Shield Mutual re-launches today with a different twist. It’s still the same mutual aid society concept but now with a focus on defending those most at risk for persecution due to political crimes, such as the truth-tellers, agorists (revolutionary counter-economic entrepreneurs), activists, hacktivists, civil disobedients, pirates, photographers, tax resisters, hunger-strikers, question-askers, conscientious objectors, no-knock raid survivors, etc.
For a small, annual fee you get unlimited advocacy, leadership and commitment using our proven formula for public relations success. “The price of justice is eternal publicity,” said 20th century propagandist Arnold Bennett. That’s exactly what we provide.
When governments attack, we spring into action – but only in accordance with your instructions. We produce a range of media from websites and flyers to social media and press releases. We get the word out and then we organize solidarity actions such as call floods. Our laser focus is to get you what you need to thrive and overcome, despite the attack.
We’ve gotten some surprising results for our customers already, such as 1 million YouTube views, a plane ticket home, protection from arrest, mainstream media attention and a whole lot more.
In order for our dual power, direct action and agorist initiatives to meet with success – in order for us to have freedom – we need protection from state oppression. Lawyers can only do so much and they’re expensive. But Shield Mutual leverages the mightier power of the pen on your behalf, and perhaps in your darkest moment, to not only get you the relief you need but also to inspire others to follow in your footsteps.
As our power grows, we can nullify political crime prosecution in the United States. Through the use of identifying apparel and a hefty public relations footprint, police, marshals, judges and bureaucrats will come to know who we are. They will respect Shield Mutual and allied organizations. We will eventually earn preferential treatment and open spaces for self-determination and the agorist counter-economy to flourish.

Security is important, but our model leverages openness for greater impact. We want people to know we exist. That said, you can protect yourself by using a fake name and anonymous email address when signing up, sending us only encrypted email and paying with Bitcoin. Plus, we’re currently located outside the official legal jurisdiction of the United States.
