End Indefinite Detention

A discussion with our founder, Rocky Anderson, and BORDC's Shahid Buttar & George Friday. The issue of indefinite detention is a clear injustice, which must be righted if we are to retain our constitutionally protected civil liberties. The Bill of Rights Defense Committee has an outstanding record fighting for our rights.

The Bill of Rights Defense Committee (www.BORDC.org) is working around the country to support local and statewide coalitions challenging the NDAA's domestic military detention provisions. In 18 cities, residents have clamored for--and secured--official city council resolutions. Four states, both red and blue, have adopted statewide resolutions to restore Due Process. Your town and your state could be next.

Local and state resolutions are immensely important to the struggle to challenge the national security state. Every resolution positions not only grassroots activists, but also elected officials, to engage their respective congresspeople when the NDAA comes up for reauthorization later this year. Every campaign educates the public, and many also inform the press and media, such as the one that secured a unanimous vote in the San Francisco Board of Supervisors on February 26, 2013.

BORDC specializes in helping grassroots activists and organizers build diverse coalitions at the local level able. We're eager and excited to work with supporters of the Justice (and any other) Party to advance goals--like due process, privacy, and limits on executive power--that resonate across the political spectrum.
