Tech Companies Write Obama and Congress
The big 8 Tech Companies have sent a letter to President Obama and Congress urging them to scale back surveillance programs.
The 8 companies are: AOL, Apple, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Twitter, and Yahoo.
You can read their letter on the website they have set up, Reform Government Surveillance.
"We understand that governments have a duty to protect their citizens. But this summer's revelations highlighted the urgent need to reform government surveillance practices worldwide... "The balance in many countries has tipped too far in favor of the state and away from the rights of the individual - rights that are enshrined in our Constitution. "This undermines the freedoms we all cherish. It's time for a change."
