We are beginning a campaign to shut down
the FBI.

This can only be done by having Congress defund
the organization.

We also realize it will resurrect itself
under another name if we were to shut down
the current organization in 2015.

What this means is we need to create and
implement a philosophy and organization
that says no one can police without our
consent.


We need people to help organize and implement
this Policing by Consent model at the local
level.

We look forward to hearing from you on this subject.

Defending Dissent Foundation


Take Action [ http://org2.salsalabs.com/o/5492/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=19885 ] to Repeal the Surveillance State | View this email in your browser here [ http://org2.salsalabs.com/o/5492/t/0/blastContent.jsp?email_blast_KEY=1325355 ]




On Tuesday, U.S. Reps. Mark Pocan (D-WI) and Thomas Massie (R-KY) introduced the Surveillance State Repeal Act (HR 1466) [ http://www.defendingdissent.org/now/news/repeal-the-patriot-act/ ]. True to its name, the bill would repeal the two most notorious post-9/11 dragnet-surveillance laws and overhaul the National Security Agency's domestic surveillance program. It's an exceptionally strong and comprehensive bill supported by many civil-liberties organizations, including the Defending Dissent Foundation. It faces an uphill battle, so please click here to send an email to ask your Representative to support the bill [ http://org2.salsalabs.com/o/5492/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=19885 ]. Read more about the bill here [ http://www.defendingdissent.org/now/news/repeal-the-patriot-act/ ] and here [ http://www.defendingdissent.org/now/experts-laud-surveillance-state-repeal-act/ ].



Now, enjoy the rest of the news,







*Did Federal Courts Use 'State Secrets' to Protect a CIA Propaganda Front?* [ http://www.defendingdissent.org/now/news/did-federal-courts-use-state-secrets-to-protect-a-cia-propaganda-front/ ]
We don't know. We don't know anything about why this case got thrown out of court, and that's a problem.

*Trade-Pact Secrecy: Corporations Get To Read Drafts, Congress Doesn't * [ http://www.defendingdissent.org/now/trade-pact-secrecy-corporations-get-to-read-drafts-congress-doesnt/ ]
Congress should not "fast-track" the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement without making dramatically more information available to the public about what the deal will do, a coalition of 20 open-government groups (including the Defending Dissent Foundation) said today.

*Sunshine Week Was Overcast In Albany* [ http://www.defendingdissent.org/now/sunshine-week-was-overcast-in-albany/ ]
Last week was Sunshine Week, intended to promote government transparency, but in New York State, "instead of sunshine we have an eclipse," said Blair Horner of the New York Public Interest Research Group.



*9/11 Review Commission Urges More Ethnic Spying* [ http://www.defendingdissent.org/now/911-review-commission-urges-more-ethnic-spying/ ]
What did the FBI do wrong after the 9/11 attacks? According to a report by the 9/11 Review Commission released Wednesday, it didn't do enough racial profiling or domestic spying.



*Surveillance State Repeal Act Introduced!* [ http://www.defendingdissent.org/now/news/repeal-the-patriot-act/ ]
The bill would repeal the 2001 PATRIOT Act, which the NSA has cited as the legal basis for its phone metadata-harvesting surveillance program. It would also repeal the FISA Amendments Act, which contains provisions for email data-harvesting, while overhauling the NSA's domestic surveillance program. Additionally, the bill would make retaliation against federal national-security whistleblowers illegal, and ensure that any FISA collection against a U.S. person takes place only pursuant to a valid warrant based on probable cause.

*Experts Laud Surveillance State Repeal Act * [ http://www.defendingdissent.org/now/experts-laud-surveillance-state-repeal-act/ ]
Yesterday, at the Cannon House Office Building in Washington, DC, a panel of experts was invited to testify regarding the latest, and quite probably the boldest, legislative attempt to rein in the American surveillance state. The bill is called the Surveillance State Repeal Act. Among other items, the Act would finally repeal the Patriot Act.

*Stop Spying! Tech and Privacy Groups Tell Congress* [ http://www.defendingdissent.org/now/news/stop-spying-tech-and-privacy-groups-tell-congress/ ]
A coaliton of more than 40 tech companies and groups sent an open letter urging Congress to resist reauthorizing a key provision of the PATRIOT Act.

*Wanted: Slingshots* [ http://www.defendingdissent.org/now/news/wanted-slingshots/ ]
Bruce Schneier has built a career explaining the principles of security in plain English, helping the uninitiated to think clearly and critically about managing risk, and exposing the nonsense peddled by government spokesmen and high-tech hucksters. Kristian Williams reviews his new book: Data and Goliath.



*Why Are Supreme Court Protesters Treated More Harshly?* [ http://www.defendingdissent.org/now/news/why-are-supreme-court-protesters-treated-more-harshly/ ]
Protesters who break minor laws in Washington, D.C., usually get diversion: If they don't get arrested in the next six months to a year, the charges against them are dismissed. But not this group of protesters who spoke out in the Supreme Court.

*Judge Dismisses Charges Against 53 Gas Protesters* [ http://www.defendingdissent.org/now/judge-dismisses-charges-against-42-gas-protesters/ ]
It's raining dismissals in the Finger Lakes, where a local judge said he was acting "in the interests of justice" in dropping charges against activists arrested for trespass.

*NY City Councilmember Gets $30G For Occupy Arrest* [ http://www.defendingdissent.org/now/ny-city-councilmember-gets-30g-for-occupy-arrest/ ]
New York City Councilmember Ydanis Rodriguez, who was arrested and pinned to the ground by police during the eviction of Occupy Wall Street in November 2011, settled a federal civil-rights lawsuit yesterday for $30,000.





*Two Lawsuits Challenge Net Neutrality * [ http://www.defendingdissent.org/now/two-lawsuits-challenge-net-neutrality/ ]
The telecommunications industry has filed its first court challenges to the Federal Communications Commission's "Net neutrality" rules announced Feb. 26 - but they may be dismissed on the technical grounds that they were filed prematurely, before the rules had officially gone into effect.

*State Of Tennessee Sues The FCC For Daring To Step In And Block Its Law Blocking Muni-Broadband* [ http://www.defendingdissent.org/now/state-of-tennessee-sues-the-fcc-for-daring-to-step-in-and-block-its-law-blocking-muni-broadband/ ]
Apparently the state of Tennessee really, "really" doesn't want its citizens to have good, competitive broadband. While the FCC's net neutrality rules keep getting all the attention, as we've discussed, in the long run it may be a bigger deal that the FCC cleared the way for municipal broadband.



*Ted Cruz: Champion of the Constitution or Repressive Villain? Yes.* [ http://www.defendingdissent.org/now/news/ted-cruz-champion-of-the-constitution-or-repressive-villain-yes/ ]
Senator Cruz is a civil liberties rock star. Except when he isn't.
