I thought this was worth sharing. Apparently, CISPA was passed, and now nearly every major Internet site is -now a government spy. I plan on taking part in the protest. I ask you to join me and many others as well.
This bill affects everyone — not just U.S. citizens. Anyone with a Facebook account could now have their data handed directly to the U.S. government. That’s why internet users overwhelmingly oppose this bill. Over 1.5 million people signed petitions against it. But Congress didn’t listen.
Does this remind you of something? Yep, this is the exact position we were in with SOPA last year. Then the Internet rose up and we made history with the SOPA strike.
This Spring, we’re going to organize the largest online privacy protest in history to make sure that CISPA goes the same route as SOPA and doesn’t become the law that breaks the 4th Amendment. Are you in?
CISPA threatens our most basic rights. Privacy is important not just for our security but for our rights to freedom of expression. The giant tech companies that stood with internet users against SOPA are not going to help us this time.
Can you share the flyer below on social media? And tell everyone you know to sign up to join the protest?
Thanks for everything. We’re getting the internet organized against this bill and we really appreciate all your help spreading the word.
For the internet,
