This event was covered on the front page of the April 20, 1994 Washington Times, one of the major newspapers of the area (page 1, continued to page 11).
In May of 1994, Carol began planning the next year's event in the same location. On May 19, 1994, she obtained a permit from the Washington DC metropolitan police (faxed authorizing permit and fax cover sheet from DC police).
The April 19, 1995 event was called "A Day of Focus on US Government Domestic Terrorism." Carol invited a representative group of speakers from across the political spectrum. Two of the promotional fliers produced for the event can be seen at Promo 1 and Promo 2. Waco Remembrance also announced the event in The Washington Times.
April 19, 1995, of course, saw the bombing of the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City, and the joint attempt by government and news services to discredit all persons of conscience who protested the Waco Holocaust.
The organization and presentation of the 1995 event was disrupted by 1960s-style COINTELPRO attacks. The US government and news services orchestrated a massive campaign to position the Waco protesters as "domestic terrorists," and even suggested it was they who were responsible for the bombing. (Note the Orwellian co-opting of the term that was coined by Waco Remembrance to describe the government program).
As a result, Carol decided not to continue the street corner protest venue.
Thus was born the Waco Holocaust Electronic Museum. It was established on the April 19, 1996, the third anniversary of the inferno of the Mt. Carmel Center.

Many people who distrust the mainstream media have turned to alternate news sources, some of which are Internet based. Unfortunately, many of these alternate sources of news simply promote an alternate series of lies. These alternate lies are of course dressed up as "exposés." But you can easily tell the phonies from the real thing. The information in the Waco Holocaust Electronic Museum is an acid test.
Does your news source promote Mike McNulty's video, Waco: The Rules of Engagement or wring its hands because the Davidian law suit against the government failed? (See Waco Documentary Is A Hoax! and Waco Suits for Waco Suckers.) Does your alternate news source carry promotional pieces about rebuilding the Davidian church in Waco and mouth nice words about "healing"? (See The Cover-up Church.)
Remember, since ancient times, inquiries into questionable deaths have started with the bodies of the victims. If your news source won't give you an honest and full account of the forensic information on Waco, or if it does not have a link to the Waco Holocaust Electronic Museum ... your alternate news has failed a fundamental acid test.
