Sun Mar 18 2012 Occupy Santa Cruz Shows Chilling Effects of National Defense Authorization Act
NDAA: Indefinite Military Detention Without Charge Or Trial On December 31st, 2011, President Barack Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012, codifying indefinite military detention without charge or trial into law for the first time in American history. The NDAA’s dangerous detention provisions would authorize the president — and all future presidents — to order the military to pick up and indefinitely imprison people captured anywhere in the world, far from any battlefield.

The NDAA went into effect on March 1st, 2012, On March 3rd, several dozen members of Occupy Santa Cruz marched from the Santa Cruz Courthouse to the town clock, where a rally was held protesting the NDAA and the possible ramifications of provisions in the act that relate to the detention of individuals who are suspected to be 'terrorists'.
