According to the Electronic Frontier Foundation:

“A coalition of grassroots groups from across the political spectrum joined forces to fly an airship over the NSA’s data center in Bluffdale, Utah on Friday, June 27, 2014, to protest the government’s illegal mass surveillance program.  The environmental group Greenpeace flew its 135′ long thermal airship over the data center carrying the message ‘NSA Illegal Spying Below’.”
