Anti-NDAA Bill Introduced in Nevada
Passage of the Nevada Liberty Preservation Act will demonstrate the Legislature‚Äôs commitment to Constitutional Law and Individual Liberty by restoring the right to due process to all persons in Nevada.
The 2012 National Defense Authorization Act was overwhelmingly passed by Congress and signed into law by President Barack Obama on December 31, 2011.
The 2012 NDAA declares the United States to be a battlefield in the war on terror and Section 1021 & 1022 authorize the indefinite detention, without charge or trial, of all persons on US soil suspected of terrorist activity or accused of ‚Äėbelligerent behavior‚Äô. This violates at least 23 Articles of and Amendments to both the US and Nevada Constitutions.
PANDA, a national, nonpartisan, grassroots organization, founded in January 2012, is committed to the nullification of the NDAA‚Äôs unconstitutional authorizations at the state and local levels of government. PANDA started in Bowling Green, OH and has since expanded to 30+ states with over 90 chapters nationwide.
The three Nevada Chapters of PANDA worked resolutely to gain support for this initiative within the State Legislature. Daphne Lee, Clark County Chapter Head said, ‚ÄúWe are working hard every day to restore the rights of every Nevadan, and will work tirelessly until we have succeeded‚ÄĚ
Christopher Corbett, Nevada State Coordinator for PANDA said, ‚ÄúI appreciate the community support backing up our efforts and the courage of those members of our governing bodies who are willing to actively protect the constitutional rights of their constituents. We need to restore the Constitutionally protected right to due process for every American.‚ÄĚ
The Nevada Chapters of PANDA are among the most active chapters in the nation. While introduction of BDR 728 marks a major milestone, the group has also made significant progress at the City and County levels.
