Subject: 5 days left to tell DHS to STOP REAL ID

Declan,

For politech:

A broad coalition of organizations across the United States is urging
the public to submit comments rejecting the illegal national
identification system created under the Department of Homeland
Security's REAL ID program:

http://www.privacycoalition.org/stoprealid/ 

The website has links to portals for web submissions, as well as how to
fax your comments. Also included are sample comments such as:

"The plan will create a massive national identification system without
adequate privacy and security safeguards. It will also make it more
difficult for people to get driver's licenses. And it will make it too
easy for identity thieves, stalkers, and corrupt government officials to
get access to such personal information as a home address, age, and
Social Security number."

We urge your readers to submit their comments, and to tell their friends
and allies to do so as well. Comments are due May 8th at 5pm.

-gr
