Today’s Downsizer Dispatch . . .

Subject: One last push on FISA

We’re at the deadline. Congress leaves town tomorrow, and as usual they like to pass lots of bill really quickly right before they go. Let’s make sure they don’t rush though a law giving the President warrantless spying powers, and/or immunity for the telecoms that participated in past warrantless spying.

Thank you to all the DC Downsizers who sent messages on this issue this week. If you haven’t sent a message yet, please do so now, here.

If you’ve already sent a message, please use our “I am not afraid” campaign to send another one. This campaign is our effort to convince Congress to make their response to terrorism proportional to the threat. You can use your personal comments to also tell them that you oppose warrantless spying and immunity for the telecoms. You can send that message here.

Finally, we still need calls to the Blue Dog Democrats telling them to NOT sign the discharge petition that would bring the bad Senate FISA bill to an immediate vote in the House. If your rep is on this list, please call them . . .
