SunsetThePatriotAct.Com Demands End To Mass Surveillance

As the House prepares for a vote on the USA Freedom Act this week, 13 netroots groups—representing approximately 10 million Americans—have launched a campaign and activism website calling on Congress to reject reauthorization of key provisions of the PATRIOT Act. Instead, the site calls for Congress to allow PATRIOT Act provisions—including Section 215, which has been exploited to justify the collection of data on millions of innocent Americans’ phone calls—to sunset on June 1st. Netroots groups plan to use the site to generate hundreds of thousands of emails and tens of thousands of phone calls to Congress over the next two weeks. Internet users may visit to make their voices heard.
