 Still Time to Call Obama for Veto

Call President Obama 202-456-1111

The Final Push

To Veto Indefinite Detentions without Trial


The President has neither vetoed the NDAA bill nor he has signed it yet. Which means there is still opportunity to ask him to veto it.


The NDAA bill passed by Congress contains some of the most dangerous provisions we've ever seen: it would allow the government to imprison anyone indefinitely without trial or charges—even US citizens just based on suspicion.


This is America. We have rights, and we demand that our government respect and protect them.


Call President Obama Today: 202-456-1111


1. Call President Obama urging him to veto indefinite detentions in NDAA 2012 bill: 202-456-1111.


2. Call ten friends, colleagues and relatives to call President Obama as well. Do it every day.


3. Forward this action alert with your friends.

 

What is the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)?


Read an excellent editorial of New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/16/opinion/politics-over-principle.html?

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is a bill passed by Congress in early December. It contains provisions that, if made law, would order the military to arrest, and indefinitely detain, even US citizens merely accused (but never proven) of involvement in terror-related crimes. Americans who care about liberty and freedom must take immediate action. Whether concerned about communities vulnerable to racial profiling in the war on terror, or the ideological profiling apparent in the FBI's investigation of dozens of peace & justice activists around the country, or simply preserving the right to trial or the longstanding prohibition on domestic military deployment, all Americans share a stake in this struggle.
