Across the country Americans plan to protest the recent passage of the NDAA bill and signing on New Year’s Eve by President Obama.
Citizens will gather outside Congressional Offices Feb. 4th from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. to protest NDAA 2012 (H.R. 1540), the controversial National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012.
Many Americans were shocked when it was signed quietly by President Obama New Year’s eve for it gives the U.S. Military and other agencies in the government Egyptian military style powers of arrest and detention of Americans anywhere, anytime and for any reason.
Constitutional Law Professor Jonathan Turley: “With Americans distracted with drinking and celebrating, Obama signed one of the greatest rollbacks of civil liberties in the history of our country … and citizens partied in unwitting bliss into the New Year.” Here is his statement: http://www.commondreams.org/view/2012/01/02-7
Occupy Rapid City supports the protest of the shocking Sections 1021 and 1022 of the NDAA Law that eviscerates Habeas Corpus, one of the most fundamental principles for which our Founding Fathers fought and died. This is not a liberal or conservative issue. This is an American issue. If you are a citizen of the United States you are now under permanent Martial Law. Please join us this Saturday as we demand that these unconstitutional Sections of the Law be repealed.
The local Occupy Rapid City group members will mostly be at Senator Thune’s office (as he voted for the bill) this Saturday from Noon until approximately 1:30 pm. Other groups may be there for longer times.
