“Everybody is at risk for getting caught up in the NSA dragnet,” Stone says in the 3 minute, 26 second spot, which also features Daniel Ellsberg, Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) and Phil Donahue. The spot was directed by Brian Knappenberger and produced by the Electronic Frontier Foundation. The video is an effort to garner support for an Oct. 26 rally in Washington called Stop Watching Us, organized by more than 100 public interest groups that are demanding that Congress investigate the NSA spying programs.

The video is one of the first major pushes against the program using celebrity figures since news of Edward Snowden’s leaks of information about the program was first published.
