Petitioning United States Congress

Vote No on S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act

Senators need to hear from you, on whether you think your front yard is part of a “battlefield” and if any president can send the military anywhere in the world to imprison civilians without charge or trial. The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself. People can be imprisoned without charge or trial, indefinitely. The senators pushing the indefinite detention proposal have made their goals very clear that they want an okay for a worldwide military battlefield, that even extends to your hometown. That is an extreme position that will forever change our country. If the Senate finds itself unwilling to say NO altogether, then at least vote YES on the Udall Amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act.
