National Defense Authorization Act

Today On Your Call: How is the NDAA affecting our right to protest?

On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the National Defense Authorization Act, which was signed last year by President Obama. The NDAA includes a controversial provision that could authorize the military to indefinitely detain anyone in the US without trial. A judge struck down the law in May. What’s the latest? Join us at 10am PST or post a comment here. Who is being impacted?  It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Shahid Buttar, a civil rights lawyer, and executive director of the Bill of Rights Defense Committee, a national non-profit grassroots organization, which defends the rule of law and rights and liberties challenged by overbroad national security and counter-terrorism policies

Daniel Ellsberg,  a former United States military analyst who released the Pentagon Papers to The New York Times and other newspapers in 1971
