Tell your Senators: CISPA still doesn’t protect our privacy

Here we go again.

Last week, a majority of representatives in the House voted in favor of CISPA, and therefore in favor of allowing companies to share your personal data with other firms, the US government, and the NSA–all without a warrant and with legal impunity.

On the bright side, the Obama administration once again heard our voices and threatened to veto CISPA if the legislation did not more “carefully safeguard privacy and civil liberties.” 

Now the fight moves to the Senate, where where we won this fight last year and have some of our staunchest allies. Please sign at right to tell your Senators to oppose any cyber-security legislation that doesn’t protect our privacy and civil liberties, and then click these links to get your friends to do the same:

CISPA’s corporate backers–IBM, Intel, Verizon, and AT&T–are spending millions lobbying in support of the bill precisely because it empowers them to share your private data with government agencies and the military while safeguarding themselves from legal action.

Indeed, IBM’s VP of government affairs admitted last week that his company intended to use CISPA to “work directly and share information directly” with the National Security Agency. 

The big corporations are going to keep pushing for CISPA at the expense of their users’ privacy and liberties. Sign to tell your Senators to oppose anti-privacy cyber-security legislation now. 

Now, as before, we cannot sacrifice our hard-won liberties and privacy rights in the pursuit of a misguided and overbroad conception of “cyber-security.”
