“You guys aren’t what this city needs” – Anti-Robin Hood/Free Keene Protestor Jon Cole
This past Saturday, midday, a group with signs opposing Robin Hooding and Free Keene gathered on Central Square. Most of them were from the Facebook group, “Free Keene from Free Staters“. Of the group, Rob Way was the most approachable and was willing to have a conversation. You’ll see that conversation later on in the series of raw videos from the encounter. When I arrived on the scene, as you will see, Kay points her umbrella towards my camera and despite speaking to me, hides behind it and her sign for most of the scene. It’s all very silly. It also seems contradictory. If you are putting yourself out there on Central Square and holding a sign, you clearly want to get a message out, so why would you refuse to be videoed by someone holding a camera?
Here is the series of uncut, raw videos as shot by me, Garret, and James Cleaveland:
