Help stop the NDAA

President Obama just signed the National Defense Authorization Act into law despite startling provisions that will allow the military to indefinitely detain American citizens.

It's a travesty, defying basic principles of justice and due process in perhaps the most extreme respect our nation has ever seen.

Thankfully, several lawmakers are keeping up the fight. Senator Dianne Feinstein has introduced legislation to undo these provisions of the NDAA, in the form of the Due Process Guarantee Act.

We need to urge other Senators to support it.  Will you click here to ask your lawmakers to stand with us? (http://act.demandprogress.org/go/395?akid=1116.147366.WIQT_L&t=4)

The Due Process Guarantee Act of 2011 amends the Non-Detention Act of 1971 by providing that a Congressional authorization for the use of military force does not authorize the indefinite detention—without charge or trial—of U.S. citizens who are apprehended domestically.

If there's enough of a public outcry, we have a real chance of making this happen.

More than 40 senators voted against the indefinite detention provisions of the NDAA -- and that was before the media and general public caught on to what was happening. 

Please urge your Senators to remedy this terrible wrong.  Just click here -- it'll only take a few seconds. (http://act.demandprogress.org/go/395?akid=1116.147366.WIQT_L&t=5)
The trouble with reality is that there's no background music.
