         AND PRIVACY: JULY 9, STATE HOUSE ====================================

/Dear UJPers,/

/The Boston Police Department has spied on UJP, Veterans for Peace, Code Pink  
and other peace groups.  While the BPD claims to have stopped this practice,  
the ACLU has filed legislation to protect political protest, regulate  
surveillance drones and advance a bold privacy agenda.  Please show support  
by attending the State House hearing, July 9 at 1:00 pm, hearing rooms A1  
and A2./

*Mark your calendar! The ACLU needs YOU!*

· Care about warrantless surveillance of your phone and internet records? 
· Think the location information generated by your electronic devices  
isn’t the government’s business? 
· Want to keep drones out of your back yard airspace?
· Believe that police shouldn’t monitor political protest?
The ACLU of Massachusetts is advancing a bold privacy agenda in the  
2013–2014 legislative session – an agenda that is even more critical in  
the wake of revelations about the NSA's massive domestic spying. Please join  
us at the State House as the legislature holds a hearing on the Electronic  
Privacy Act, the Drone Privacy Act, the Free Speech Act and other bills to  
protect privacy and stop surveillance.
*Judiciary Committee
Tuesday, July 9, 2013
1:00pm in Hearing Rooms A1 & A2*
We’ll be delivering testimony and hope you’ll be there to show your  
support. Strength in numbers can help get this critical legislation passed!
See you there, and thanks!
