US citizens: you can sign your name to the campaign to repeal part of the U.S.A. P.A.T. R.I.O.T. Act. This would make the police once again have to get search warrants before they can get information from bookstores or libraries about what you have read or borrowed. See: www.readerprivacy.org
This is a step in the right direction, but it does not go far enough. The PATRIOT act was extended in December 2003 to give the police equally easy access to many kinds of transaction records about you. The PAT RIOT act attacks your freedom in other ways, too, and not all of them will expire in 2005. See http://www.aclu.org/safeandfree/. Also, here is a direct link to contact your members of congress.
