Subject: [Caspian-newsletter-l] Katherine in Detroit this week to discuss RFID and Spychipped ID Cards
I am headed to Detroit this week to speak on RFID, freedom, and Big Brother issues. I will be speaking at several events that are free and open to the public, courtesy of my friends at Peacemakers International Ministries. If you are in the area, I'd love to meet you!
As you may know, Michigan is one of several states that has agreed to issue Homeland Security's new, voluntary "enhanced driver's license" to facilitate border crossings. That means that many Michigan drivers may soon be lured by "convenience" into carrying our worst nightmare --uniquely numbered, remotely-readable RFID spychips. Most participating drivers will have no idea that their new ID cards can be used to track them right through a wallet, pocket, or purse, without their knowledge, from more than 20 feet away.
I've posted my schedule below. If you are in Michigan, this will be a great opportunity to get informed and meet fellow freedom-lovers. All events are free, and you are welcome to bring as many people as you would like. (A quick RSVP would be appreciated, but is not required.)
THURSDAY, MAY 8, 7:00 PM
RFID PRESENTATION, Q&A SESSION, AND BOOK/DVD SIGNING
LOCATION: Peacemakers International Fellowship Church
Katherine will deliver a 1-hour, image-rich, up-to-the-minute presentation on RFID: What it is, how it works, plans for abuse, and why this issue matters to Michigan. The talk will be followed by a question and answer session and a book signing. Get your questions answered and get a signed copy of Spychips or one of Katherine's DVDs while you're
This is a secular (non-religious) event.

On Sunday morning, Peacemakers' Pastor Steve Upshur has graciously allotted me an hour to speak on prophesy, advancing technology, and the church. The worship service begins at 11:00, and I will speak shortly thereafter. We'd love to have you join us!
Note: Although many of the events have a Christian theme, people from all faith traditions are warmly invited to attend.
Peacemakers works with inner city drug addicts and gang members, and helps them turn blighted urban lots into vibrant, green gardening projects. Lean more here:
