Hi Christian and SF Linux/WFTL LUG folks,
Thankfully, this request is all worked out. I've gotten the 12 nominee
bios taken care of for tonight. But wow--thanks for your willingness to
lend a hand and ears to your communities!! :)
We can still use your creative help. We want you to *show* Congress
what this country thinks about warrantless spying on its citizens.
Please shoot a quick video or picture of yourself or your family with a
sign that says that you oppose telecom immunity and expect our elected
representatives to follow the rule of law. Send your video/photo back
to us at: <photo at stopthespying.org>.
For details on making photos and videos to drive the point home: no
immunity for lawbreaking telecoms!
Check out what other folks have submitted to us here:
