Hoping to tap into the wave of anti-SOPA Internet activism that flooded Congress last year, Mozilla has joined with a variety of activist groups to found an anti-spying coalition called StopWatching.Us.

The just-launched website’s first order of business will be to gather signatures for a petition that demands Congress ”reveal the full extent of the NSA’s spying programs.”

“When users fear government surveillance… a free and open Web becomes untenable,” said Mozilla Privacy Chief Alex Fowler on a hastily arranged press call today. “We don’t want an Internet where everything we do is secretly tracked or logged by companies or governments.”

That means millions of Mozilla users who boot up their browsers in the coming days will become aware of the coalition. In a blog post announcing the move, the company says it “hasn’t received any such order [to share information] to date, but it could happen to us as we build new server-based services in the future.”
