Call President Obama: End Government Mass Surveillance
Last Tuesday, the Senate overwhelmingly passed the USA Freedom Act – a bill that limited mass surveillance under Section 215 of the Patriot Act and other authorities. While USA Freedom Act is a start, no one should mistake it for comprehensive reform – it leaves many of the government’s most intrusive suveillance powers untouched, and it leaves disclosure and transparency loopholes.
Tell the President:
Please rein in Executive Order 12333. It’s been used to collect info about millions of innocent people without any judicial oversight. It’s time to bring the government’s surveillance practices back in line with democratic values.
