Introduction Freedom from Covert Harassment and Surveillance (FFCHS), a human rights organization, was founded in 2006 as a conference call group for targeted individuals (TI's) connected over the Internet and began to realize the prevalence of group stalking and electronic surveillance. Targeted Individuals (TI's) of domestic terrorism originate from many different backgrounds and are affected physically, psychologically, socially, and economically as a result of the organized stalking and DEW torture. FFCHS battles two main types of covert actions against citizens: organized stalking and directed energy weapons torture. Organized stalking is an activity common to right wing hate groups. Also called "group stalking," "terrorist stalking," "vigilante stalking," and "organized stalking, it is a parallel justice system designed to ruin the careers and lives of those such hate groups perceive to be acting against the group's values: gay and lesbian individuals, people they perceive to be liberals, whistleblowers, people who live alternative lifestyles, peace, civil rights or environmental activists, or others who have angered a member of the group. Methods of stalking and harassment include the following: killing pets physical assault verbal abuse stealing or damaging mail harassment by email and phone vandalizing residences and vehicles enlisting law enforcement and firefighters friendly to their cause in the harassment committing a crime then framing the TI for that crime following TI by vehicle damage to TI's vehicle street theater staged skits designed to frighten and intimidate the TI ongoing continuing harassment over many days, months and even years forming a large group of stalkers with each member of the group doing a portion of the stalking persistence the group uses its connections in other locations to continue the harassment even as the TI moves to another city or state. In some cases members

follow the TI to a new home town using lies, money and intimidation to coerce non group members into stalking the TI noise campaign very frequent sounds (sirens, alarms, beeping sounds, loud engine sounds, booming sounds) which follow TI everywhere 24/7 surveillance stalkers work in shifts parked in their cars around the TI's home or workplace the foundation of group stalking the slander campaign: the stalkers approach everyone the TI interacts with: friends, family members, co workers, supervisors, neighbors, etc., and spread lies that the TI is a homosexual or a criminal. This is an effective tactic because most people could not imagine a stranger would lie to them the stalkers present themselves as a civic organization that works with law enforcement and monitors terrorists and other criminals they may use fake badges or fake official files to convince people the TI is a criminal

Today's well scripted and highly networked stalking groups can totally destroy the life of a target, while if the target complains, he or she is likely to be regarded as mentally ill because so many of the attacks look like life's normal mishaps. This crime is therefore covered up seamlessly by the mental health system. Make no mistake - some of these "mishaps" are very serious and destroy the target's reputation, credibility, ability to earn a living, and family and business relationships. The telling aspect of organized stalking as opposed to normal life is the frequency of these "mishaps." Stalking groups now target around one person in every hundred, and nowadays, you do NOT have to be "somebody special" to be targeted. Many targets do not know why they are being targeted. Furthermore, these stalking groups: - Are networked all across North America (and in fact, most other countries, from reports) and truly believe they are doing great community service, based on vicious lies constantly fed them by their leaders - they do not see themselves as criminals (some see themselves as called by God to harass and torture) - Follow the target wherever the target travels or moves, and that includes institutions such as prisons and hospitals - Torture and kill animals and pets, sometimes leaving them on the doorstep of the target - never stop harassing the target in almost every case. Harassment often continues through painful illnesses and right up to the death of the target. The systematic corruption of government and quiet destruction of Constitutional freedoms by these groups has allowed organized stalking to spread and grow, particularly starting in the 1990s.

Directed Energy Weapons (DEW's) Most people have never heard the term Technological Predator. The term carries a connotation of paranoia or something from science fiction. However, in a declassified report from the U.S. Army, confirmed what TI's have known for years: that the government has and does use weapons that manipulate sound and energy to target the nervous systems of individuals, torturing them and producing internal injuries. Research from Uncensored confirms that "New technological capabilities have been developed in black budget projects over the last few decades-- including the ability to influence human emotion, disrupt thought, and present excruciating pain through the manipulation of magnetic fields. The US military and intelligence agencies have at their disposal frightful new weapons, that have likely already been covertly used and/or tested on humans, both here and abroad, and which could be directed against the public in the event of mass protests or civil disturbance. " Until recently, people who believe the government is beaming voices into their heads would have added social isolation to their catalog of woes. But now, many have discovered hundreds, possibly thousands, of others just like them all over the world. Web sites dedicated to electronic harassment and gang stalking have popped up in India, China, Japan, South Korea, the United Kingdom, Russia and elsewhere. Victims have begun to host support meetings in major cities, including Washington. Favorite topics at the meetings include lessons on how to build shields (the proverbial tinfoil hats), media and PR training, and possible legal strategies for outlawing mind control. The biggest hurdle for TIs is getting people to take their concerns seriously. A proposal made in 2001 by Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) to ban "psychotronic weapons" (another common term for mind-control technology) was hailed by TIs as a great step forward. But the bill was widely derided by bloggers and columnists and quickly dropped. Doug Gordon, Kucinich's spokesman, would not discuss mind control other than to say the proposal was part of broader legislation outlawing weapons in space. The bill was later reintroduced, minus the mind control. "It was not the concentration of the legislation, which is why it was tightened up and redrafted," was all Gordon would say. FFCHS stands in the canyon-sized gap between the suffering TI's face each day and public understanding of the issue; moving beyond raising awareness of group stalking and DEW's to ensuring legislators and other officials charged with upholding the public's safety and best interest take action to eliminate the use of DEW's and impose criminal consequences for those who perpetuate group stalking campaigns.

