CISPA, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, is back from the dead, and lawmakers in Washington are debating it as we speak.

CISPA, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, is back from the dead, and lawmakers in Washington are debating it as we speak.

CISPA would allow private companies and the government to easily share our data, with no accountability or liability. Due to serious privacy concerns, though, major internet companies like Facebook and Microsoft are declining to support CISPA this time around.

That's why we're targeting telecom giants AT&T and Verizon. If the major telcos withdraw, the controversial bill will loose the momentum it needs to pass through Congress.

Last year, 50,000 members of the Access community called on companies to drop their support of CISPA v1. With declining support from the private sector, knocking off AT&T and Verizon would be a huge blow to the bill and could get it shelved again.

Sign the petition to the right to demand AT&T and Verizon stand up for their users and drop their support of CISPA.

Signed and tweeted - though I don't expect much. They have us just where they want us. A friend of mine has closed down her cable TV and Internet. She is fed up, and who can blame her? Some days I wonder which is worse the 300 emails of SPAM or the 10 lbs of postal SPAM. Where does it come from? From those many petitions, from being on Facebook, tweeter, Care2 and other sites.

AT&T has always been greedy. I wouldn't think they'd change now.

These corporations can't exist, if we didn't give them our money.
Far too many Americans have no room to complain, when they do nothing to change the problem. Greed runs rampant with big business. They have no reason to stop, until we the consumers make changes.
