“Safe House” Community Co-operative Proposal
Plan to start safe house.
We are seeking suggestions from members of the Targeted Individual (TI) community to begin the process of:
* starting a safe house community
* raising funding for a safe house community
* purchasing land for a safe house community
This is my idea and all suggestions will be welcome.
1. Formulate a meeting, which we will discuss the details of this project.
The project will encompass a business plan that will outline how money will be generated.
Option 1. 30 targeted individual will save at least $1,000 within a 12 month period. For instance, if you have $100 in your pocket by February 1st, you should have at least $1,000 by January of 2013.
Option 2. We will seek donations from interested parties that agree with our ideas. Donations is not grant making.
Option 3. Option 1 and 2 could be combine if goal could be narrow down to 9 months.
Option 4. A grant proposal could be develop to get seed money for the project. The project will be funded in stages until we meet our goal of raising enough money to purchase the land.
Option 5. Several TI’s could start businesses that could generate enough money to purchase the land.
Option 6. A single business can be created by several TI’s that could generate enough money to purchase the land.
I’m not too clear on how long Option 5 and 6 will take to generate the necessary funds to purchase land. Because of several risk involve, Option 1 is my overall preference. However, can we commit as much as 30 people to save around $100 a month for this project? Committing Individuals is one thing and getting them to agree on how this safe house project will run once it is up and running is another thing. That is the purpose of meeting, before we decide on the final project.
Once we have met our financial goal, we will then discuss the project 1. location 2. size 3. cost .
The final decision will be made by majority vote, but we will make some concessions.
Once a location has been found, we need to discuss what kind of construction will happen on the property. Several suggestions have already been made, but more ideas are needed.
The property must be big enough for 31 cabins. There must also be enough land for farming.
Option 1. Purchase one parcel of land.
Option 2. Purchase two parcel of land.
The idea of two parcels of land allows us to work with a much smaller crowd. It allows more land for farming use. Downside: The cost can be more than 1/3 than the latter.
Structure: Security, Alternative Energy, Community Duties, Transportation
* gps jammers
* water integration
* solar panels
* wind turbines
Chores will be assigned to at least two persons per day. Chores will include organic farming, but it would be the upkeep of the property. Exactly how this will be needs further discussion.
This is very important. We need at least two vehicles to assist individuals to and from their destination. Gas and maintenance cost will have to be discuss later. Vehicle used for hauling produce will be part of the equation.
As you can see, this can work.
This is a fast proposal. I just want to get the torch burning. But it can happen next year if we are committed.
I like to add that AFFIDAVITS development is an absolute necessary to reduce infiltrators from setting us back.

PS: The project will be run by 1) Kelb (if it mission statement allows it), 2) a newly formed non-profit 3) a co-operative structure (this model allows us to lobby as a group for stronger legislation protecting whistle-blowers, victims of electronic harassment and human experimentation), 4) An LLC or Company business structure and 5) A coalition such as TICSD.
I’m going to go with #3. It offers flexibility. The downside: we can’t grant make, but we can seek donations. Donations can come in the form of membership (501 C4). Another topic.
