The Supreme Court let us down: They refused to hear Wikimedia v. NSA, the ACLU's lawsuit challenging the NSA's mass surveillance of Americans' online communications with anyone abroad. By declining to hear this case, the Court has slammed shut one of the only doors left to hold the government accountable for surveillance abuses first revealed in 2013 by Edward Snowden.
But we are not powerless. Congress can still fight back against these egregious violations of our privacy. Instead of reauthorizing Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, the very law used to justify this unconstitutional spying, they can let it expire. This is our chance to begin to end this dystopian chapter of American history.
We must act now. Send a message to your representatives in Congress urging them to vote "No" on reauthorizing Section 702.
