Mike — We know we just wrote earlier today, but this is big news. President Obama is threatening to veto CISPA, the bill that could give the government and big companies limitless powers to spy on us online.
This is a huge moment in our campaign to beat back this assault on our online civil liberties. Millions have already told Congress it must not pass this bill.
Help us take advantage of this moment. Share our CISPA action with your friends on Facebook.
This week, members of Congress proposed five amendments they said would allay our concerns. But even with these changes, CISPA would still give the NSA — the domestic spying agency — even more power to snoop on our texts, our emails, our web history and everything else we do online.
The White House agrees that this is a problem. That's why it made the move to publicly oppose CISPA.
If we keep the pressure on, we might be able to stop this thing. Thanks for sharing this.
