The Delegates of the Continental Congress of 2009 wholeheartedly support and encourage the Free People of each state to engage in the following:

1. Visit and click on the Privacy Reference List, study all information provided in that list, and act in their best interest according to the information provided;

2. Inform themselves about the police and surveillance state that is being created in America in direct violation of the 4th, 5th, 9th, and 10th Amendments;

3. Submit open records requests to the appropriate agencies requesting the items listed below. Consider coordinating these efforts with other activists;

a. Copies of all Memorandums of Understanding (MOU’s) between participating Fusion Center agencies and any other party, agency, organization, institution, governmental body or individual that relates to Fusion Center information/data sharing;

b. Copies of Fusion Center Privacy Policies;

c. Copies of all Strategic Reports produced by or received by said Fusion Centers, including the distribution list and citations for each produced Strategic Report; to include identification of the authoring agency of any received Strategic Report;

4. Expose the findings of said open records requests through online social media, existing liberty media, liberty-minded organizations, and other means of public dissemination;

5. Approach fellow citizens and groups to build an issue-based coalition in order to lobby local and state government to ensure that:

a. Unless directly involved in a crime, no private sector entities will be involved in the operation of Fusion Centers;

b. Only data and intelligence concerning federal crimes may be made available to any federal agency;

c. Fusion Centers are not to be used to conduct surveillance on an entire group based on the presence of one suspicious individual;

d. Ensure the creation of a “privacy committee” to oversee the privacy policy of your local Fusion Center and ensure compliance;

e. Ensure compliance with CFR 28, part 23;

6. Lobby your state legislature to nullify the Patriot Act;

7. Implement a Community Response Hotline; the People are encouraged to develop alternative means of communication, i.e. ham radio, short wave, or any other means of electronic communication;

8. Be aware that no citizen is required to release their social security number and should not release it if there is an alternative method;

9. Conduct business only with companies that do not require a social security number;

10. Use non-traceable forms of currency (i.e. prepaid credit cards) and non-traceable technology (i.e. prepaid cellular phones);

11. Use open-source software solutions, encrypt their computer hard drives, and use proxy servers when connected to the Internet, for computer security and privacy reasons;

12. Understand that everyone, including the government may record photos and video on public property;

13. Read licensing software agreements and be aware of the privacy ramifications of signing up for such services;

14. Promote local and state legislation that forces local and state governments to further scrutinize the process of accepting grants or other funding concerning surveillance and the militarization and federalization of local police departments from Federal Agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice;

15. Lobby for a local resolution banning red-light cameras or other surveillance equipment in public areas.

16. Furthermore, without delay, the public is advised to contact their state and local representatives to open up a dialogue to assure that they repeal and propose no further legislation that violates the Privacy Clauses of the Constitution. Americans should also contact their local sheriff and demand they uphold their sworn oath or affirmation to protect and defend the Privacy Clauses of the Constitution.
