We are blocking your access until you end mass surveillance laws

You have conducted mass surveillance of everyone illegally and are now on record for trying to enact those programs into law. You have presented Americans with the false dichotomy of reauthorizing the PATRIOT Act or passing the USA Freedom Act. The real answer is to end all authorities used to conduct mass surveillance. Until you do, thousands of web sites have blocked your access, and more are joining every day.

How it works

Participating web sites embed a small snippet of code on their pages that detects the IP address of Congress’ computers, redirecting anyone from Congress to this blackout page. To join with your site, simply embed this code on your page before the closing </HEAD> tag:

NSA spying makes us feel naked.

It’s like a strip search, online. We should never, ever have to worry the government is watching our private moments. But if Congress really wants to see our naked photos, we’ve got plenty for them! Join the protest with your photos: #ifeelnaked.org
