Today, TechFreedom joined a coalition of privacy advocates to launch Fight215.org, which lets Americans urge their representatives in Congress to end the NSA’s unconstitutional mass surveillance based on Section 215 of the Patriot Act.
“Mass surveillance of innocent Americans must end. President Obama has the power to end bulk collection of our records at any time, but has — thus far — chosen not to, said Berin Szoka, President of TechFreedom. “Where the White House has failed to protect our Constitutional rights, Congress must step into the void. We cannot afford to rubber-stamp the Patriot Act — yet again — without significant reforms. Of course the NSA plays a valuable role in protecting Americans, but it must — and can — do that consistent with the Fourth Amendment, which bars indiscriminate surveillance of innocent Americans with no connection to national security threats.”
