I was kicked out of Keene State College’s property (for which I am forced to pay) and threatened with a cage for having a sign at a political rally. The war on signs continues as the 1st amendment is ignored. Participants included Ian Freeman of FreeKeene.com, Jason Talley of Talley.TV, Kelly Voluntaryist, Nicholas Shankin (a new mover from Philadelphia), and me. Video to come soon. In the meantime, watch this video from last year featuring the Secret Service and the continuing war on signage.
Activists responded quickly this Saturday night when beloved freedom activist Cecelia Freechild was stopped by agents of the state. In their own words, she is their “victim.” Protect and serve…
Liberty activists hand out literature about self-ownership on the campus of Monadnock Regional High School. Principle Butterball doesn’t want to be filmed, but can’t help standing in front of the camera.
Rick Santorum came to Keene this Friday and was met by a group of carol-singing activists. He was asked if he Googled himself, he was serenaded, and he was made to feel unwelcome. Local liberty activists Ian Freeman, Beau Davis, and Derrick J. Freeman were “asked to leave” the event–Keene Police took it upon themselves to put their hands on these men, pushing them up the stairs because one of Santorum’s staffers said, “I want them out.”
Today I went to District Court in Keene for my arraignment for alleged parking violations. I was joined by 3 other activists contesting tickets who also had arraignment. Nemi Jones, Cecelia Freechild, and Kelly Voluntaryist. We were joined by cameramen and activists who came out to support us like Ian Freeman, Pete Eyre, Jason Rapsher, and David Crawford.
This morning at about 3am two men named Joshua English and Kyle Macie pulled up in front of my house bringing a barking german shepherd, made threats at my friends, and left.
Rapsher made a great video recently of some footage he took of the night I was pepper sprayed for having a dance party. For those of you who aren’t up to speed on that night, this will catch you up. Thanks, Rapsher!
I have court on January 18, 2011. I gave the persecutor a copy of my video evidence at the Keene Police Department today and also filed a motion to dismiss the charges based on the fact that there is no victim. I’ll be filing a motion for discovery tomorrow.
I will do my best to prepare a rock-solid defense. I expect to give the Judge and anyone within earshot no conceivable reason to find me guilty. That said, I expect to lose. I will then appeal to a trial by jury. That’s where I am placing my real hope for freedom–in my ever-loving peers, who will surely find no fault in my victimless crimes.
That reminds me to get more NH Jury fliers into the hands of more of the public.
