Over the first two days of this week, Rights Brigade activists conducted operations unprecedented in number and scope.

On Monday, August 3rd, five different teams of activists conducted jury nullification outreach operations in five different cities simultaneously: Nashua, Manchester, Concord, Laconia, and Brentwood. Activists handed pamphlets to prospective jurors regarding their right to nullify bad laws.

Tuesday, August 4th, jury rights activists conducted an outreach operation in Dover. Later that day, a team of activists traveled to Hampton to attend a presentation by Granite State Progress at the Hampton Democrats’ monthly meeting regarding the Free State Project. Activists represented themselves as individual Free State Project participants, and showcased the diversity, humanity, and respectful open dialogue that are hallmarks of the community.

Among the activists present during these operations were Patrick Wienckowski, Ashleigh Henton, Randy Clemens, Ellen Blanchard, Don McCollough, Rep. Michael Sylvia, Joël Valenzuela, Kyle Mohney, James Davis, Marcus and Sarah Chamberlain, Denis Goddard, and Nelson Lourenço. All in all, 16 activists reached seven different locations in those two days: Laconia, Concord, Manchester, Nashua, Dover, Brentwood, and Hampton.

Though 16 total activists participated in these seven events, there were a total of 21 activist participation instances. The number disparity is because Ellen Blanchard, Don McCollough, Joël Valenzuela, Kyle Mohney, and Nelson Lourenço each participated in two different events.

This represents a new level of success in liberty activism. From coordinating activists across the state to carry out organized operations at five different locations simultaneously (first thing in the morning no less), to continuing that organizational success the next day to include a friendly outreach operation turning an overtly hostile environment into an amicable discussion forum, this week’s success can’t be emphasized enough. Even better, this was an all-volunteer operation featuring zero prior commitments or direct incentives to even show up. It was exclusively a labor of love from activists seeking to make their world better in meaningful ways. Volunteer activism on this scale and coordination is only possible thanks to the Free State Project and its success in bringing thousands of the most motivated liberty lovers the world over into one convenient spot.
