Tell Congress: Oppose cybersecurity legislation that violates Americans' rights

    1. Sponsored by

      American Civil Liberties Union

The House of Representatives is preparing to vote on legislation that would give the government, including military spy agencies like the National Security Agency, unprecedented powers to snoop through people's personal information — medical records, private emails, financial information — all without a warrant, proper oversight or limits.

The Cybersecurity Information Sharing and Protection Act (H.R. 3523), promoted as a measure to counter cyber attacks, would allow the NSA to collect the internet records of people who are not suspected of doing anything wrong. This unprecedented and broadly worded bill clears the way for internet providers, wireless carriers, and websites to share your personal information with military spy agencies.

Tell your Representative today to reject legislation that will make it easier for internet companies to share your personal information with military spy agencies.

      CISPA flagrantly violates the Fourth Amendment. The founding fathers must be spinning in their graves!

      Such legislation would violate the concept of the Fourth Amendment. Though that dealt with physical cases of searching homes, this is still in violation of peoples' rights and of the Constitution.

      In addition, this would weaken security all over, potentially allowing criminals to hack into people's information with more ease.
