This hub will aggregate news and action items through a communal liveblog. It works best with a myriad of voices though, and we would love any and all of your participation—in particular the expert and passionate community here at FireDogLake!
You can help out by signing in and using the liveblog similar to a chatroom. All tweets to #PatriotAct are relayed into the liveblog as well, so you can participate that way too. We also have a series of ongoing campaigns on Twitter and Facebook (based on the #Skittles model Jon Pincus blogged about here), and we wholly endorse the ACLU’s call to action through phone calls to targeted committee democrats.
