    Stop the NDAA in your State, County and Town

    As Congress focused last week on the so-called “indefinite detention” provisions of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), organizers of the “Nullify the NDAA” event in Los Angeles say that it’s states and local communities, and not Congress, who will ultimately put a stop to such powers.

    Grassroots and media attention has turned towards Virginia, which became the first state in the country to reject, by law, participation in these newly-claimed federal powers. In Arizona, a similar bill is awaiting a signature from Governor Jan Brewer.

    And, more than ten local governments around the country have already passed similar legislation, including the California cities of Fairfax and Santa Cruz.

    “In the 1850s, when Congress passed a law to eliminate due process for runaway slaves, Northern States passed a series of “Personal Liberty Laws” to defy the federal act,” said Michael Boldin, executive director of the Tenth Amendment Center (TAC). He continued, “Some were so effective, like in Massachusetts, that after passage not a single runaway slave was ever captured by federal agents and returned to bondage in the South. It’s in that spirit today that states and local communities are standing up for due process and passing legislation known as the “Liberty Preservation Act.”

    A recent Washington Post op-ed by former officials from the Reagan, Bush I, and Bush II administrations denounced such measures as “dangerously unconstitutional.” The op-ed authors also noted that a broad coalition was working together in support of the state and local efforts to reject NDAA detention powers.
    Sounds good?
