Tomorrow community members across the nation will be gathering to protest and expose Mega-Spy Centers that are infiltrating our communities. These Mega Spy Centers a.k.a Fusion Centers collect and store information supplied by various law enforcement agencies and share this information to local, state and federal agency including private contractors. There are approximately 85 fusion centers in the U.S. -the Norwalk, CA Fusion Center is one of the largest in the country -known as Joint Regional Intelligence Center (JRIC). On March 11, 2014 the New York Times revealed that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) approved the sharing of raw NSA data with the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), the agency oversees that programs like fusion centers. NSA spying has come home to roost; through fusion centers, local police may have access, without a warrant, to all the data the NSA has on you.

333 Post Street
Light Brigade action and rally in solidarity with activists in Japan and New Zealand.
There will be nationwide demonstrations against the TPP on March 29th in New Zealand. And on March 30th in Japan.
TPP or the Trans Pacific Partnership is a free trade agreement being negotiated in utmost secrecy between 12 Pacific nations. While 600 corporate elements have been involved, not a single elected representative has been allowed to attend negotiations. It is not free and it is not all about trade.
TPP promises to ship more American jobs overseas, curtail internet freedom, raise the cost of medication and healthcare and be a total environmental disaster.
TPP seeks to enforce the lowest common denominator in regulations on all countries involved. It gives corporations leverage over local, elected governments and puts them in a position of total control. If signed it will be the end of representative Democracy.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If we do not get enough participants to hold up daylight banners and signs, the light brigade action will be postponed to dusk which will be around 7:30. The announcement will be made in advance

Two ACTIONS to take!
1) Reminder: Friday, March 7th is the LAST DAY to submit a PUBLIC COMMENT regarding the KXL Pipeline
2) Below is from Codepink to the State Dept. & Egyptian Gov. after the assault / deportation of Medea Benjamin and deportation of other women on a peaceful delegation who tried to enter Gaza through RafahEgypt to stand non-violently with the women of Gaza on International Women’s Day! (Note: my name might come up on the petition / letter – but u can click the field where it says your not me!
- Call the Egyptian Embassy now (202-895-5400), demand an apology, ask them to allow the remaining delegates to go to Gaza, open of the Rafah border, and end the brutal crackdown on journalists and Egyptian activists.
- Send this letter to the Egyptian government with our demands.
Despite frantic calls to the US Embassy during my 17-hour ordeal, they NEVER even got in touch with Medea. It is appalling that not only did the US government fail to intervene when an American citizen was being beaten, but that our government continues to send billions of US taxpayer dollars in military aid to the illegitimate and abusive Egyptian government.
Sign this petition to Egypt Desk at the State Department, then call them (202-647-4680). Demand to know why they did not assist a peaceful US citizen who was being abused by the Egyptian authorities, and let them know you want an immediate end to US military aid toEgypt.

Send a message to Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Congress to not “FAST TRACK” the TPP!
Come chalk the sidewalk (chalk provided) Get creative with signs and TP, speak out against the TPP!!
The TPP is being pushed in secret by 600 corporations. It a far reaching trade deal which would surrender national sovereignty and turn the Constitution into toilet paper by negating U.S. and state laws in areas like environmental protections, labor standards, off shoring jobs, food and drug safety and more!
It’s NAFTA on steroids for the Far East
