It's astounding: The government wants to be able to detain civilians indefinitely, without charges or a trial.
We're raising money to support our lawsuit and activism in opposition to indefinite detention: We're a cash-strapped band of lawyers and activists, taking on the Department of Justice and their near-infinite resources.
Obama has fought us hard in court -- there's a good chance this case will be appealed all the way to the Supreme Court.
75% of your donation will go to the Chris Hedges vs Barack Obama legal team to cover court costs. (Our lawyers are working for free, but filing fees, transcript costs, and the like are piling up.)
25% of your donation will be split between activist groups Demand Progress and Revolution Truth to support our anti-indefinite detention work. (We've been coordinating the lawsuit and driving constituent contacts to Congress.)
