Tell the Senate “NO to Indefinite Military Detention!”
The U.S. Senate is considering the unthinkable: changing detention laws to imprison people — including Americans living in the United States — indefinitely and without charge.
The Defense Authorization bill is now on the Senate floor with troubling provisions that would give the President — and all future presidents — the authority to indefinitely imprison people, without charge or trial, both abroad and inside the United States and would mandate military detention of some civilians who would otherwise be outside of military control. The indefinite detention without charge or trial provisions are so harmful that the Obama White House has threatened to veto the bill if they are not removed from it.
Urge your senators to vote YES on the Udall amendment to the Defense Authorization bill which would remove the harmful provisions from the bill and in their place, mandate a process for Congress to use an orderly process to consider whether any detention legislation is needed.
Combine this with the domestic drone program and Obama defending his legal right to kill anyone anywhere and this is damn terrifying.
