The Online Movement Against Warrantless Spying, 2008 and Now
In the 6-day period between July 2 and July 7 2008, as the Senate prepared to pass a regime of warrantless surveillance under the auspices of the FISA Amendments Act, ten thousand Americans added their names to a declaration opposing the legislation and calling upon presidential candidate Barack Obama to vote NO.
In the 6 day period between November 23 and November 28 2009, as the House and Senate prepare to reauthorize warrantless surveillance in the United States (with the support of Barack Obama), 351 Americans added their names to an open letter opposing the reauthorization of warrantless surveillance and calling on President Barack Obama to roll it back.
Is your name on the open letter? What has changed?
