The New Sons of Freedom, abbreviated as NSF, was a small militant constitutionalist and secessionist organization operating in the United States around 2027, particularly strong in the Pacific Northwest states of the country. The organization is the predecessor of the Northwest Secessionist Forces formed in 2031 and later the National Secessionist Forces.[1]


Juan Lebedev founded the group because of dissatisfaction with the corruption in the United States government. According to Lebedev, the group is waiting for the day when they will be able to secede from the corrupt government running the country.[2]


The group has been able to fly under the radar of most intelligence agencies, thanks to its close ties and history with the cyberterrorist organization known as the Juggernaut Collective.[2]

The New Sons engages in activities aimed to fight the influence and control of the Illuminati. Examples include the bombing of the Capitol of the state of Washington in Olympia at the hands of Joshua Korbin, and the rescue mission of William Taggart of Humanity Front during a conference in Geneva, Switzerland. In the Switzerland mission, members of the New Sons were joined by Juggernaut members Ben Saxon and Anna Kelso.[3]


In 2029, the organization is being actively monitored by Task Force 29.[4][5]


The name of the organization may be a reference to the Sons of Liberty, an American patriot organization founded in 1766.
