We are the ACLU, EFF, Demand Progress, Fight for the Future, Free Press, Restore the Fourth, and Tech Freedom. Ask us anything about surveillance, privacy, or the Amash Amendment being voted on by the House today, which would end the NSA's blanket...
Edit 7:05pm EDT: Unfortunately the amendment failed. The good news is that, thanks to your work, it was an unbelievably close 217-205. A month ago those defending these programs wouldn't have conceived they'd be getting this level of opposition on Capitol Hill. We need to capitalize on this and keep the fight going. Sign up for our newsletter at restorethefourth.net to get updates on future events, and join us on 1984 Day and continue our fight for the Bill of Rights.
Edit 2: The list of how each rep voted isn't available yet but should be tomorrow. We'll make sure it's publicized.
Edit 3: List is up: http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2013/roll412.xml
This vote is taking place in a few hours. We need you to call your reps ASAP. They've taken notice of the pressure you've put on already, and we need to keep adding it on. There's an easy-to-use tool that will help you find your rep's phone number and a script for when they answer at defundthensa.com.
