A key provision of the Patriot Act is set to expire in a matter of weeks. That means that if Congress does nothing, which they are apparently very good at, the unconstitutional surveillance of everyone’s phone records will end.
Sounds great... But some NSA apologists want to see this program extended. That’s why we all need to tell Congress not to reauthorize Section 215 of the Patriot Act.
The NSA surveillance program collects hundreds of millions of phone records daily. One federal judge criticized the program as “beyond Orwellian” and “likely unconstitutional.” And even the government-appointed Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board has said this program doesn’t make us any safer, stating that they couldn’t find a single example of a threat to the United States where this program made a concrete difference in the outcome of a counterterrorism investigation.
Dial 215-600-2215 to call Congress or visit fight215.org to speak out.
