. Named after George Orwell's classic dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, the rallies were organized by "Restore the Fourth," an ad-hoc group of digital privacy activists and Redditors behind last month's Fourth of July protests, and held across at least 20 U.S. cities, including in New York City with an estimated turnout of 400 protesters, according to the official press release.
