Support the Foundation with Bitcoin: 1Et9XjbPiBBhX8i2VQJ7BDTJQPbkGjHRJc

The livestream will be from 3:00 to 4:20pm EST.

Activists gather at the statehouse in Concord, New Hampshire. They convene annually to protest cannabis prohibition. This year’s rally is the first to be hosted by the 420 Foundation‘s new Executive Director, Shire Dude. Hey, that’s me!

To promote the event, I personally invited Chief Nick Willard of the Manchester Police Department. I have yet to receive his RSVP.

This is a live event. If the video below is not live, you can access archived footage on my Bambuser account.

After the 420 rally, check the livestream again, at about 10:00pm. The Manchester Police Department has announced a checkpoint. If there is one, I intend to broadcast the response from Manchester activists.

Manchester Drivers Mobilize With Cell 411

Yesterday, I needed a ride.  Looking to test Cell 411’s new “ride hailing” feature, I requested a ride across town, expecting to sit on my hands for the next two hours.

(Free Keene has already reported about the Cell 411 app, as well as the app’s new ride hailing feature.  If you are unfamiliar with Cell 411, check out this video.)cell-411-ride

I set the request radius to 15 miles.  According to the app, there were 100 drivers within 15 miles.

Within a couple minutes, I received a driver’s offer.  It’s a reasonable price, but I don’t immediately accept it.

A minute after that, my neighbor (who lives in my building, across the hallway) undercut that price by $1.

A couple minutes after that, my friend sent a Facebook message: His girlfriend saw my request.  She’s not available to drive, but he is.  Even though he hadn’t set up the app, he became part of Cell 411’s ride hailing experiment.  I got the ride, paid my friend and I even tipped him with a double almond milk latte.

Have you tried hailing a ride with Cell 411 in your area?  You may be surprised with the results.

Fundraiser Launched for Manchester Shooting Victim

At 2:20 in the morning on November 5th, 2016 Jarrod Ean-Dixon was shot four times

in his abdomen, at close range.

The shooting occurred in Manchester NH as the result of an argument that started over a flag. Offended by the porcupine used on the Free State Project‘s flag, the gunman became aggressive both verbally and physically until ultimately he drew a gun and pulled the trigger four times.

Being an active member of the liberty community, Jarrod has earned the love and respect of many activists in and around Manchester, New Hampshire.  His close friends have started collecting funds for his rising medical bills and day-to-day costs.  Jarrod will be unable to work while he heals, and he is the father of three children.

In just 5 hours, the community has raised nearly $2,000, which includes over $300 in bitcoin donations.  Activists are also purchasing clothing and other items with the porcupine flag’s image on them, in order to raise funds and to show solidarity with Jarrod.  We still have a long way to go in making Jarrod whole.

More information and updates are available at HelpJarrod.com.  Please consider donating.
