Support the Freedom to Read
    #1737969 - 07/22/03 01:04 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

From: Matt Howes, National Internet Organizer, ACLU
To: ACLU Action Network Members
Date: July 22, 2003

1) Support the Freedom to Read

Under the USA PATRIOT Act, FBI gained the power to search your library
and book-buying records without probable cause of any crime or intent
to commit a crime. It also stops librarians and booksellers from telling
you that this search has even occurred.

The FBI has been aggressively using these new powers without providing
Congress with explanations about its activities. A University of
Illinois survey shows libraries were targeted at least 175 times in the year
after 9/11 -- yet the FBI refuses to explain how or why.

In response to these invasions of our civil liberties, a bipartisan
group of Representatives have introduced an amendment to an appropriations
bill that would restore many key checks and balances. This amendment
will be voted on in the coming days and deserves our strong support.

2) Stop the Government Super-Snoop Plan

In a surprise development, the Senate has adopted legislation that
would completely block funding for the Pentagon's infamous Terrorism
Information Awareness program (formerly known as Total Information Awareness
or TIA).

The Senate's ban was adopted as part of the 2004 defense spending bill.
To become law and end the program that would indiscriminately track the
daily activities of Americans, the ban must survive a joint
House-Senate conference committee.

Opposition to the program has been unusually strong from across the
political spectrum. Groups as disparate as the American Conservative
Union and the ACLU have advocated against the development of this
super-snoop system that would inevitably identify thousands of innocent people
as potential terrorists. Yet the Bush Administration is threatening a
veto of the defense bill if TIA is defunded.

of Congress urging them to support a complete ban on TIA:
