House Passes CISPA: Make Sure It Dies In The Senate

We pushed them to the brink, but House Republicans rammed through
CISPA this afternoon, ahead of schedule. Let's make sure it dies in
the Senate: Please add your name at right.

CISPA would give the government and corporations vast new powers to
track and share data about Americans' Internet use.

But our hundreds of thousands of emails and tens of thousands of phone
calls have had a real impact:

Amendments were adopted that made CISPA (marginally) better.
Earlier this month CISPA was supposed to sail through, but we helped
foment opposition, and the vote was far closer than anybody could have
imagined even a couple of weeks ago.
Most Democrats held firm in opposition, and more than two dozen
libertarian-leaning Republicans defied their leadership and voted no.
Most importantly, President Obama has threatened to veto CISPA.
The Senate will consider cyber security legislation in the coming
weeks. Let's turn up the heat right away: Tell the Senate to reject
CISPA and any and all legislation that doesn't respect privacy and
civil liberties.

Add your name at right to tell the Senate to reject cyber security
legislation that doesn't respect privacy.
