Regardless of who was really behind them and why, chances are the Boston Marathon bombings would not have happened if unconstitutional laws like AUMF 2001 and NDAA 2012 Sec 1021 were not on the books.
Monday's Boston Marathon bombing killed 3 Americans and wounded more than 170 others. It was clearly an act of terrorism, but as with 9/11 no terrorist organization has thus far claimed responsibility. That's seen by some as an indication that the act was state-sponsored. If so, what state?
Veteran rights activist calls on American grandparents and other concerned citizens to join #AumfHungerStrike, a nationwide hunger strike to last until AUMF 2001, the post-9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force, is repealed.
At 6:00am ET on 27 March 2013 world record holding long distance motorcycle rider and lifelong civil liberties activist IronBoltBruce began a fast that will not end - in his words - "...until AUMF 2001 is gone or I am."
The post 9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force is at the root of many evils including an Imperial Presidency, unconscionable drone strikes and unconstitutional indefinite detention under NDAA 2012.
We have been calling on you to rise up against the indefinite detention provisions of NDAA 2012 since corporate fascist puppet Democratic president Barack Obama signed it into law on New Year's Eve 2011.
WE HAVE BEEN WRONG.
NDAA 2012 is only one symptom. AUMF 2001 is the disease.
Slide 1 of 16: On 9/14/2001 U.S. Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) stood alone before Congress opposing AUMF. On 3/5/2013 U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) stood alone before the Senate trying to protect us from AUMF. It's time they stand together to repeal AUMF!
