John and Catherine were both extensively interviewed about their experiences visiting fusion centers across the country, the knowledge they gained attending law enforcement conferences and interviewing local, state and federal law enforcement agents, and the successes of their local / direct activism efforts with regards to fusion centers through their local organizations Texans for Accountable Government and the Liberty Restoration Project.
The episode of Conspiracy Theory will include footage of the infamous Liberty Restoration Project confrontations in the Governors office immediately following the MIAC report which profiled liberty lovers as potential violent threats as well as footage of Operation Defuse Activists pushing the envelope at fusion center check points in an effort to better understand the mechanics of the police state.
This is a very special occasion for us and I hope you can join us in celebrating the accomplishment of one of our goals - taking our knowledge of fusion centers to the mainstream.
Operation Defuse activists would like to extend a sincere THANK YOU to the dozens of donors who funded our travels, the wonderful folks who gave us safe places to rest our heads and food to fill our bellies as we traveled from community to community working toward a defused police state. We'd also like to extend a special thanks to We Are Change Chapters all across the country for their help and hospitality at EVERY STOP along the way!
With your help we were able to visit 16 fusion centers across the country, file open records requests at over 20 fusion centers to date, attend the National Fusion Center Conference and the Texas Homeland Security Conference, conducted over a dozen activist trainings, and successfully influence local fusion centers through local legislative action.
Next year we intend to attend as many police state conference we can find, finish our initiative to file open records requests to all fusion centers, and compile our collective knowledge and video footage into a documentary of sorts.
Again, come support Operation Defuse at this watch party / fundraiser - We believe this is a very important effort and your energy and contributions are always appreciated.
