How to participate in opt out campaign
TSA pat-down guidelines
The TSA web site list several reasons for performing a pat-down of a passenger, including cases where passengers opt out of using the full body scanners. Among the rights passengers have during a pat down is to request that it be performed in a private area, and to have the pat-down witnessed by a person chosen by the passenger.
TSA photography gGuidelines
According to a statement on the TSA web site, TSA does not prohibit the public, passengers or press from photographing, videotaping or filming at security checkpoints, as long as the screening process is not interfered with or slowed down. While TSA requests that monitors not be filmed or photograph, such activity does not appear to be explicitly prohibited. TSA also mention that local or state laws may restrict photography, and such activity may invite questions from local police or the TSA.
