Big news. President Obama is threatening to veto CISPA, the bill that could give the government and big companies limitless powers to spy on us online.
This is a huge moment in our campaign to beat back this assault on our online civil liberties. Millions have already told Congress it must not pass this bill.
Let’s pile on and stop this thing. Tell Congress to say “NO” to the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act.
This week, members of Congress proposed five amendments they said would allay our concerns. But even with these changes, CISPA would still give the NSA — the domestic spying agency —even more power to snoop on our texts, our emails, our web history and everything else we do online.
The White House agrees that this is a problem. That’s why it made the move to publicly oppose CISPA.
