More on CISPA

From Demand Progress:

Internet-Wide Day Of Action: Support Privacy Amendments To Cyber-Security Bill

We're taking part in an Internet-wide day of action: Last week's vote was delayed, so now the Senate version of CISPA looks like it'll be voted on later THIS WEEK. Pro-privacy changes have been made to the bill, but they don't go far enough to protect us from undue surveillance by the government and corporations.

Specifically, Al Franken and Rand Paul are pushing an amendment to make sure companies can't spy on their users' private communications: Please add your name at right to support it.

Surveillance proponents are going to try to kill amendments like this one and eat into the pro-privacy changes that have already been made.

Congressional staffers say we can win these fights, but we need to up the volume of constituent contacts -- please help us bombard Congress with emails and calls this week.

Please add your name at right to help us protect privacy rights as this bill moves forward, and then use these links to share this campaign and the image at right:

Protecting my privacy is a big thing to me and if it is to you as well you may want sign this petition.

There is also this petition from Fight For The Future:

Perhaps it's a good idea to sign both of these petitions. Double you political weight double your political clout.
