Now you may think that what you will be asked to do in this article is some kind of late April Fool’s prank, but it’s not. It is instead meant to share with you a kind of brilliant form of activism. It is timely, to be sure, as it is about a congressional bill that could be voted on very soon…any day now.


In a very creative and off-beat campaign, one organization is trying to bring home how violative, of our privacy and peace of mind, is the unbridled and more and more “legal” right of our government to spy on us. In 14 years of the Patriot Act, there is no assurance that it has been effective in making us safer, yet to be sure it has taken away a lot of our rights. See OccupyTheory, “List of Pros and Cons of the Patriot Act”, January 1, 2015, https://occupytheory.org/list-of-pros-and-cons-of-the-patriot-act/. All these years later, it is still around, intact and unchanged.

An important part of it, known as Section 215, is slated to expire in June of this year. As Soda News tells us, “Section 215 is often referred to as the Patriot Act’s “library records” provision because it allows the FBI to order a library or any other source to produce, without a warrant showing probable cause (as required under the Fourth Amendment), all “tangible things” belonging to its target of interest including “books, records, papers, documents, and other items.” That includes books borrowed and websites visited by the target while at the library. Niceties demanded by the Fourth Amendment are ignored in Section 215 as long as the FBI “specifies” that its order is “for an authorized investigation … to protect against international terrorism or clandestine intelligence activities.”” See Yo'Adrienne, AFCL, “Patriot Act's Illegal Section 215 Due to Expire June 1, 2015, April 8, 2015, https://www.sodahead.com/united-states/patriot-acts-illegal-section-215-due-to-expire-june-1-2015/question-4777118/?link=ibaf&q=patriot+act+expire+june+2015. As you  might expect, this crates a large scope of power for the government, and critics of this section of the bill wish for it to not be renewed.

Almost simultaneously, however, the Cyber Internet Sharing Act (i.e., CISA) Bill threatens to enact another piece of legislation, worse than the Section 215in place. So, the proponents of enhanced surveillance have ensured that they have 2 opportunities to get what they want.

This campaign seeks to stop that. Rand Paul is threatening a filibuster as this CISA bill is such an important bill to fight. Various websites have made their voices heard. We can support this worthy cause by taking the action at https://www.ifeelnaked.org/?t=dXNlcmlkPTU0ODQ4MzI5LGVtYWlsaWQ9OTc1Mg==

Here is what the website, www.ifeelnaked.org states:

“#IFEELNAKED

NSA spying makes us feel violated. It’s like a strip search, online. As a crucial vote looms, show Congress how you feel. Add your photo to join the protest”

Now, don’t worry, just as the “bucket challenge” had an out, you don’t have to post a photo, as the website states:

“Can’t add a photo, contact Congress instead” [by clicking on the those words]

It’s up to you how you want to participate. And if you decide to go for it, just do it in your own way. You don’t have to light up any candles, put on slow jazz or soul music, unless you want to. I have found the photos all to have been done pretty respectfully while getting the point across.

So, please check it out and see if you want to join the #IFEELNAKED campaign.
