The Secret Room

EFF Desinger Hugh D’Andrade was recently asked to create mural-sized political cartoon at a show of experimental drawings and cartoons at the Mission Cultural Center in San Francisco.

For his subject, he chose to depict the “secret room” at AT&T’s Folsom Street facility.  This is one of the places where the Bush Administrations illegal domestic spying program was carried out as all of the internet traffic (websites people visited, searches performed, emails sent or received… EVERYTHING!) passing through the facility was copied and sent to the NSA.

While I think it was great that this cartoon got shown at such a high visibility venue, I think it might have more impact if it were to be printed on t-shirts, car covers, billboards and perhaps the front of houses and businesses all over America.  Heck, It ought to be copied by skywriters on a regular basis as well as appear on the front page of every newspaper in the country.

Anyway… Give this a watch and think about it.
