PANDA was founded in 2012 to push back against the provision of the NDAA bill which allows for indefinite detention of American citizens by the U.S. military at the order of the president

(Dec. 10, 2013) — NDAA Resistance:

This past week, thanks to all of you, has been amazing. Between two videos, Daphne “Just a Mom” Lee’s speech has gone from 8,000 views in our last update, to over 150,000 total views. That’s 15x the reach of our most popular video. We got over 400 new subscribers, and over 50 people signed up to take back their town. The video was was covered by Ben Swann, SGT Report, Ultraculture, and more.

Then, within one week of launching the video, she was interviewed by former Texas Congressman Ron Paul, who has noted that he intends on supporting the Anti-NDAA movement nationwide. That is huge. Because of your work sharing the video, especially Daniel Noe and Western Journalism, the only Congressman to introduce a standalone bill to repeal Section 1021 of the NDAA heard of, and is willing to lend support to, the PANDA movement.

Thank you!

New tools – Strategy sessions

Last week, we launched PANDA Strategy sessions. Over the past week and a half, I have talked to over 20 people, and helped them get started #takingback their towns. I have 20 more this week. The passion has been infectious, the diversity amazing, and the people inspiring. We are, from now on, sitting down with any of you who want to get started on the right foot and giving you the tools, resources, and connections we have in your state/city.  If you want to sit down for 15-30 minutes to get started, simply reply to this email. As a result of these sessions, we have seen activity across the nation explode, and we don’t want you to miss out.

New tools – PANDA Take Back Forums
One of the constant requests we got was to provide a way for you to connect with other activists in your state. Well, now, it’s here. Today, we are officially launching the take back forums, where you can connect, work with, and meet other people in your area taking back their town from the horrors of indefinite detention. So go ahead, introduce yourself, and happy connecting!
New resources – List of Towns with resolutions against the USA PATRIOT Act
One of the most common objections we hear all the time is “This is a National issue, we can’t deal with it in our town.” A new resource we found to help you easily shoot down this argument (besides the ever-growing list of towns that have passed resolutions against the NDAA) is a list of over 400 cities that have passed resolutions against the PATRIOT Act. If a town in your state would pass a resolution against the PATRIOT Act, why won’t your town pass a resolution against the NDAA?

New resources – Xbox LIVE gamers now considered “Associated Forces” of terrorism

According to our “Representatives” in the U.S. Senate, we needn’t worry about the NDAA because YOU would never be considered “associated forces,” or accused providing “substantial support” for terrorism. Well, according to a document recently leaked from the NSA, if you play on Xbox LIVE, World of Warcraft, or Second Life, you could be considered “associated forces” of terrorism.http://www.policymic.com/articles/76157/the-nsa-is-spying-on-xbox-live-and-world-of-warcraft-gamers-wtf

This movement doesn’t exist without you. Thank you for standing up. Thank you for saying ENOUGH. We will not allow this tyranny to be brought to our soil. Our cities are NOT a battlefield. Our towns are NOT a battlefield. Our country is NOT a battlefield.
It’s time to take it back.
