April 10: National Day of Action against Fusion Centers


National Day of Action against Fusion Centers

April 10th is the National Day of Action against Fusion Centers. Protests, rallies, and teach-ins will take place in cities all over the country to draw attention to the spy centers in our midst. Fusion Centers facilitate the gathering, storing, and sharing of intelligence data that bares our lives and violate our basic human rights to privacy and civil liberties. There are an estimated 85 fusion centers all over the United States. For more information, read this Fusion Center FAQ by EFF.
