Action Alert: Help Flagstaff Fight Indefinite Detention In The NDAA

ALERT! IMPORTANT!
ACTION NEEDED!

Support our Constitution and Civil Liberties this Tuesday, February 26 at City Hall.

SUPPORT A RESOLUTION BY THE FLAGSTAFF CITY COUNCIL supporting AZ House Bill 2573, which would stop state agencies from participating in indefinite detention of US Citizens without trial or due process.

Come to the meeting at 6:00 PM, Email council@flagstaffaz.gov or call 928-213-2015

Ask the Flagstaff City Council to support the Resolution supporting Arizona House Bill 2573 and remind them that they each took an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States of America from enemies foreign and domestic when they took office.

If signed into law, HB2573 would ban the state from providing “material support” or participating “in any way” with sections 1021 and 1022 of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) the sections which purport to authorize indefinite detention and are in effect today.

Sections 1021 and 1022 of the 2012 NDAA as they purport to authorize, 1) detainment of persons captured within the United States of America without charge or trial, 2) military tribunals for persons captured within the United States of America, and 3) the transfer of persons captured within the United States of America to foreign jurisdictions.

This clearly violates the following rights enshrined in the Constitution of the United States of America;

Article I Section 9, Clause 2’s right to seek Writ of Habeas Corpus;
The First Amendment’s right to petition the Government for a redress of grievances;
The Fourth Amendment’s right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures;
The Fifth Amendment’s right to be free from charge for an infamous or capitol crime until presentment or indictment by a Grand Jury;
The Fifth Amendment’s right to be free from deprivation of life, liberty, or property, without Due Process of law;
The Sixth Amendment’s right in criminal prosecutions to enjoy a speedy trial by an impartial jury in the State and District where the crime shall have been committed;
The Sixth Amendment’s right to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation;
The Sixth Amendment’s right confront witnesses;
The Sixth Amendment’s right to Counsel;
The Eighth Amendment’s right to be free from excessive bail and fines, and cruel and unusual punishment;
The Fourteenth Amendment’s right to be free from deprivation of life, liberty, or property, without Due Process of law;

TAKE ACTION!

Come to the meeting at 6:00 PM, Email council@flagstaffaz.gov or call 928-213-2015

Ask the Flagstaff City Council to support the Resolution supporting Arizona House Bill 2573 and remind them that they each took an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States of America from enemies foreign and domestic when they took office.
