This isn't going to be a regular email, because we have to respond quickly. Here's what you need to know.

Last night, The Guardian exposed a massive government spying program.

Using the Patriot Act, the U.S. government has been secretly tracking the calls of every Verizon Business Network Services customer—to whom they spoke, from where, and for how long—for the past 41 days.

Verizon Business Network Services is one of the nation's largest telecommunications and internet providers for corporations, so this could apply to the calls of millions of Americans.

What we don't know yet is how many other telecommunications companies have been issued similar orders by the government or what the scope of the government's program is.

This program is a disgrace. It's all over the news RIGHT NOW, so we have to respond immediately, with a strong public outcry to President Obama. He has to know that Americans will not stand for this gross abuse of government power.

Call on President Obama to put an immediate stop to this unconstitutional government spying program.

In 2012, Sens. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Mark Udall (D-Colo.) wrote, “When the American people find out how their government has secretly interpreted the Patriot Act, they are going to be stunned and they are going to be angry."

It's time to get angry. Make an urgent statement against this program by signing the petition right away and sharing it with all of your friends to let them know what's happening in this country.

Sign the petition.

Thank you for taking action,
Anthony for the ACLU Action team
