Tell President Obama and Congress: End indefinite detention and close Guantanamo. #P21 #NDAA

9 Jan
Osama bid Laden may be dead, but the War on Terror is still being used as an excuse to sacrifice our values and our rights.

On New Year’s Eve, President Obama signed a bill into law that gives him and future presidents the power to use the U.S. military to pick up and indefinitely detain civilians accused of supporting terrorism — including American citizens — anywhere in the world without charges and without a trial.

This represents a further entrenchment of the Guantanamo mindset that jettisons our most cherished values and our constitutional rights all in the name of national security.

I just signed a petition telling President Obama and Congress to close Guantanamo and end indefinite detention. I hope you sign it, too.

You can find out more information and sign the petition at the link below.

Indefinite detention without charges or trial is fundamentally contrary to the democratic values that our system of government rests upon.

The worst thing we can do in the face of this is remain silent.

What goes through you mind?
