Protect Our Civil Liberties

November 16, 2003

The National Writers Union has a long history of opposing censorship of all forms and defending our civil liberties. Such freedom of speech and information is vital for writers to do their work.

Congress is currently very close to giving government law enforcement agents even broader powers to force businesses to turn over sensitive private information about their customers without any judicial review. This information will include your travel records and other purchases and you will be blocked from even knowing that such information has been disclosed.
