The online #spying bill is back - #cispa #stopcispa #cispablackout

The Bill of Rights shouldn???t stop protecting our civil liberties when we go
online. But the House just passed -- for the second session in a row -- the
"Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act" (CISPA), which strips
Americans of their constitutional rights when it comes to communications that
we exchange over the Internet.

CISPA is a dangerous ???cybersecurity??? bill that would give corporations more
power to obtain so-called ???threat??? information (such as from private
communications of users) and to disclose that data to the U.S. government
without a warrant. That means corporations could simply send your online
communications and other data directly to the National Security Agency (NSA)
without court order.

Tell your senators: Say no to online spying bill CISPA. The Bill of Rights
still apply online. Click the link below to sign the petition.