Current Activities FFCHS is working with attorney Jonathan Wilson to represent them in combating covert harassment and surveillance. Attorney Wilson states, "Many citizens are desperate to be freed from the disturbing, intrusive and oppressive targeting." The group continues bringing awareness to local and state officials, Congress, the media, and the general public concerning the crimes of organized stalking and DEW torture. FFCHS is working tirelessly so that laws will be passed and other measures taken to free those entrapped in what is known as the "secret holocaust." FFCHS held a rally on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. [date] that drew the coverage of the Washington Post. The FFCHS web site includes extensive content on the problem of covert surveillance and harassment as well as some leads to the few possible solutions that now exist. The website, at http://freedomfchs.com/ also includes a group blog where TI's may post their experiences, and informative newsletters. The website also leads visitors to solace and support in its Saturday conference calls, message forums and support groups in various metropolitan areas, including the Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay area of California. The group also has a YouTube page and Google group and has developed a survey for potential TI's and to gather more information about the prevalence of the different forms of covert harassment and surveillance. Goals FFCHS is organizing to convince legislators to pass laws that prohibit covert surveillance and harassment. We are working toward this goal by setting up meetings with legislators around the nation. Meetings with congressional representatives in Ohio and Massachusetts have opened communication with lawmakers. In Ohio, Green Party-endorsed gubernatorial candidate Bob Fitrakis, a Columbus lawyer, journalist, political science professor and author, believes much of what the government is up to is deep undercover. He points to the military's Joint Vision for 2020 program which describes preparation for aggressive war and total dominance of air, land, sea, space and information. Along with the rally on the National Mall, FFCHS has had rallies in Akron, Ohio, and numerous small rallies, including a group who handed out fliers in Torrance, CA.

Ultimately, FFCHS seeks funding for more publicity, more travel to visit congressional representatives, the hiring of the director as a full time staffer to coordinate the organization's worldwide efforts, and most importantly to take all the necessary steps to eliminate covert harassment and surveillance from the lives of people around the world. Problem Statement Group/Gang Stalking The buzzing of your alarm awakens you. You raise your bedroom window blinds to look outside at what was forecast to be a beautiful, sunny day. At that moment, a car drives up and parks across the street. No one gets out. You're not an alarmist, but the same thing has happened at this precise time every day this month. Last night as you went to bed, you heard footsteps and saw shadowy figures running just outside your window. Yesterday you called the police on the strange cars, but the driver was gone by the time the police arrived. An exasperated detective obviously called from higher priorities to answer your request grudgingly took down your information and left his card. You dress and head to the kitchen for breakfast. A chair is pulled out from the table. Your spouse, who is already at work, is meticulous about pushing the chair in and generally keeping things in order. You grab and English muffin, halve it and stick the halves in the toaster. As you press down the entire toaster falls apart on the counter. Too hurried to fix it now and feeling your anxiety building from the strange happenings, you decide to grab coffee and a bagel from the shop down the road. You finish dressing and grab your briefcase from the front hall. You run out to the garage and press the button to open the garage door. It seems sluggish but you wonder if it's just because you're anxious and hurried. The car is still there across the street. It's hard to tell in this light but you think the driver is watching you. He's talking on a cell phone. You pull the car out from the garage. It's sluggish, too. After two stalling episodes on the freeway to work (where you cannot be sure but you think you see the same car seeming to pass you repeatedly, taking a nearby exit and re-entering the freeway to watch you until you get the car going again) you're late again. It's not so bad; if you grab the file and head down to the conference room you may make it before the meeting starts. The file was on your desk when you left last night. Now it's gone. Frantic, you cull through the accordion file in your briefcase and the file stand on your desk. You become increasingly anxious as you dig through drawers and tear apart your desk. Finally in the frenzy you find the file under the blotter calendar. How weird is that? Who would have put it under there?

