A call to Action for Tangerine Bolen
Tangerine Bolen, Founder of Revolution Truth, is one of the brave Americans who along with Chris Hedges, brought suit against the US Government, declaring the NDAA Law was unconstitutional during 2012 and 2013. Tangerine has paid with her health. She has a mysterious illness that is completely incapacitating her, and no one so far has been able to diagnose her. She needs some financial contributions in order to afford what looks to be, a long road ahead of her for diagnosis and hopefully, treatment. She needs our help.
The NDAA Law created by the current administration, grew from the Patriot Act, and puts military control over US citizens for the first time since the US gained our freedom from the British. Others who later joined as plaintiffs in the lawsuit to stand with Tangerine and Chris, were Daniel Ellsberg, Noam Chomsky, Icelandic Parliamentarian Birgitta Jonsdottir, and Alexa O'Brien.
This team known as the Magnificent Seven, won, and the law was declared unconstitutional in Federal Court despite having that ruling overturned later in the appeals process.
You might also know that Tangerine Bolen started Revolution Truth after she finished Law School, a small international organization dedicated to defending whistleblowers, rule of law and legitimate democracies.
It costs a lot to sue the US Government, not just financially, but personally. Tangerine is paying a terrible price.
There is a fund raiser for her online to help her cover the costs of diagnosing this mystery illness. This is the link to the online fund raiser. Even a small amount would help. Your comments here are also most welcome.
