Sign Petitions to Restore Habeas Corpus

Hi Newshackers,

The link below will take you to Human Rights First's online petition to restore Habeas Corpus.

http://action.humanrightsfirst.org/campaign/habeas_vote

FindHabeas.org is the ACLU's site devoted to this issue. The link below is to their petition.

If you have not already done so, please sign both petitions above. Signing these petitions will add you to the overall number of petition respondents, and will send emails to your state's representatives asking them to restore this most fundamental right, which we lost in the passage of the Military Commissions Act last fall.

Congress will act on new legislation to restore Habeas Corpus shortly. Can't urge you enough to act on this now.
