Corrupt Supreme Court to Hear NYCLU, ACLU Challenge to Warrantless Wiretapping Law

by Worldwide Hippies

Help Fix FISA

To WWH/CJE  - Four years ago, Congress passed the FISA Amendments Act – the domestic wiretapping bill that allows the National Security Agency to spy on your international phone calls and emails.

Hours after President George W. Bush signed the bill into law, the ACLU and the NYCLU filed a federal lawsuit challenging it. We argue that the warrantless spying law violates your constitutional rights to free speech and privacy.

On Monday, the lawsuit, Amnesty v. Clapper, will be argued before the U.S. Supreme Court. The suit was brought by New York-based journalists, human rights advocates and lawyers who are professionally or ethically required to protect the confidential communications they have with clients, colleagues or sources.

The spying law forces them to take costly and burdensome steps, such as relying on face-to-face meetings, to avoid the risk that the government will intercept their international emails and phone calls.

The NSA should never be allowed to inspect your private emails or eavesdrop on your phone calls to friends or coworkers overseas without a warrant. We're excited for this chance to defend your privacy and free-speech rights before the nation's highest court.

You can help us stop warrantless domestic spying. The FISA Amendments Act is set to sunset at the end of the year. Urge your legislators in Congress to protect your privacy by reforming this unconstitutional law.

Thank you for all that you do,

The staff of the NYCLU
