The Liberty Beat

By: Derrick Broze

On Monday the Albany, New York Common Council became the first city in America to prohibit indefinite military detention without trial, a reference to the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The Council unanimously passed Resolution 80.92.13 finding the sections of the NDAA dealing indefinite detention of American citizens to be unconstitutional. The resolution was supported by a coalition of activists and civil liberties groups, including People Against the NDAA (PANDA), the Patriot Coalition, the Occupy Albany Civil Liberties Initiative, Campaign for Liberty New York, and many other organizations.
