It's time to reveal those government secrets and rescue any aliens they are hiding! It won't be easy, but we surely can get enough social media attention to get more people involved and overpower the government defenses! Area raiders from all over the world are coming in continuous waves to not give the defending areas any break. You'll start off with some basic raiders, but as they sacrifice themselves for this cause they'll generate attract more media attention and generate Media Points (MP). With these, you will be able to attract more, better and stronger raiders coming in bigger and faster waves until there's enough of them to breach their defenses. After massive Wikipedia research our geek army has done, we've also found out that there is not just one area, but tons of them... the extent of just how big these conspiracies go is unknown, but I'm sure as you liberate their Areas you will see how big the rabbit hole goes!
