Thursday, April 26th, the United States House, in a rushed vote, passed the HR 3523, also known as CISPA.
Dubbed the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, it allows the United States to collect information about users of the internet. It allows the United States to monitor all activity on the net and can be used to monitor any individual's internet usage. This monitoring is called deep packet inspection, it looks through everything that is going in and out of your computer, which is a blatant violation of our rights to privacy.
Looking through your mail is a crime for a postman, these rules should apply to the internet too.
The bill's intent is to help stop cyber attacks... However; the vague wording of the bill could allow the government to use this new power to go behind privacy protection and monitor, censor, and cut off online communication.
President Obama has already stated that he will veto the bill, but this is also what was said about NDAA.
Together, we can stop this act. The time to take action is now. We have defeated previous attempts to censor our only platform of true honest communication, the internet. SOPA was only the beginning.
Sign petitions, call your congressmen, and kill this act in the senate.
We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
CISPA, Expect us.
