Coalition Demands End NSA Spying

The EFF announces that 86 civil liberties organizations and Internet companies, including the Electronic Frontier Foundation, reddit, Mozilla, FreedomWorks, and the American Civil Liberties Union, are demanding swift action from Congress in light of the recent revelations about unchecked domestic surveillance.

Now the backlash begins against the government sanctioned spying on all of us. The Electronic Frontier Foundation announces that a bipartisan coalition of 86 civil liberties organizations and Internet companies  including the Electronic Frontier Foundation, reddit, Mozilla, FreedomWorks, and the American Civil Liberties Union has formed. The coalition is demanding swift action from Congress in light of the recent revelations about unchecked domestic surveillance.

In an open letter to lawmakers sent today, the groups call for a congressional investigatory committee, similar to the Church Committee of the 1970s. The letter also demands legal reforms to rein in domestic spying and demands that public officials responsible for this illegal surveillance are held accountable for their actions.

The group also launched a global petition site at StopWatching.us.

We definitely need to get a clear picture what is really going on here.
