Rights Brigade conducts 7 operations in 2 days

wpid-wp-1438748329880.jpg

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.

The recent spate of Justice activism focused on juror outreach caught the interest of local western New Hampshire activism publication Free Keene.

The article touts the Rights Brigade’s successes, quote: “Where else in the world are people mobilizing on this scale, with this efficiency for the cause of liberty? Where else can defendants in an entire state reasonably suspect that the jurors sitting on their case will have been made aware of the idea that they can judge not just the facts in the case, but whether or not a certain law is just in the first place?”

So far this year, Justice activists in New Hampshire have reached juror selection dates in over half of the county courthouses in the whole state.

Previously, activists who moved to New Hampshire for the Free State Project handed out jury nullification material, informing jurors of their rights to nullify bad laws, in Keene and Manchester. This year, Manchester activists also reached Nashua to the south. Rights Brigade activists assisted in Manchester outreach, and additionally expanded operations to Concord, Laconia, and Dover.

Rights Brigade forms!

The time has come for real change in the world.

From a society living in fear of law enforcement it once looked to for protection, to a sluggish economy with high unemployment, to a governance system unresponsive to the desires of the average citizen, it’s easy to lose hope of a better future. Worse, solutions presented are mainly centered around either increasing the size and scope of the very government that failed to solve these issues in the first place, or simply criticizing current power structures without success.

Enter the Rights Brigade, a citizen activism platform dedicated to giving a voice, mission, and structure to activists seeking an effective way of bettering their world. Our mission is to promote and organize quality, professional activism in defense of our basic rights as human individuals, and to provide publicity for, and documentation of, said activism.

We believe that we, as humans and individuals, have the right to live, and thrive, as we see fit, so long as we do not aggress upon others. As such, we stand up for humanity’s basic rights in any peaceful, nonaggressive, positive way we can. We seek to organize and promote effective activism in five key areas: Justice, Defense, Representation, Prosperity, and Truth.
