On Dec.31st 2011 Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act into law. Clauses in that bill legalize the indefinite imprisonment of any American citizen without charges, evidence, trial or legal representation - all of which violates the 1st, 5th and 6th amendments to the constitution  - on the accusation, not proof, that the person has committed a "belligerent act" or "supported" a force hostile to the US. These terms were chosen for their vagueness, have no legal meaning, and can be used to justify the arrest and imprisonment of any person for anything. All members of Congress who voted "yea" to this bill violated their oaths of office to "protect and defend the Constitution of the United States". All but 10 senators voted "yea" while the House was split.  Some members of Congress are moving to reverse the damage with the Due Process Guarantee Act, a bill that would restore the rights of Habeas corpus, trial by jury and legal counsel guaranteed in the Bill of Rights to all American citizens and legal residents. The bill is stuck in committee in both Houses and as of this writing does not have enough votes to pass.   Find your representatives and how they voted here: http://www.opednews.com/populum/printer_friendly.php?content=a&id=147044. Congress also passed the "Trespass Act", a bill that would have made ML King's March on Washington an illegal act. In addition, Senator Lieberman is sponsoring the "Enemy Expatriation Act" a bill that would remove all citizenship rights of any person accused (not proven) of having committed a "belligerent act". 

Please sign this petition. Our goal is one million signatures. Our signatures will be delivered to every member of Congress.

"We, the undersigned, request immediate passage of the Due Process Guarantee Act and pledge not to vote for any Member of Congress who does not support the repeal of the unconstitutional provisions of the NDAA ."
