Coalition of 115 Groups Demands Congressional Investigation Into NSA Surveillance

Today, dozens of civil liberties organizations and Internet companies joined the coalition demanding that Congress initiate a full-scale investigation into the NSA’s surveillance programs. This morning, an updated letter was sent to Congress with 115 organizations and companies demanding public transparency and an end to dragnet surveillance. The letter comes in the midst of a nationwide call-in campaign.

In addition, the global petition has gathered more than 235,000 signatures since it was launched one week ago. The petition calls on Congress and the President to provide a public accounting of the United States’ domestic spying capabilities and to bring an end to illegal surveillance.
