Jury Rights Outreach – Brentwood (1/30/17)

Monday 1/30/17 was the third week of jury selection at Rockingham County Court in Brentwood, NH. The 1st and 2nd weeks have been extremely successful – all but 1 juror had received our flyer and 7 more were interested in the pocket constitution. Even though it was a brisk 30 degrees and having been there twice most potential jurors were very pleasant. A few jurors and a clerk even took the time to thank me for my efforts. One enthusiastic juror told me that one of the trial lawyer asked if anyone was a “free stater” so they could kick them out. The Free State Project is an agreement among 20,000 participants to move to NH and get involved in activities that promote liberty and freedom for all. More information about their cause can be found on their website.

Jury Nullification is when a jury decides not to convict a defendant because applying the law in that case would yield an unjust result. Activists inform jurors of their right to nullify bad laws by distributing informative pamphlets.

This selection group will be reporting again next Monday 2/6/17 at 10AM so come join us at 9:30 in front of the courthouse if you are interested. Hope to see you there or at future outreach events!

This operation was conducted as part of the January jury nullification campaign. You can track the campaign’s progress, and donate to support its completion, here.

Rights Brigade Mentioned By Russian Publication

The Rights Brigade was recently mentioned by Russian publication Furfur, a news site that covers alternative culture issues including cryptocurrency, LGBT, and the liberty movement.

The article details the Free State Project and its progress in triggering the move to New Hampshire this year. The last two paragraphs of the article deal with the Rights Brigade, mentioning our mission as well as recent accomplishments, notably jury nullification and our success in educating 3,000 jurors last year of their right to nullify bad laws.

We would go on more about this media mention, but none of us speak Russian at the moment. Although, it’s a good problem to have to make enough of an impact to reach beyond language, culture, and continent. Hopefully this trend continues.

Thanks for the publicity, and to all our Russian fans, glad you’re paying attention!
