RENO — Occupy Reno will gather at 7 p.m. today at City Hall to march against the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2012.

This demonstration is part of a national coordinated effort of the Occupy movement to challenge the constitutionality of the act, signed into law by President Obama on Dec. 31.

The legislation has come under fire by many groups for provisions that could “permit the indefinite detention of anyone around the globe suspected of terrorism, including U.S. citizens, using indistinct and problematic definitions,” according to a statement from Occupy Reno.
