20 Organizations and Counting vs. the NSA

It was just announced that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has joined the Electronic Frontier Foundation and 18 other organizations in a lawsuit against the National Security Agency (NSA) for violating the First Amendment rights of millions of Americans.

See: http://www.cair.com/press-center/press-releases/12011-cair-joining-lawsuit-over-nsa-phone-spying.html.

The lawsuit specifically questions an order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ordering Verizon Wireless to surrender to the NSA, on a daily basis, information on all telephone calls within its system.    This indiscriminate collection of personal information under the auspices of the NSA and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act is one of the most serious governmental breaches of privacy that the United States has ever encountered.

ABOLISH THE DEATH PENALTY

“The death penalty is a lie, a misguided mistake born of anger and frustration. Capital punishment has become a perverse monument to inequality, to how some lives matter and others do not. It is a violent example of how we protect and value the rich and abandon and devalue the poor. The death penalty is a grim, disturbing shadow formed by the legacy of racial apartheid and bias against the poor that condemns the disfavored among us, but corrupts us all. It’s the perverse symbol elected officials use to strengthen their ‘tough on crime’ reputations and distract us from confronting the causes of violence. It is finally the enemy of grace, redemption and all of us who recognize that each person is more than their worse act.”
