As reported last week, MCCRC activists went to Annapolis to join many others testifying in support of the “Maryland Liberty Preservation Act of 2013” (HB 558); the bill would prohibit state and county agencies or the MD National Guard from “knowingly aid[ing] an agency of the United States in the detention of a person” under the indefinite detention provisions of the NDAA. Below are video recordings of statements by Sue Udry (Defending Dissent), Thomas Nephew (MCCRC), and Mudusar Raza (CAIR-MD).
A playlist of all testimony can be accessed here.
We believe committee delegates were receptive to statements by so many diverse constituents, but would benefit from hearing from more of us. To send an email to any of the Montgomery County delegates on the committee — Delegate Bonnie Cullison (Dist.19, Aspen Hill), Delegate Ariana Kelly (Dist.16, Bethesda/Glen Echo), Delegate Kirill Reznick (Dist.39, Laytonsville), or all three — click the email link, personalize the message if you like, and send it.
Feel free to CC us at firstname.lastname@example.org; we’ll be happy to publish selected emails, let us know if that’s OK with you. Thanks!
