Dear Nasir,In 2011, Congress added a provision into the annual National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), allowing for the indefinite detention of American citizens -- without so much as ever giving them a trial! The provision permits the government to secretly detain American citizens, with no time limit on how long they can be held without trial.Here in New York, we have a great opportunity to have Indefinite Detention nullified in the city of Albany, which could lead to the resolution being replicated throughout the state.
That's why it's so critical you contact your member of the Albany Common Council
.
Here is a link to all the members of the council and their contact information. Click here to find out which ward you live in. Also, please contact Council President Carolyn McLaughlin at [masked] or [address removed]. You can fax members of the council at [masked]-5429. Here in New York, we have a great opportunity to have Indefinite Detention nullified in the city of Albany, which could lead to the resolution being replicated throughout the state.On October 7th, the Albany City Council will meet to hear arguments and potentially vote on Resolution 80.92.13.  Currently there are 7 sponsors and co-sponsors -- 8 are needed to win the vote.   This resolution is the strongest in the country, and it has a good chance of passing, with your help.If the resolution is adopted by Albany's City Common Council, law enforcement in Albany will be required to interpose between the U.S. military or other similar agencies and Albany residents under the NDAA's special provisions, or under any interpretation of presidential authority permitting detention of U.S. residents without trial under the Law of War.  New York's state and federal legislators, Governor, and Attorney General will be notified of the city's determination that local and federal officers will obey the letter of the Constitution and allow due process, including a trial, to all Albany residents.To get this to pass, we need you to contact your council member, as well as Council President Carolyn McLaughlin, at (518)[masked] or [address removed], and let them know your overall support for passing this resolution. And if possible, please attend the October 7th Albany City Council meeting, so we can flood the room with support. The meeting will be held at the City Hall, 24 Eagle Street, 2nd Floor Council Chamber, in Albany, NY, at 7p.m. Because of New York’s strong "home rule" laws, we can stop local law enforcement from being used to snatch American citizens -- and we can help protect citizens from being held indefinitely, without ever receiving a trial. It is vital that you call your council member RIGHT AWAY; the vote may be held this Monday, October 7th, at 7p.m.  If you don't get through on your first try, please keep calling. In Liberty, Steve VasquezNew York State CoordinatorCampaign For Liberty P.S. The Indefinite Detention provision in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) gave statists the ability to secretly target American citizens and throw them in jail for years -- or even decades -- without so much as ever giving them a trial! One way to help block implementation of this unconstitutional law is to stand up to it at the local level.  Please contact your council member todayThe vote will likely happen at Monday’s meeting. If possible, please attend the October 7th Albany City Council meeting, so we can flood the room with support. The meeting will be held at the City Hall, 24 Eagle Street, 2nd Floor Council Chamber, in Albany, NY, at 7p.m.