You arrive late to the meeting and catch the evil eye of your supervisor. Two coworkers look you up and down then pass a note back and forth, stifling laughter. What is this junior high school? The rest of the meeting passes without incident but disappointingly, someone else is chosen for the project you had worked many long days to prepare for, and you know your supervisor and her supervisor were aware of your efforts. You're not upset, really, you'd just appreciate an explanation, and you're still hoping to maybe get a piece of the assignment, but you can't catch the eye of either one of them for the rest of the meeting and they are both away from their desks or on the phone the rest of the day. Exhausted, you head to your car at the end of the day. Frank, someone you've never been that friendly with, walks up next to you on the way to his car and says, Rough day, huh? He smiles and walks away. You shake your head, step into your car and start the ignition. You make it home and your spouse greets you with a grim look. You see your child and warily ask how everyone's day was today. Your child asks, What's racketeering? Your spouse says softly, There are rumors. What's going on? You peer out the window and a sedan is parked across the street again. It's six p.m., but a jackhammer starts up in the alley. Again. If this was one day in a hundred, believing a conspiracy was the cause would seem over the top, and friends and family would be justified in urging you to calm down. Imagine, though, if this day was every day for a week, a month, a year. You know something is happening. You're powerless to stop it. No one will listen to you. The incidents escalate. Your spouse becomes suspicious of you. Your workplace starts documenting your erratic behavior and decline in work quality. Social invitations slow. Your smiles to friends and neighbors are greeted with narrowed eyes. No matter how many times you take the car to the mechanic, it won't stay fixed. Your mother asks at Thanksgiving if you're in some kind of trouble. You're window shopping with the family at Christmas and it seems like the streets are full of people watching you. It's not just one person following you, though you believe you are being trailed, but one pair walking in front of you stops short causing you to trip. You see them later and one suddenly, for no apparent reason, shouts your child's name. Now that's a bad kid, the other says. That kid might have to go away for a while, they say, it might be better if that kid disappears. Your child has a common name, and someone might say the pair could have been talking about someone else. But your year has been full of far too many coincidences. You ask your mother to start picking your child up from school, right at the door, instead of taking the bus. The new year sees you fired from your job, dropped by friends, avoided by formerly friendly neighbors, in counseling with your spouse because of the increased tension at home, receiving frequent reports of your child's declining performance at school, and
7

suddenly you can't take it anymore. You loved your city, your neighborhood, your life, having your family close, but there's an opening for a job in your field 1,200 miles away. It's a cut in pay and responsibility from your previous position, but you email your resume anyway. You get the job. You take it. Even your spouse is looking forward to a new start, and your child has grown to hate school anyway. You move over the summer, pleased with how you're settling in to the new environment, and relieved to have regained your mental health before things really spiraled out of control. You have a spring in your step again as you get ready for work. You grab a coffee and head out the door. Your car is blocked in by a car with no driver in it. Your eyes travel to the unfamiliar car parked across the street. The driver seems to be watching you. You run for the bus stop down the street and as you get on the bus you see the same car parked on a side street. It's not over. This pervasive, ongoing harassment would be disturbing enough as a rare occurrence, but estimates show group stalking affects one in one hundred people, with major damage to career, reputation, relationships, finances, and mental and physical health. Because these stalking groups are very careful to trade off duties so no one person is seen near the same TI too often, it is very difficult for even concerned law enforcement to catch anyone, much less make any charges stick. In most cases, however, this is a moot point because law enforcement at best acknowledges the problem but sees no viable solution, and at worst is part of the problem, as often the stalking groups rally corrupt members of law enforcement to their ranks. Electronic Harassment and Torture TI's have reported to FFCHS the following symptoms, which we have evidence is caused by electronic harassment and torture: MIGRAINE HEADACHES / MUSCLE CRAMPS / CANCER HEART ATTACK / BRAIN EMBOLISM / PARTIAL BLINDNESS BLURRED AND DEGENERATION OF VISION / SLEEP DEPRIVATION UNCONTROLLABLE JERKING OF LIMBS / MICROWAVE BURNS NEUROLOGICAL DAMAGE / OVERWHELMING FATIGUE

