Several Bitcoin Wallets Installed At Cheshire Fair Thus Far

Local liberty activists are manning a bitcoin outreach booth at this year’s Cheshire Fair, going on through Sunday. Thus far several bitcoin wallets have been installed, already surpassing the three we had installed last year.  Many folks have asked questions and still more are open to accepting an informational flier about the awesome cryptocurrency.

If you’ve been wondering about bitcoin, drop in and see us at the fair!  We’ll get you hooked up with a free bitcoin wallet for your smartphone and if you want, you can try out the original Keene bitcoin vending machine!

For the second year, the booth is featuring the original Keene Bitcoin Vending Machine. (The other, improved BVM is still at 101 Deals Thrift Store.) We’ll have the usual propaganda on hand from Copblock, the Foundation for NH Independence, NH Jury, and Shire Society. You can also declare your independence by signing the Shire Society Declaration and take it home to keep.

Hallowkeene 2015 Announced at Final Buzz’s Big Gay Dance Party

HALLOWKEENE

Hallowkeene 2014

It’s BAAAAACK! This past weekend on-stage at Buzz’s Big Gay Dance Party, Derrick J and Ian Freeman announced Hallowkeene as a spiritual successor to Buzz’s party which ended this year in an amazing, awesome finale on Friday night at Porcfest.

Last year was Hallowkeene‘s first, experimental year. We had dozens attend! It was a blast, raising more than $500 for Silk Road founder Ross Ulbricht’s defense fund.

This year’s event promises to be even better, with a new venue, running later, until 1:30am. Attendance will be restricted to Keenevention attendees and their guest. Tickets for Keenevention are just $50 for the whole weekend, but go up to $60 or BTC in July (tomorrow), so lock in your earlybird price now!

Rich Paul Addresses the Concord 420 in 2014

For the sixth consecutive year, activists will be taking to the State House lawn today, Monday, April 20th at 4:20pm to demand the repeal of the continued war on cannabis consumers. Some will likely engage in civil disobedience. Despite roadblocks put up by NH governor Maggie Hassan, we hope that this will be the year that we win more liberty for our people. Please join us today at the State House lawn at 4:20pm!

Here’s a facebook event with 150 confirmed attending. Come on out, rain (likely) or shine!

URGENT: Sign the Petition to Stop the Parking Meter Increase

Parking FailA downtown business owner has started an online petition in the hopes of stopping the new proposed parking rate and fine increases from the city. It will be delivered to the city council and it says:

Downtown merchants and their customers are already paying enough! We are forcing our community to shop at the BIG BOX stores and dine out with their families at CHAIN restaurants because they offer FREE parking. Some view this increase as a segway to pay for a new parking garage but even after it is built the cost will stay the same to park downtown. The folks who live in the apartments above the storefronts need to park out front to unload groceries, carry in and out their laundry or simply to run up to their apartment to just grab something quickly and have to pay a meter to do the simplest chore. Our diners complain constantly and often have to run out in between their meal and shopping to put more money in the meters. Customers of the local stores are often complaining because they cost so much already and if not paid quickly the fine increases dramatically. Please sign below so I can personally deliver this petition to the City and show them that we are against this increase.

You can sign the petition online now and don’t forget the city council’s FOP committee is meeting tonight on the matter at 6:30pm.
