Keene Sends Message to Thugs: “Keep it Up!”

Published by:

The following is Rich Paul’s letter to the Keene City Council, as recorded and transcribed by Derrick J Freeman:

When two groups of bullies attacked artists on consecutive days on The Common this month, the Keene City Government sent them a firm message: “Keep it up! We have your back.” How else can we interpret the facts?

In the first attack, four men, all of whom are employed by the Pour House or Pedraza’s, attacked my friend Andy from behind. I dropped my camera and phone, picked up the camera monopod, and drove three of them off. One Pour House employee was able to steal my camera and phone but serious violence was averted.

The City’s response was swift and sure: they arrested me two days later for being a felon in possession of a stick. They have not taken any action against the rioters and thieves. The video of this incident can be found on YouTube, and the thief, first name Terry, bragged of his theft (of the camera) on Twitter.

In the second incident, nobody was fast enough to protect the artist from serious harm, and therefore no arrests have been made. However, City Councilor Filiault is still willing to take the bold step of protecting violent thugs against offensive smiley faces and peace signs by outlawing sidewalk art. His message to bullies: “Hurt people, and we’ll give people what they want.” Perhaps a better solution would be to hold Dorrie O’Meara, who employs all 5 of the attackers, accountable for what her employees do while on the clock.

But then who would protect the bullies?

State of NH Convicts Man for Speaking to Bureaucrat

Published by:

Monday, June 16th 2014 – 10am – Today there was a trial in Keene at the new courthouse. “The State of New Hampshire” charged political activist Graham Colson with “Contempt of Court” for speaking to a Meter Maid while doing his activism.

The activism, called “Robin Hooding”, involves walking around feeding the expired parking meters. He says it saves people from tickets.

But Meter Maid Alan Givetz had a big problem with the Robin Hooders. So much of a problem that he quit over the situation. He called the police on Graham for speaking to him, and the court defended the unconstitutional ban on free speech.

Graham was represented by friend and fellow Robin Hood activist Garret Ean. Ean blogs at and also runs his own blog at

Graham was sentenced to 60 days in jail, plus 5 months “suspended” for 2 years. That means he has to go to jail for about 2 months, but the other 5 months he doesn’t have to spend in jail (so long as he doesn’t get arrested for the next 2 years). All of this for speaking to a member of the badged class?

Article 10 of the New Hampshire Constitution reads, “[Right of Revolution.] Government being instituted for the common benefit, protection, and security, of the whole community, and not for the private interest or emolument of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, whenever the ends of government are perverted, and public liberty manifestly endangered, and all other means of redress are ineffectual, the people may, and of right ought to reform the old, or establish a new government. The doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.”

These activists are engaging in peaceful resistance to the state. And they need your support. Reinforce these gutsy activists by moving to the Shire! Learn more at

Free Rich Paul Sign Wave at the Jail

Published by:

Hero Rich Paul is behind bars again! He is currently wearing orange and being held in D-Block. (That’s where they keep prisoners who haven’t yet been sentenced.) He can accept visitors, but not phone calls. The best way to write to him is using a free service called He might be in there for a while, so please write him often, as it is his only connection to the outside world.

Except one. The Jail Sign-Wave is an activism event where people bring banners, posters, and flags outside the jail, and they wave up at the prisoners caged inside. Word quickly spreads around the cell block, and soon everyone is at their windows waving back. Many of them will never have a single visitor for months or years. There’s a reason they come to the windows and wave every week. Humans need connection.

Though Rich’s jail cell doesn’t have a window facing the street (his faces a brick wall), the other inmates in the cell block tell him what the signs say and describe the people holding them so he can know who’s out there supporting him.

It gives him the opportunity to be “Man of the Hour” once a week. All the other inmates want to know why there’s a group of people out there supporting one of the guys they’re in with. Rich explains each week, “I’m a political prisoner pushing to end the drug war.” It gives him a soapbox, and the others listen. “What does ‘No Victim, No Crime’ mean?” one inmate asks. And as Rich indulges the other inmates, his words can’t escape the ears of equally curious jail guards. They quietly eavesdrop as they’re confronted with the startling proclamation that they’re guarding a bunch of victims: peaceful people made criminals by an act of tyrannical politicians. The realization can be so startling for some that they’ve quit their jobs working for the State.

Do you love to watch the activist videos you see at Did you know that there are two “raw” channels where you can find all the uncut versions of the footage–before they hit the editing room floor. Garret Ean and I upload all of our footage to YouTube daily, whether it gets used or not. If you’re a skeptic, this is a great way to call out the activists for what you believe they’ve edited out. Dig in! Here’s just a taste of what you’ve been missing:
