> Dear Friend of Freedom,
> In a move that I can only describe as cowardice, Congress
> just passed legislation meant to immunize telephone
> companies for their illegal, disloyal, and irresponsible
> behavior. EFF has been fighting against telecom immunity,
> and we need your help to bring the fight to the next level:
> Two and a half years ago, EFF sued AT&T on behalf of its
> customers, seeking to hold the telecom giant responsible
> for its craven complicity in the White House's illegal
> warrantless wiretapping program.
> Since then, the phone companies and their allies in
> Washington have spent tens of millions of dollars lobbying
> Congress to grant them retroactive immunity. They ran
> ridiculous fear-mongering attack ads against any politician
> who dared to oppose them. President Bush threatened to veto
> any bill that allowed EFF's lawsuit to continue.
> Yesterday, Congress completely capitulated to the
> President's threats and voted to let the telecoms off the
> hook. If the telecoms are not held accountable, the
> administration will remain unchecked in its warrantless
> wiretapping of innocent Americans. This must stop!
> We need your help to take the fight to the next level.
> We're going to challenge Congress's unconstitutional grant
> of immunity in our case against AT&T. We're going to fight
> for a congressional repeal of immunity in the next
> Congress. And we're going to file a new lawsuit against the
> government, challenging its warrantless surveillance
> practices, past, present and future.
> Now, more than ever, we need your support!
> The fight for civil liberties would never have come this
> far without your help. We can't give up now. Help EFF
> today!
> Sincerely,
> Shari
