Action Alert: Urge Your Senators to Vote "No" on FISA Deal

The Senate is soon voting on H.R. 6304, the Hoyer/Bush FISA Deal that passed the House of Representatives yesterday. It is time to call your Senators and urge them to vote "NO." This so-called compromise grants retroactive telecom immunity and is a blow to our civil liberties.

According to People for the American Way:
By giving legal "immunity" to these companies, all lawsuits brought against them by civil liberties groups would be thrown out of court. That means Americans may never find out how far Bush went in breaking the law and violating our rights. Bush is trying to get immunity passed before there's a new President because once it's done, it can't be undone.
We need accountability, and this will not help.
