Tell them HELL NO to CISPA!
Obama administration has to make official statement on CISPA, because the petition at whitehouse.gov petition site passed 100,000 signature mark.

Read about the American Anti-Corruption Act, which would transform how elections are financed, how lobbyists influence politics, and how political money is disclosed.
The second print edition of the Occupied Tucson Citizen has just come off the presses with a print run of 10,000 copies and is now being distributed across Tucson and southern Arizona. This issue features the second of our series of irreverent profiles of Tucson’s One Percent, in this case Jim Click (“Click Here for Climate Catastrophe”). There are also articles about the Bus Riders Union mobilizing to protect the Ronstadt Transit Center against commercial development; how local activists exposed the City Council’s subversion of democracy (which they do by routinely declaring emergencies so resolutions aren’t subject to public review); a digest of important news events the Star didn’t bother covering; how the people of the land are Idle No More; an updated version of our guide to free meals in Tucson; our digest of global resistance; and much more, including art, poetry and, even, fashion. Find a copy in a cafe, occupied newspaper bin, community college or university near you. Or stop by our office at the Historic Y to pick up a copy. To help with distribution please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
