Call your Senator by Friday – tell him/her to end government surveillance

Every step of our journey counts! TIs are under surveillance so change the law and make it illegal.

This is an alert from the ACLU. (You can sign up to receive their email alerts to make it easy to stay up to date, sign petitions, etc.) The links below should work – I have activated them.

What seemed like a long shot a week ago suddenly seems within reach! We’ve been fighting the abusive surveillance of the Patriot Act for over a decade – and we finally have a chance of victory.

Last weekend, for the first time, a majority of Senators took a stand against a blanket renewal of provisions of the Patriot Act. But the fight against government spying is far from over.

The Senate is coming back for a special Sunday session just hours before the Patriot Act expires on June 1st.

Now is the moment to flood our representatives with urgent messages to rein in government surveillance. We have till 5pm Friday (tomorrow).

Can you spare 3 minutes and lend your voice?

Polls show that Americans are overwhelmingly concerned about NSA surveillance, and there are prominent members of Congress who agree and say it’s simply time to let Section 215 die.

This is our chance to let them know that we support them – and to let Senators who are on the fence know how strongly we feel about ending these harmful surveillance programs.

We only have roughly a day left to ramp up the pressure and make sure our public outcry is heard loud and clear. Will you join us?

Call your Senator and tell them to restore your privacy when they meet on Sunday.

We are so close to winning this, so thanks for standing together to stop this dangerous mass surveillance of all Americans. The stakes are high. The time is now.

Thanks for taking action,
Anthony for the ACLU Action team
