Since Wednesday afternoon, 3,500 people have signed our petition on the Snoopers' Charter. Here's the text of the petition that they've signed. If you agree, can you sign it too then share it with your friends?

"We demand an end to indiscriminate retention, collection and analysis of everyone's Internet communications, regardless of whether they are suspected of a crime.

We want the police and intelligence agencies to have powers that are effective and genuinely protect our privacy and freedom of speech."

In today's Queen's Speech, the Government announced its rebranded and upgraded Snoopers' Charter with even more powers for the police and GCHQ.

Can you sign our petition against the new Snoopers' Charter then share it to your friends?

Against all expectations the Conservatives have won an absolute majority in the General Election. Theresa May has already said this morning that she will use this majority to pass a new Snoopers' Charter.

Can you join ORG today and give £5 a month to help us fight for digital rights at this incredibly challenging time?

The Snoopers' Charter is back. 4 members of the House of Lords have tabled an 18 page amendment to the Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill that is almost identical to the Communications Data Bill that we stopped in 2013.

The Lords are debating the new Snoopers Charter on Monday. Tell them to turn up and speak against the amendment!

Find Lords on Twitter or email a Random Lord on Write to Them.

We can expect to hear plenty from surveillance maximalists telling us they can make us safe. It's important to push back.

Why the rush? Data retention legislation that forces ISPs to collect data about us is being rammed through Parliament today without scrutiny.

Tell your MP to stop the Data Retention Stitch Up!
