This proposal will be considered by the General Assembly of Occupy Los Angeles on Saturday night (7:30 PM, City Hall steps):
"Occupy Los Angeles Rejects the National Defense Authorization Act
Occupy Los Angeles demands that President Obama veto the National Defense Authorization Act. The legislation includes provisions which destroy the Constitutional rights of Habeas Corpus and Due Process. American citizens and all people everywhere have the inalienable right to contest their imprisonment and to a civilian trial by jury. We reject this and all legislation which abridges these rights as well as the false belief that doing so will make the nation more secure. The bill also contains sanctions against the oil industry and monetary systems of Iran which are clear predecessors to a military attack. Additionally, the bill funds wars that the majority of Americans oppose. These endless, senseless wars only serve the Corporatist interests of the 1% and we oppose this and all legislation which enables and perpetuates them."
If you support this, please be at City Hall at 7:30 PM on Saturday, December 3rd.
