The Senate has passed a version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that includes a dangerous provision authorizing the U.S. military to pick up and imprison civilians — including Americans — without charge or trial, anywhere in the world, including in your own backyard. The provisions were negotiated by a few senators — in secret — and without proper Congressional review. The House of Representatives earlier passed its own version of the NDAA that authorizes worldwide war, and worldwide indefinite detention, even within America itself. And now, the House and Senate are meeting in secret to write a final version and find a way to rush this outrageous affront to our constitutional rights to President Obama's desk.
1) Ask President Obama fulfill his promise by vetoing the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) 2012 if it includes provisions to detain civilians and citizens indefinitely without a trial.
2) Tell your members of Congress to vote NO on
the NDAA if it contains indefinite detention without charge or trial.
