Speak Now or Forever Be Listened To...

NOW is the time! Pick up your phones and make that call. If you don't your right to do so privately could forever be lost!!!

Big brother has never been so close to establishment in this country as it is today. We MUST take a stand and tell Congress and the Senate to go back to the drawing board on this. Make that call today, or truly and honestly YOUR calls will be listened to without discretion for the rest of our lives.

This will change America, our America in ways that really only mimic the worst of sci fi movies...

Make the call and STOP IT NOW!


From the Desk of Caroline Fredrickson
Director, ACLU Washington Legislative Office We are down to the wire. Can you call your senators right now?
Look up phone numbers and talking points here:
Dear Friend,
By Wednesday night, the debate over government eavesdropping will end in the Senate.
In less than three days, we will know who stood up for civil liberties and who failed freedom. Help put your senators on notice before they vote.
Make wake up calls to your senators right now:
Our demands are simple and unwavering. Stay true to your oath to protect the Constitution. Stand up against an overreaching executive branch. And, don't grant blanket immunity to huge corporations that sold out Americans' privacy.
Call your senators now and tell them to reject telecom immunity and warrantless spying on Americans:
Your actions have made a difference in this fight. Together, we have jammed congressional switchboards, flooded the Capitol in a sea of email and buried lawmakers in a mountain of petitions.
After all the twists and turns in this debate, we are finally down to the wire. Every lobbyist, lawyer and organizer at the ACLU is determined to win this fight, whether we have to do it in Congress or in the Courts. But right now it is absolutely essential that the voice of freedom be heard throughout the halls of Congress.
Please stand with the ACLU for this final push and help us get our message through.
All senators need to be reminded of their commitment to the Constitution and that you -- their constituent -- expect them to do the right thing.
Please call your senators right now:
Help us finish the work we started in December 2005, when the warrantless wiretapping program was first exposed by the New York Times. Together, we will bring the government's surveillance programs in line with the Constitution and the rule of law.
We will be in touch later this week about next steps in this fast-moving legislation.
Thank you for standing with us.
Caroline Fredrickson, Director
ACLU Washington Legislative Office
P.S. In the coming days, the Senate will have a series of votes on this legislation and will debate amendments to their eavesdropping bill. After that, the House and Senate will reconcile competing spying bills.
