URGENT: Congress Rushing NSA Spying Bills This Week -- Call your Senator Now!

For the last two months, your phone calls and letters have helped hold back the dangerous NSA spying bills in Congress. But in the last week before the pre-election recess, the White House and several Congressional leaders are trying to sneak these bills through and effect the single greatest expansion of government surveillance ever. Take action now to stop the illegal surveillance, before it's too late.

Although the press has been aggressively reporting on (and criticizing) these bills, torture and military tribunals have recently taken center stage. Working with the White House, Congressional leaders are trying to take advantage of that fact. By attaching a spying bill to the military tribunals bill, they are trying to minimize debate and force a vote on this unprecedented hand-over of surveillance power.

We still have a very good chance of stopping the Administration's wiretapping plan in the Senate, but we need your help to do so. Visit our action center now to contact your Senators -- it's now or never.
