Citizens Against UFO Secrecy (CAUS) is a freedom of information activist group that advocates for the release of classified information regarding UFOs.
Citizens Against UFO Secrecy (CAUS) was formed in 1977 by W Tod Zechel, Brad Sparks, and Peter Gersten to advocate for the release of information regarding UFOs that has been classified by government organizations through the use of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The organization gained notoriety for the amount of Freedom of Information requests it has made, as well as the subsequent court cases that were a result of them. Since 1998, the organization has been headed by Peter Gersten.
CAUS is a non-profit organization which stands on the following principles
- It is against any and all secrecy relating to contact with all forms of extraterrestrial intelligence
- The public has the absolute and unconditional right to know about this contact.
As such, its goals are similar to Operation Right To Know.
Members of CAUS claim that we are "Being contacted, directly and indirectly by extraterrestrials, and will continue to be contacted at an ever increasing rate as we approach the galactic alignment," and that "we presently have the technology and resources to discover the truth about this extraterrestrial contact for ourselves and decipher these messages."
The organization was most active during the 70s and 80s, but presently does not show any activity.
