Former Pres. George W. Bush signs the Patriot Act

This week the Senate will consider extending key Patriot Act provisions—even after millions of Americans have demanded an end to mass surveillance, and just a week after a high-level federal court ruled that the NSA’s mass collection of Americans’ phone records is illegal.

On Thursday at 7pm (local time) as the sun sets, people are gathering all across the country to demand the Patriot Act expire. These 50 emergency vigils are the most important thing we can do right now to pull off any senator thinking that maybe it’s ok to renew the Patriot Act.
