Due to last minute issues, we have to cancel tonight’s meeting. We apologize for the short notice and are planning to meet next month on March 11th. We’ll send out more details as the date gets closer.
In the meantime, here’s an action for the Day We Fight Back Against Mass Surveillance:
Tomorrow, February 11, is the Day We Fight Back Against Mass Surveillance:
Amnesty has joined this important global day of action urging Congress to support the USA Freedom Act: a bipartisan bill introduced by Rep Sensenbrenner (R-WI) and Senator Leahy (D-VT) that would help end the bulk collection of information about our telephone calls and require greater transparency from the Obama administration about its use of surveillance.
