Join us at NH Hempfest, happening this weekend!

Darryl and I are running an outreach booth this weekend at NH Hempfest in Lancaster at Roger’s Campground.  We’re sharing the Shire Society declaration with attendees, along with plenty of know-your-rights propaganda, and a Bitcoin Vending Machine. We’ll be at the booth all day until Sunday and at night we’re hosting Free Talk Live.

Hempfest is packed with dozens of live bands and is kicking off right now.  Hope to see you!

NH Hempfest 2016 Day One

Another Small Victory for NHexit

I organized an NHexit event in Portsmouth this Friday called “NH Independence Celebration“. People from Keene, Manchester, Nashua, and Portsmouth attended. Dave Ridley of New Hampshire’s #2 YouTube channel shot video from a safe distance across the street. Shire Dude live-streamed video while making commentary and chatting with curious passers by. One person waved a blue flag with a peace sign. Another waved a yellow “Don’t Tread on Me” flag and a sign that read, “I LOVE AMERICA, NOT D.C.” Some conducted a 3-question poll about secession from a random sampling of Portsmouth’s downtown. Music by The Beatles played from a small portable speaker. In total the event was 1 hour.

Poll respondents were asked to read 3 short statements and rate their level of agreement or disagreement with each one. 17 people participated. The results are as follows (click image to enlarge):

NHexit Rally in Keene Covered on NH1

NHexit Rally in Keene, July 2016

Derrick J Wins Best Sign

Just about one week after a successful first rally for New Hampshire independence in Manchester, NHexit activists held another one for independence day in Keene. NH1’s Jennifer Currier came out and reported live from the scene for the 5:30 and 6:30 news. She also filed this excellent report. No video available online yet, but here’s the text:

KEENE – A handful of New Hampshire residents gathered outside the Post Office in Keene on Monday evening to show support for NHExit.

 

The movement started shortly after Britain broke ties with the European Union, in hopes that the Granite State would follow the example and secede from the United States.

 

“The goal is to pretty much send the message to the feds of we don’t like what you’re doing, knock it off, or we will try to leave,” said Darrel W. Perry, a member of the New Hampshire Liberty Party and one of the protestors. (more…)

Last week, an NHexit protest advocating NH declaring independence from the United States was announced for a federal building in Manchester, and last night it happened. Thanks to the Concord Monitor’s Leah Willingham for reporting from the event:

Less than a week after Great Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, a group of New Hampshire residents has decided it, too, wants out – of the United States.

 

“NHexit,” named after the Brexit, or “Britain Exit” campaign, is a new movement that now exists to represent those hoping New Hampshire will someday part ways with the Union and create its own republic.

 

At their first-ever event on Sunday night, 13 demonstrators gathered with signs displaying phrases like, “Get DC out of NH” and “New Hampshire Independence Now” in front of Manchester’s Norris Cotton Federal Building, a structure that NHexit founder and organizer Dave Ridley said he “would like to see turned into a shopping mall.” (more…)

LRN.FM Launches 2016 Satellite Fundraiser – Can you help?

Help LRN.FM Expand Satellite Coverage to Europe!

A few days ago, LRN.FM – The Liberty Radio Network kicked off its 2016 Satellite Fundraiser. This year we’re hoping to expand our international Free-to-Air satellite coverage to include Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. Our current satellite coverage includes North America, Central America, and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Last year, our first-ever fundraiser raised enough to keep our African satellite on-the-air. This year, the Indiegogo-based fundraiser is going to be promoted via a “headtalker” – a website that allows you to sign up to join in a social media blast to promote something. Sign up here via your preferred social media and then on Independence Day, July 4th the headtalker will post to your social media about our fundraiser. We’ve set a goal of 200 people – can you be one of them?

Obviously you can go donate to the fundraiser right now, but even if you can’t afford to help, you can definitely add your social media reach to the headtalker – so please do!

Now you can subscribe to Free Keene via email!
