Washington, DC -- Demand Progress members have sent nearly 100,000 letters to Congress in opposition to CISPA, and more than 170,000 have signed an open letter to Mark Zuckerberg urging him to have Facebook withdraw its support for the bill.
The House of Representatives is expected to vote on the bill later this week.

According to Demand Progress executive director David Segal, "CISPA would obliterate online privacy, give the military crazy new abilities to spy on the Internet, and potentially let ISPs block sites and cut off users accused of piracy."
He continued, "It's ridiculous that House Republicans would ram through the legislation with limited vetting, and obscene that Facebook would betray its users by lending support to the legislation."
Demand Progress is a grassroots organization which fights for civil liberties, civil rights, and government reform. It has more than one million members.