RINGING IN THE EARS /UNCONTROLLED SEXUAL STIMULATION John Alexander, author of Psychic Warrior, and former scientist for the National Laboratory at Los Alamos, has this to say about bio-electric weapons: "There are weapons systems that operate on the power of the mind and whose lethal capacity has already been demonstrated...The psychotronic weapon would be silent, difficult to detect, and would require only a human operator as a power source." No longer a gleam in the Pentagon's eye, ray guns or radiofrequency (RF) weapons, to be exact officially have arrived. As troops are increasingly forced to serve as an ad hoc police force, nonlethal weapons have become a priority for the military. The Department of Defense is currently testing the Active Denial System (ADS), which fires pain-inducing beams of 95-GHz radio waves, for deployment on ground vehicles. (By comparison, microwave ovens operate at around 2.5 GHz.) The ADS heats a target's skin, producing a sensation similar to having a light bulb pressed against flesh. This surface heating doesn't actually burn the target, but is painful enough to force a retreat. While this may have much promise against military combatants, we have evidence that the government is using it against private citizens in the United States. While the military continues to investigate the safety of RF-based weapons, defense contractor Raytheon has released Silent Guardian, a stripped-down version of the ADS, marketed to law enforcement and security providers as well as to the military. Using a joystick and a targeting screen, operators can induce pain from over 250 yards away, as opposed to more than 500 yards with the ADS. Unlike its longer-ranged counterpart, Silent Guardian is available now. As futuristic and frightening as the ADS "pain ray" sounds, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research is funding an even more ambitious use of RF energy. Researchers at the University of Nevada are investigating the feasibility of a method that would immobilize targets without causing pain. Rather than heating the subject's skin, this approach would use microwaves at 0.75 to 6 GHz to affect skeletal muscle contractions, possibly by blocking the release of neuro-transmitters that carry signals to those muscles. But the Nevada team is quick to point out that the technology also could lead to new drugand scalpel-free medical tools. "We envision that RF-based strategies could be developed that would be noninvasive," says one researcher, "and could help individuals with neurological disorders, neuromuscular disorders and chronic pain."

This project is still in the beginning stages, and has yet to attempt to stun even a mouse. The ADS, on the other hand, is already a painful reality. Members of FFCHS believe we are covert victims of such crimes as Voice to Skull transmissions (v2K), mind reading and thought surveillance technology, (and we can produce the documents to show that this technology exists and is in use today - and has been for some time), remote body manipulation, remote pain induction and much more. We believe the source of the crimes are certain elements of the government, corporations, and sometimes private citizens. Mind control and surveillance technology research has been studied by our government since the early '50s. And from what we've seen and experienced, it is pretty much perfected at this time. Much evidence and research exists to support our very real experiences: Research from Project Censored substantiates that, New technological capabilities have been developed in black budget projects over the last few decades-- including the ability to influence human emotion, disrupt thought, and present excruciating pain through the manipulation of magnetic fields. The US military and intelligence agencies have at their disposal frightful new weapons, that have likely already been covertly used and/or tested on humans, both here and abroad, and which could be directed against the public in the event of mass protests or civil disturbance. The Institute of Science in Society states this: electromagnetic weapons operate at the speed of light; they can kill, torture and enslave; but the public are largely unaware that they exist, because these weapons operate by stealth and leave no physical evidence. Electromagnetic weapons have been tested on human beings since 1976. By widely dispersing the involuntary human test-subjects, and vehemently attacking their credibility, it has been possible for the United States to proceed with these human experiments unhindered by discussions or criticisms, let alone opposition. While voices and visions, daydreams and nightmares are the most astonishing manifestations of this weapon system, it is also capable of crippling the human subject by limiting his/her normal range of movement, causing acute pain the equivalent of major organ failure or even death, and interfering with normal functioning of any of the human senses. In other words, any of the tortures with which the words Guantanamo Bay have become synonymous can be achieved by remote, electronic means. Gloria Naylor, a renowned African American writer, seems to defy many of the stereotypes of someone who believes in mind control. A winner of the National Book Award, Naylor is best known for her acclaimed novel, The Women of Brewster Place, which described a group of women living in a poor urban neighborhood and was later
10

