Tell the Senate: Stop the online spying bills.

Dear Friend,

We need to speak out to stop the Senate from greatly expanding the power of the federal government and big corporations to spy on us as we use the Internet.

The House has already passed "Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act" (CISPA), a horrible bill that shreds our online civil liberties.

Supporters of CISPA cynically used the legitimate need to protect our vital national interests from cyber attacks as an excuse to give the government and private companies the authority to read, watch and listen to everything we do on the Internet.

Now the fight moves to the Senate, where several CISPA-like bills are under consideration.

I just signed a petition telling the Senate to stop the online spying bills. I hope you do, too.

You can find out more information and sign the petition at the link below.
