.The 99%. Know Little About AUMF 2001 and NDAA 2012 by RepealAUMF.org
According to an #AumfHungerStrike activist 99% of Americans have no idea they can be detained indefinitely without charge under NDAA 2012 Section 1021, and then executed without trial under AUMF 2001.
)(American grandfather, long distance rider, civil liberties Jeffersonian and AUMF Hunger Striker IronBoltBruce conservatively estimates that (a) 90 percent of the American public are unaware they can be indefinitely detained without charge or trial under NDAA 2012 Section 1021 (Public Law 112-81), and (b) 90 percent of those are unaware they can be executed without due process of law under AUMF 2001 (Public Law 107-40, the post 9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force). If accurate that means (a) only 1 in 100 Americans are aware of their potential loss of life or liberty under these fascist and unconstitutional Bill of Rights and habeas corpus nullifications, and (b) the deer-in-the-headlights obliviousness of the remainder of our citizens provides a whole new definition for "The 99 Percent".
The legality of the NDAA 2012 indefinite detention provisions is dependent upon the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force. If we repeal AUMF, we undo NDAA at the same time. H.R. 198 is proposed legislation that will do just that. The bill will also bring an end to over 11 years of a so-called "War on Terrorism" that has generated trillions in revenues for defense contractors and the banksters behind the curtains at the cost of hundreds of thousands of innocent lives abroad and a bankrupted Treasury at home. It stands to reason, then, that these corporate interests may go to any lengths - including
Passing H.R. 198 intact or otherwise repealing AUMF 2001 will not be an easy battle, but it is a battle that We the People must fight - if not for our own sake, then for the freedom and future of our children and grandchildren. To win that battle, we will have to overcome powerful banking, defense, intelligence, counterterrorism and homeland security lobbies by making their puppet politicians in Washington more afraid of losing control of the country than they are of losing the corporate cash flowing into their personal coffers. That will require a resurgence of Sixties-style in-the-streets IRL activism which we can generate by mobilizing the 100 million Americans now living in poverty and waking up as many of the rest as we can. They cannot be aware without also being angry, and to raise that awareness we have initiated a nationwide AUMF Hunger Strike for which we need not only your support but your participation.
