Some Sentinel reporters also sit down and discuss the story in this video:
The NH Liberty Party announces the creation of the Keene Liberty Alliance! The Keene Liberty Alliance is intended to facilitate political action in Keene among liberty-oriented individuals. Such action includes fielding candidates, speaking at city meetings, petitioning, and other inside-the-system activism.
For years we have had the Keene Liberty Activist Calendar linked here in the top menu bar, and that continues to be a great source to discover some of the goings-on here in the Keene area. Now, I’m excited to announce that there is a larger calendar covering all of NH available now at calendar.shiresociety.com – it’s called the “NH Liberty Central Calendar“. Be sure to check it out to see what is happening statewide – keep in mind, that like the Free Keene calendar, the calendars only show a portion of everything that is actually happening. To learn more of what’s going on, you’ll need to move here and get plugged into the community.
The first-ever Keenevention kicks off next Friday November 1st at 9am! Thus far, nearly 90 liberty-loving people are registered to attend the event! That includes dozens of speakers, panelists, and others buying tickets and visiting from all over the country. Keenevention promises to be an experimental, intimate convention. It’s the convention by activists, for activists and those who would like to be activists. Keenevention is unusual because all of our speakers are based in the Shire. These are the people who are here creating the most exciting and attractive liberty movement in the world. They may not all be “names” in the liberty movement, but they should be. These are doers.
Keenevention’s dozen panels cover the full activism spectrum! From legislators to civil disobedients to media producers to tech-geeks, Keenevention will address it all. Our keynote speakers include the President of the Free State Project, Carla Gericke speaking on the “State of the FSP”, JJ Schlessinger of “Free State Now“, and former Cheshire county jail guard Bryan Tann.
Of course, since it’s Keene, you might want to actually do some activism while you’re in town, so you’ll be able to hit the streets with Robin Hood, Keene Cop Block, visit and protest at the jail where Rich Paul is being held captive, as well as attend favorite Keene social events! Get a full list of activities outside-the-hotel here.
Online ticket registrations are open (and still just $50) through Thursday at noon Eastern. After that, you will have to buy your tickets at the door of the event and the price then will be $60. Alternately you can buy a one day pass in advance or at-the-door for $25. Don’t wait – lock in your tickets now!
This Wednesday night at Keene city hall, 2nd floor, it will be a drug war showdown! The advocates for a brand new prohibition will be present to support the proposed illegal ordinance against all synthetic drugs. The ordinance has been written, and it is horrible (it starts on pg 61 of this PDF).
MSFI committee @ 6pm will be hearing the proposed prohibition on all synthetic drugs – please come speak against this awful idea.
PLD committee @ 7pm will be hearing David Crawford’s proposal to have the council write a letter to the legislature encouraging legalization. They will also hear my proposal to repeal the paraphernalia ordinance.
You can speak on all of these issues – please come out and support ending the insane war on drugs! Here is a facebook event for the meetings.
Want to help Rich Paul with his legal defense fundraiser? Thanks to Shiny Badges, you can now bid on Cop Block badge number 420! These beautiful badges are selling like hotcakes and are individually numbered, so there will only be one badge #420.

Free Keene bloggers including myself, Daryl, and Pete as well as other liberty activists from the area will be heading up the Shire Society tent at the 75th annual Cheshire Fair, going on all weekend!
If you’ll be at the fair this Wed-Sun, stop by and say hello!
As the Free State Project continues to move activists to NH and those activists become more effective, more people worldwide will notice the amazing activism happening here and will want to be a part of it. Now, Youtube vlogger Amanda Billyrock has signed the pledge, showing how easy it is. She plans to arrive in Manchester in two weeks! You can join the FSP here. If you want liberty to have a chance, we need to concentrate our activism in one place. See you in the Shire!
