JEKYLL ISLAND, GA – An unprecedented gathering of the nation’s Freedom Movement leaders was held at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel on May 21st and May 22nd. The planning meetings, coined the “Jekyll Island Project,” were hosted by We The People Foundation for Constitutional Education, Inc., chaired by Bob Schulz.
A highlight of the gathering was a special ceremony held in the Federal Reserve Room at the Club, specifically to establish a “righteous record” in the place of the secretive deliberations which occurred there in 1910 to conceive the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.
Beyond the timely relevance of such an effort, the two day meeting focused on gaining input about, and support for, the concept of convening a modern day Continental Congress “to document The People’s record of our Constitutional crisis and develop a viable, cohesive set of peaceful activist strategies to cure the cancer of despotism that now threatens the nation.”
Twenty-five leaders articulated the long list of Constitutional violations currently under way to collapse the Republic, through well-documented information provided by each representative organization, along with action plans to confront the violations. Unconstitutional threats of increasing concern to the American people included RFID technology, transportation choke points, illegal surveillance, undeclared wars, labor taxes, international treaties, individual and state sovereignty, election fraud, unsound money, firearms legislation, sustainable development and the new world order agenda.
Leaders agreed that the time has come for a united front in defense of the Constitution, acknowledging the challenges that have historically prevented the Freedom Movement from coming together and achieving mass support. First on the agenda for joint cooperation will be the 2009 Continental Congress, which received unanimous approval and pledges to create awareness, share resources and promote participation across all fifty states and the District of Columbia.
