    A presentation about the National Defense Act of two years ago is the first item on the agenda at tonight’s Kodiak City Council work session.
    Jamie Fagan and Dana Carros, local members of People Against the National Defense Authorization Act, will offer the city a resolution entitled “Restoring Constitutional Governance of Kodiak.”
    The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 contains language members of PANDAA interpret as allowing the federal government to detain or kill American citizens without due process. Others disagree, saying the language in the Act only applies to terrorists.
    “This term terrorist is now being applied to anyone the government considers a threat,” says Dan Johnson, founder of the People Against the NDAA. He appeared on KMXT’s Talk of the Rock in May.
     “Let’s say you say I’ll never be a threat. I’ll never speak out politically, I’ll never say anything. How many wrong-door swat raids have we had in the United States? Five-thousand last year. What happens when it’s a wrong-door terrorist raid. What happens when it’s you that’s picked up and sent to Guantanamo Bay instead of the person they were going after?,” he said. “See, at one point each of us is going to want to speak up about something. And free speech is a cornerstone of our society. It’s something American has protected. And something we need to continue to protect. And Kodiak needs to continue to protect.”
    Fagan and Carros were invited to speak before the Kodiak City Council tonight by Councilmen Rich Walker and Randy Bishop.
    The work session starts at 7:30 tonight in the new Kodiak Public Library’s multi-purpose room.
