Get Active Libertarian

Jury Rights Advocates Hand Out 250 Pamphlets, Stand Up to Violent Federal Security Guards

Our pamphleteering got off to a quiet start yesterday. Not one of the 17 state officers that poked and prodded us three weeks ago was visible. Apparently a memo came down ordering them to tolerate our peaceful public education effort. Our numbers increased to nine and veteran activists Julian Heicklen and Jim Babb brought more pamphlets. We even managed to set up a second location in the federal building courtyard around the corner and have some great conversations with passersby.

Three Furious Security Guards

And that’s when three furious security guards demanded we move across the street and threatened to permanently steal my camera. Our refusals to run away just irritated them more and they actually attempted to steal my camera twice. Over the radio came an order for them to stay out of the courtyard, so back to work we went!

Great video George.

Everyone should know, since it is not that clear in the video, that George bravely resisted the thug’s aggressive actions. I thought for sure he was going to be viciously attacked even further when he resisted the unwarranted physical attack. I guess that the camera can never really capture the arrogant and menacing environment created by those “servants”.

Anyway, thank you George for exhibiting the kind of personal courage that all freedom-loving people should admire and emulate.

You can see what appears to be evidence of money laundering at 7:24 in the video when a guy in a black Campaign for Liberty t-shirt puts money on the table. Dangerous crowd. Watch them.

Your already getting the ball rolling for future activism in that area where you live. Kudos and stay safe. I know your far more at risk where you are George. One day you’ll hopefully be in the protective blanket of the NH activist community.