made into a miniseries by Oprah Winfrey. But in 2005, she published a lesser-known work, 1996, a semi-autobiographical book describing her experience as a TI. "I didn't want to tell this story. It's going to take courage. Perhaps more courage than I possess, but they've left me no alternatives," Naylor writes at the beginning of her book. "I am in a battle for my mind. If I stop now, they'll have won, and I will lose myself." "I would lie in bed while the conversations were going on, and I'd ask: Maybe it is schizophrenia?" Naylor describes what she calls "street theater" -- incidents that might be dismissed by others as coincidental, but which Naylor believes were set up. She noticed suspicious cars driving by her isolated vacation home. On an airplane, fellow passengers mimicked her every movement -- like mimes on a street. Voices followed -- taunting voices cursing her, telling her she was stupid, that she couldn't write. Expletive-laced language filled her head. Naylor sought help from a psychiatrist and received a prescription for an antipsychotic drug. But the medication failed to stop the voices, she says, which only added to her conviction that the harassment was real. For almost four years, Naylor says, the voices prevented her from writing. In 2000, she says, around the time she discovered the mind-control forums, the voices stopped and the surveillance tapered off. It was then that she began writing 1996 as a "catharsis." Colleagues urged Naylor not to publish the book, saying she would destroy her reputation. But she did publish, albeit with a small publishing house. The book was embraced by Tis. Naylor, who hasn't written a book since 1996, is now back at work on an historical novel she hopes will return her to the literary mainstream. She remains convinced that she was targeted by mind control. The many echoes of her ordeal she sees on the mind-control forums reassure her she's not crazy, she says. Of course, some of the things she sees on the forum do strike her as crazy. "But who I am to say?" she says. "Maybe I sound crazy to somebody else." The general outlook for TIs is bleak; many lose their jobs, houses and family. Depression is common. But for many at the rally, experiencing the community of mind-control victims seems to help. One TI, a man who had been a rescue swimmer in the Coast Guard before voices in his head sent him on a downward spiral, expressed the solace he found among fellow TIs in a long e-mail to another TI: I think that the only people that can help are people going through the same thing. Everyone else will not believe you, or
11

they are possibly involved. In the end, though, nothing could help him enough. In August 2006, he would commit suicide. Nich Begich is executive director of the Lay Institute for Technology, founded by the heiress to the Lay potato chip fortune to ferret out the truth behind government secrecy. He compiles evidence from patents, mainstream media articles and government disclosures. His sources are legit. Trade journal Defense News, as well as Newsweek and U.S. News & World Report, have reported on emerging technologies like directed energy and acoustic weaponry. Generals have gathered for conferences on directed-energy weaponry and other exotic technologies. Patents have been awarded for sound-throwing devices and microwave conductors that allegedly can alter states of being. Begich says sound-transfer equipment is already developed. In the late '90s, he showed the European Parliament how it's done. He also presented his case about weather manipulation technology as well as non-lethal microwave and electromagnetic weapons, which he says could be developed to cause not just burning sensations in targets but also lethargy or even death. In 1999, the parliament passed a resolution calling for an international ban on weapons that would enable the manipulation of the human brain. Our intention is to look for ways to address problems with advancing technologies at least through disclosure and education, he says. A lot of this knowledge holds keys to human physiology. We could develop that technology, for instance, for the deaf [or] in other ways much more productive than what it's being used for now. But to do it safely and responsibly, you have to open the door. Purpose and Objectives FFCHS will continue to seek the support of congressional representatives. Awareness of this cause and a call for accountability from government officials will come only from strong action. For this reason we are, with the help of attorney Jonathan Wilson, writing letters to government agencies, including the Senate Judiciary Committee, and eventually commencing a lawsuit against the United States Government demanding redress for the ruined careers, health and lives caused by unjust, covert harassment and surveillance. FFCHS will launch a mail campaign, expand its website, and work with a media company to develop a compelling public service announcement about covert harassment and surveillance. Through calling for accountability from the government, testifying before Congress, and
12

raising public awareness of this issue so we have strength in constituent numbers to demand accountability and redress, we will achieve our goal of stopping the government and other entities from targeting private citizens for these invasions of privacy and operations of torture. Strategies Commencing a federal lawsuit against authorities who use gang stalking and electronic harassment against private citizens Outreach through the website, television PSA's, and other media to reach TI's and create strength in numbers Information sharing organized stalkers share information on us we will share information on them. Support and sharing of resources devices are available to counteract the effects of electromagnetic torture but they are very expensive. By sharing expenses we can help each other reduce the physical effects of remote torture. Calling for accountability removing the shroud of anonymity perpetrators currently enjoy Working with receptive law enforcement professionals to develop methods of empowering TI's to defend themselves against gang stalking and electronic torture attacks.
