CISPA passes House --- NO! Take Action!  

Here we go again.

Last week, a majority of representatives in the House voted in favor of CISPA, and therefore in favor of allowing companies to share your personal data with other firms, the US government, and the NSA--all without a warrant and with legal impunity.

But now the fight moves to the Senate, where we have some of our staunchest allies and where we won this fight last year.

Click here to urge your Senators to oppose any cyber security legislation that doesn't protect our right to privacy.

The Obama administration once again heard our voices and threatened to veto CISPA if the legislation did not more"carefully safeguard privacy and civil liberties."

But the fight is far from over. CISPA's corporate backers--IBM, Intel, Verizon, and AT&T--are spending millions lobbying in support of the bill precisely because it empowers them to share your private data with government agencies and the military while safeguarding themselves from legal action.

The big corporations are going to keep pushing for CISPA at the expense of their users' privacy and liberties. Tell your Senators to oppose anti-privacy cyber-security legislation now.

Indeed, IBM's VP of government affairs admitted last week that his company intended to use CISPA to "work directly and share information directly" with the National Security Agency.

Now, as before, we cannot sacrifice our hard-won liberties and privacy rights in the pursuit of a misguided and overbroad conception of "cyber-security."

Click here to tell your Senators to oppose CISPA and any other "cyber-security" legislation that doesn't safeguard our privacy rights.

Please urge your friends to take action Repost, Tweet & Facebook.  Make as much noise as you possibly can we did it before with SOPA we can do it again with CISPA!
