Bloggers and Civil Libertarians Petition Congress

When it comes to putting the pressure on the Senate to stand against retroactive immunity for telecom lawbreakers, bloggers have taken a vital lead. They helped inspire Chris Dodd to pledge a hold on any Senate bill that contains an amnesty, and prompted Barack Obama's recent unequivocal opposition to immunity.

These key bloggers have joined together to send a letter to Harry Reid, urging him to honor Sen. Dodd's hold and stop the immunity legislation currently moving through the Senate. The full letter is at www.noretroactiveimmunity.com. You can add you own name to the letter there (and join EFF, the ACLU, Working Assets and many prominent figures in the Democratic netroots.) And don't forget to visit Stop The Spying to call your representatives and urge them to use their vote to oppose telecom immunity in Congress.
