Tell the Senate: Stop CISPA

The Senate is the next battleground over the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act(CISPA), which gives the intelligence community and private businesses free rein to delve into any citizen's everyday internet activity. The bill is expected to come up in the next few weeks.

CISPA allows companies and the government to bypass existing laws in order to monitor our communications, filter content, or potentially even shut down access to online services for undefined “cybersecurity" purposes. But what it doesn't do is provide any new protections for critical infrastructure systems, like electrical grids and water supplies. Some security that is!

CISPA has passed the House, it's up to the Senate to stop this bill from becoming law. Tell your Senators to oppose the House bill and any other bill that would gut existing privacy laws.
