We Won! Tell Obama: Don't Appeal NDAA Court Ruling
We did it! But now we need your help putting pressure on Obama.
A federal court in New York just ruled indefinite detention UNCONSTITUTIONAL and issued a permanent injunction against use of that law. The provision would have allowed the military to detain civilians -- even Americans -- indefinitely and without trial if they're accused of certain crimes or even just associated with certain criminals.
Please add your name at right to tell Obama to back off of his support of indefinite detention, and tell your senators to oppose it when it comes up for a vote this fall.
It's an egregious violation of the Constitution, a disgusting infringement upon our due process rights, and has already had a chilling effect on activists and journalists.
That's why writer Chris Hedges, Noam Chomsky, Tangerine Bolen, and others sued to block it.
Shockingly, the Obama administration has consistently supported indefinite detention this year -- signing it into law in the dark of night on New Year's Eve and defending it in court. If we don't do anything, they'll probably keep fighting to protect this law!
Please add your name at right and then use these links to get your friends involved -- Obama will be deciding whether to appeal in a matter of days:
