BREAKING, February 8th: It’s working! The House vote to extend the PATRIOT Act just failed. But they’re not going to give up — now, more than ever, we need people to keep the pressure on. Sign the petition and tell your friends to sign as well!
UPDATE, February 7th: The House is trying to ram through a sneaky renewal of the PATRIOT Act this week! They’re doing it without debate, and without including any meaningful reforms. Please sign the petition below, and use this page to call your lawmaker to urge him or her to vote no.
ORIGINAL: The PATRIOT Act is set to expire in just FOUR WEEKS, but Congress is trying to rush through a last minute extension!
Since it was passed almost a decade ago, some of the most noxious portions of the PATRIOT Act have burrowed their way deep into our legal system. A year ago, President Obama signed a bill extending three provisions of the original PATRIOT Act; last week Congressman Mike Rogers (R-Michigan) introduced legislation to extend them again.
Together, these provisions make a mockery of our civil liberties: They let government officials spy on whomever they want, for any reason, without ever letting them know or giving them a chance to challenge the order in court.
Enough is enough: Will you join us in demanding that Congress finally let these provisions expire? Just add your name at right, and we’ll automatically send a message to your senator, representative, and President Obama:
TO MY ELECTED OFFICIALS: After nearly ten years, it’s time to let the PATRIOT Act expire once and for all. I urge you to oppose its re-authorization.
Add your name and we’ll deliver your message to Washington.
