From: Gary Hunt at the Outpost of Freedom in Waco, Texas
Date: APRIL 3, 1993
Today, in Waco, about two hundred people appeared as the unarmed militia to show support for the Branch Davidians and David Koresh. The initially assembled at the 340 Loop and FM 2491, which is the main checkpoint and the only access to the media center (Satellite City). About 12:30 PM an exodus to a dirt road near Elk, which is about 2 miles east of the Church complex, resulted in over one hundred people who eventually strung themselves out over nearly a mile and caused, perhaps, 60 BATF, FBI, Sheriff"s Deputies, State Troopers, Texas Rangers and even Waco police to maintain a barrier of armed manpower against the unarmed peace and justice seekers. There would have been more peace seekers had the State Troopers not barricaded the road in to the area in which this effort was made. Many were turned back, but the: event was, perhaps, the most demonstrative of the feelings of many that we have seen to date.
Attached to this release is an agreement. I had hoped that David Koresh would be able to execute this on his own behalf, however the FBI has refused me access to him since March 9, when he first assigned the Power of Attorney and requested that I be allowed to enter the complex to meet with him.
The agreement is the first part of a two part solution to the Waco siege. The FBI continues to deny me access to Mr. Koresh. Therefore, the second part to the peaceful solution will have to wait until the FBI realizes that until somebody who understands life the way David does will be able to communicate with him, and, that the FBI, in their dictatorial and arbitrary manner, will never accomplish the task by peaceful means (perhaps they don"t want that).
I hope that all recipients of the attached agreement will provide support by fax transmission to APFN at (702) 369-8101) as soon as possible. Daily retransmission will be made to appropriate authorities to indicate the will of the people in this matter.
If there are any that feel that the agreement, as presented, is not fair to all parties, we would appreciate your comments via the same route.
The BATF is coming under attack in Washington for the administration of this debacle. Perhaps this armed tax collection agency has created its own demise. We can only hope that this is the beginning of a reformation to the noble experiment that was begun 217 years ago. When this mess at Waco is over we must not just sit back complacently and assume that we can let our guard down. There is more to be done, but, the task is begun, and will continue until those original Freedoms and Liberties are again our birthright.
