Fight the Militarization of Law Enforcement and Federal Courts

Militarization of Police
Urge your representatives to oppose this misguided bill.

Congress is considering a bill in the House that would: give the President unfettered authority to go to war in Iran, Indonesia, and elsewhere to fight terrorists; require local law enforcement and the FBI to turn over to military custody any terror suspects, including American citizens, captured in the United States without trial; and make the failed experiment at Guantanamo permanent by barring federal court prosecution of prisoners held there and barring repatriation of innocent men stuck there unless ordered by a court to transfer them.

Write your representatives today and urge them to oppose this misguided bill by voting for amendments to strip key provisions of the bill from the NDAA.
