Stop the assault on the Constitution and restore your rightsTuesday, December 24, 2013 at 9:09 am by Adwoa Masozi
This year has transformed the debate on surveillance issues. But dragnet NSA domestic spying still continues, and other assaults on your constitutional rights show no signs of stopping.
We’re not done yet: NSA spying remains merely one piece of a far more vast civil liberties crisis including aerial surveillance drones, FBI infiltration of activists groups and faith institutions, regional fusion centers and local intelligence collection, routinized racial & ideological profiling, torture with impunity, and the executive secrecy that allows these abuses to recur.
Do you want to stop the assault on the Constitution, and restore your rights?
Our nation stands at a turning point in the effort to shut down unconstitutional domestic surveillance: a federal judge ruled against bulk data collection last week, as a presidential review panel issued recommendations for dramatic restrictions on NSA powers. Meanwhile, Congress continues to consider over two dozen measures to curtail the NSA dragnet.
None of this would have happened without the massive grassroots pressure you’ve helped to build.
This year, BORDC aims to raise $75,000 to expand our support of multiethnic, transpartisan grassroots dissent to other cities in the new year. And due to unique matching opportunities, every gift until December 31 will be matched not once, or even twice, but three times – more than tripling the impact of your contribution.
With your help, BORDC can help We the People bring down the surveillance state once and for all.
