A California-based group that has been battling the National Security Agency for years in lawsuits flew a giant blimp over the NSA Data Center in Utah early Friday.

Parker Higgen, of the San Francisco-based group Electronic Frontier Foundation, said that between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m., he — along with a pilot from Greenpeace — flew a blimp over the data center with a banner that stated: “NSA. Illegally spying below.”

The group, he said, was trying to raise awareness for its new website,

The foundation tweeted Friday, “We’re in an airship over the NSA’s data center in Utah with our friends @GreenpeaceUSA & @TenthAmendment, demanding an end to mass spying.”
