Here's our petition to Congress:
The Patriot Act has undermined civil liberties and personal privacy since its inception. The mass surveillance authorized under the Patriot Act has never been shown to be useful in preventing terrorist attacks. Instead the Patriot Act has enabled a national surveillance dragnet of all U.S. persons, and under the Trump administration can be weaponized in this intensely political moment to spy on Black Lives Matter civil rights protesters, as well as collecting internet search and browsing history without needing a warrant. We demand you take every measure possible to NOT reauthorize the Patriot Act.
After signing the petition, please use the tools on the next webpage to share it with your friends. There's no need to share it with the U.S. government, which has access without your consent.
This work is only possible with your financial support. Please chip in $3 now.
