Today April 10th, 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.
