Take action: There's an important vote in the Senate on Thursday that will decide if the government has the right to read your emails without getting a warrant first.

There's a key vote THIS THURSDAY: If you don't want the government to be able to read your emails without a warrant, please add your name at right.  And please get your friends involved:

The current dynamic is all over the place -- sometimes the government can read your emails without warrants, sometimes it can't (details on that at bottom). 

On Thursday the Senate Judiciary Committee will be taking up amendments to the Video Privacy Protection Act that could vastly improve the situation. But some members of the committee are doing law enforcement's bidding and might try to give the spooks even easier access to our emails.

It's a good moment for us to speak up, as the General Petraeus email scandal has revealed the astonishing degree of access the government has to our emails and personal information.

Plainly put: The FBI gained warrantless access to a series of email accounts, and took down one of the figures most respected by the political establishment and the mainstream media.  They can absolutely do the same thing to any last one of us.

Join us as we urge the Senate to protect us from undue government access to our emails: Tell them to come back with a warrant.

Just add your name at right to email the Senate before this week's vote.
