Protect Internet Privacy: Stop CISA

This petition had 41,315 supporters

In 2012 and 2013, some members of Congress tried to pass the privacy killing bill CISPA. But Americans pushed back and defeated it. Now CISPA is back - only it's being called CISA - and it's even worse than before

Don't be fooled by the new name. The Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2014 (CISA) is a serious threat to your privacy and civil rights. If passed, it will give the National Security Agency increased access to our private data and allow the NSA to share that data with police and other law enforcement agencies under the guise of "cybersecurity." 

It creates a loophole in current privacy laws - allowing the government to ask companies and universities to hand over your private data without a warrant. Basically, it allows for your Fourth Amendment rights to be ignored and your private citizenship to be revoked.

The bill has already passed the Senate Intelligence Committee and could be voted on in the full Senate soon.  

Sign this petition to send a strong message to your members of Congress that you won't stand for attacks on our civil liberties. Stop CISA!
