Sites to register concern regarding NSA Spying on Americans


To register you concern (if you are concerned) regarding massive NSA surveillance of phone and Internet traffic of all American citizens, I suggest signing one or both of these petitions to congress. This one had over 500,000 signatures the last time I looked.

This is what they are trying to achieve:

We are calling on Congress to take immediate action to halt this surveillance and provide a full public accounting of the NSA's and the FBI's data collection programs. We call on Congress to immediately and publicly:
  1. Enact reform this Congress to Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act, the state secrets privilege, and the FISA Amendments Act to make clear that blanket surveillance of the Internet activity and phone records of any person residing in the U.S. is prohibited by law and that violations can be reviewed in adversarial proceedings before a public court;
  2. Create a special committee to investigate, report, and reveal to the public the extent of this domestic spying. This committee should create specific recommendations for legal and regulatory reform to end unconstitutional surveillance;
  3. Hold accountable those public officials who are found to be responsible for this unconstitutional surveillance.

A more moderate approach

The second petition simply asks that NSA surveillance cease until rules are made public and the issues are discussed and parameters specified.

We hereby petition the National Security Agency, a component of the Department of Defense, for relief. We ask the NSA to immediately suspend collection of solely domestic communications pending the completion of a public rulemaking as required by law.
