Occupy Las Vegas Repudiates the National Defense Authorization Act

The National Defense Authorization Act, which would allow American troops to detain US citizens indefinitely without trial, is effectively a declaration of war upon the American people, and will turn this great land of ours into a battlefield. It is clear that this law will be used to further American Imperialism and to finance illegal and immoral wars which the vast majority of Americans oppose.

The General Assembly of Occupy Las Vegas demands that President Obama veto the National Defense Authorization Act, and that each of the 93 senators who voted for Senate Bill 1867 stand trial for the High Crime of Treason. As a sign of good faith, we demand that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder immediately state his position on this matter.

We are the 99%.
We will prosecute our oppressors.
We will not be silenced.

"One of the myths fostered by the State is that human beings -- the same human beings who are all too frequently guided in their personal lives by greed, revenge, jealousy, spite, and a host of other singularly unpleasant and destructive motives -- suddenly become selfless saints when they work on behalf of the State itself, and on behalf of "the people." This myth is critically necessary to the establishment, continuation and expansion of the State. But if you reflect on the matter even briefly, you will see that it cannot possibly be true."
