Before Congress left for the Independence Day recess, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 6304, the FISA Amendments Act of 2008, a bill that would seriously threaten the civil liberties of all Americans.  The Senate is poised to act on this same bill when it returns from recess on July 8. 
We need you to encourage your Senators to keep protecting civil liberties by opposing legislation that would authorize warrantless wiretapping of American citizens without judicial protections and would grant immunity to telecommunications companies for possible illegal eavesdropping!
Take action today to ask your Senators to protect civil liberties!  Simply enter your zip code in the box above!

Tell your Senators to oppose H.R. 6304 and limit the ability of government agencies to obtain information about Americans without the appropriate judicial constraints.  While the intelligence community needs the authority to track terrorists abroad, this can and should be done without threatening our civil liberties.

TAKE ACTION

1. Contact your Senator now, by phone or by email, and tell them to stand up for civil liberties and vote against H.R. 6304. Tell them that warrantless wiretapping of Americans is unacceptable in a democracy.  Remind your Senators that retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies is wrong.  To contact your Senator by email simply enter your zip code in the box above.

2. Send this alert to other concerned citizens – your grassroots network, your friends and coworkers.  Encourage them to contact their Senators today!
