Occupy Wall Street’s NDAA protests on Tuesday set the stage for activist Andy Stepanian to tell his story of Abu-Sayyaf, a man he met in federal prison who was sentenced to 25 years on bogus terrorism charges.
Stepanian himself was sent to prison for three years in 2006 on similarly outrageous grounds and that was long before the new unconstitutional law was enacted. The latest NDAA will allow the U.S. Government to make many others suffer the same fate without any chance of due process.
In the video, Andy tells his story to OWS supporters in front of the NYC office of Senator Gillibrand. [Note: the edits were made to cut out most of the mic checked responses for the sake of time/sanity.]
