The Romero institute, a non-profit law firm, is spearheading a mission to strengthen an anti-National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Santa Cruz resolution passed in April 2012 through its project, the Campaign to Make Santa Cruz a Constitution Protection Zone. Last Wednesday, the group organized an anti-NDAA event at the Resource Center for Nonviolence, with People Against the NDAA (PANDA) director Dan Johnson as the keynote speaker.

The NDAA has been in effect for 51 years and prior to 2012 has primarily existed to fund U.S. armed forces and aid military families. As a result of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the NDAA has transformed into a “haystack bill” that continues to grow with added provisions such as 1021 and 1022, which were signed into effect on Dec. 31, 2011 by President Obama.
