Quick Actions To Stop Torture & Save The Internet!
By Mike Fox for Donna, Mike H., Judy, Dr. Bill, Janis, Dan, Deb, Kimberly, and Bryan—Your PDA National Team
Much going on, so we’ll be brief. Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) needs your help to protect internet freedom and to stop a human rights violator from becoming Director of Central Intelligence (the CIA). We’re counting on you to weigh in on both of these impending votes today!
Congress is expected to vote on Net Neutrality early this week—we need them to overrule the Trump F.C.C and protect internet freedom. Also, controversial CIA Director nominee “Bloody” Gina Haspel will appear before the Senate intelligence committee on Wednesday, where she’ll have to defend her hands-on participation in “enhanced interrogation techniques” AKA “torture.” After that, the full Senate will vote. We need them to reject her nomination.
Time is short, so please use your fingers and your voice by quickly sending an email in support of Net Neutrality, and by clicking here to find your senators’ office phone numbers to call. You can also call the Capitol switchboard at (202)-224-3121 and ask to be connected with your Senators.
Ask to speak with the staffer working on Net Neutrality and share your concerns that ending Net Neutrality will unfairly increase consumer costs and decrease quality of service, while letting Internet Service Providers dictate which websites you can visit, how well other websites operate, and otherwise undermine internet freedom. If that staffer isn’t available, leave a voice mail.
Then, please click here for a list of the members of the Intelligence Committee—the committee phone number is (202)-224-1700. Ask to speak with your Senator’s staffer working on national security or intelligence matters. Tell them you expect the Senator to vote NO on Gina Haspel because she is not qualified to serve as CIA Director due to her horrendous record on human rights and her support for torture. If that staffer isn’t available, leave a voice mail.
And once you’ve contacted the Senators, please share this email with your friends, and then contribute what you can to our 24/7 efforts to oppose the Trump Regime.
Thanks so much for anything you can do right now.
