PFAW: Tell Congress to Grow a Spine

Posted by libhom Friday, October 05, 2007

People for the American Way (PFAW) is asking people to contact sign a petition calling on Congress not to renew their temporary gutting of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

From their petition acknowledgment page:

Last August, the Senate and House caved under White House pressure and voted to OK the gutting of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). For 30 years, FISA has served as a check on the government’s surveillance activities for intelligence purposes.

I just signed a petition telling Congress to "get a spine", and stand up to the White House and fix FISA. We can’t accept anything less than a law that will protect Americans’ constitutional rights and provide oversight of government surveillance.

Will you join me in signing this petition?

Sign the Petition

The original FISA law has been criticized for insufficiently protecting civil liberties, but the Bush regime and the Democratic Congress have gone along with gutting the few protections in that law.

Learn more about FISA from the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
