On April 26, the Republican-controlled House
of Representatives passed CISPA - the Cybersecurity Information Sharing and
Protection Act - by a vote of 248-168.
This week, the Senate may vote on
CISPA-like bills (Lieberman-Collins S.2105 or McCain S.2151).

CISPA gives the government, including
military spy agencies like the National Security Agency (NSA), virtually
unlimited powers to capture our personal information — medical records, private
emails, financial information — all without a warrant or proper

Tell Your Senators: Stop CISPA
Civil liberties groups and progressives
unanimously opposed the bill, as did Ron Paul. President Obama warned the House
that he will veto the bill because it does not protect our privacy, but they
ignored his warnings.
Democrats control the Senate, so we should
be able to stop CISPA there. Tell your Senators to protect your privacy from Big Brother and
oppose CISPA.

Thanks for all you do!
