This is Dan from People Against the NDAA. This message is short, but sweet and needs to get out to all those fighting this law.
Judge Katherine Forrest released her ruling on the National Defense Authorization Act today, permanently striking down sections 1021 and 1022. These sections allow for the indefinite detention of American citizens without charge or trial. In her earlier ruling, Judge Katherine Forrest said this measure has a "chilling effect on first amendment rights."
Based on her earlier temporary injunction, this ruling was expected. However, it is not time to celebrate. Based on the Obama Administration's previous action, an Appeal or a Motion for Reconsideration will likely be filed. The administration has also not said whether or not it is enforcing the NDAA, according to a letter from lawsuit organizer Tangerine Bolen. The case will then go to an appeals court.
The Obama administration has already filed an appeal against this ruling in as arrogant of a way as possible.
Stay vigilant, and join the movement to stop NDAA here.
An update on actions you can take will be coming soon. Stay tuned for updates.
