Americans protest against new attack on liberties

OCCUPY activists in the USA are protesting on Tuesday against controversial and draconian laws passed by the Obama regime over the New Year.

These allow the US state to indefinitely detain citizens, though this frightening truth is being hidden from the American public by official spin . 

Says the Occupy Wall Street site: "A call has been put out to let our government know the people will not tolerate any more attacks on our rights!

"January 3rd will be a spontaneous show of people power in reaction to Obama’s treasonous signing of the National Defense Authorization Act.

"Not only does this act violate our first, third, fourth, fifth and sixth amendments, as well as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, but this Act was signed quietly this past New Year's Eve violating what little trust remained between the people and their established government. We see what’s happening here, and we will not stand for it."

Blogger Jonathan Turley writes: "For civil libertarians, the NDAA is our Mayan moment. 2012 is when the nation embraced authoritarian powers with little more than a pause between rounds of drinks."
