Good work!  everyone who can PLEASE cut and paste more of my press releases above, not enough folks are doing that.    we could become like  a virtual major media outlet if we had 5 or 10 of us copying and spreading these press releases around the Net.

I wish more sites would let people post without registering. :(  I keep trying to post on some of the threads you've put here but I'm reluctance to do the registering .... maybe I should get a bogus e-mail account and register on them as Fred? ;)

NH: Free Stater protest draws heavy media coverage

New Hampshire's "outlaw manicurist" Mike Fisher got what he was after this week...his own arrest and a new focus on the legitimacy of business licensing. 

His goal was to deliver a message:  "In a free country, you do not need the government's permission to start a business."

On Monday May 9, Fisher chose to perform a manicure without a license, in front of the New Hampshire Board of Barbering.  He had vowed to continue doing so "until they force me to stop" and was as good as his word.   After giving him multiple avenues for retreat, Concord police reluctantly cuffed the 23-year-old Free Stater after he told them he would not voluntary stop performing the manicures nor appear in court if summoned.

Fisher had to spend one day in Merrimack county jail, but by the 11th his defiance of authority had generated coverage from every major media outlet in New Hampshire and many others outside the state.  He made the front page of the state's main paper (the Union Leader), received hours of news and talk attention on the state's primary talk radio stations and was on the evening news at least three times WMUR, New Hampshire's main TV station.   On Wednesday the Union Leader published a double-sized editorial against overzealous licensing and a sympathetic political cartoon depicting Fisher on a wanted poster. 

At least 5 TV stations outside New Hampshire reported the event, as did The Liberator Online.   The Free Staters themselves have a syndicated radio show which airs in about 9 markets around the U.S.; coverage there lasted all week. 

Virtually all of the media attention was positive or neutral.

A sampling of coverage:

The question no one knows the answer to is...what's next?

New Hampshire: Surprise victory for homeschoolers

A bill that boldly reduces regulation of homeschoolers in New Hampshire passed its third major hurdle on the way to becoming law this week.

Crafted by Free Stater Dawn Lincoln of Winchester, House Bill 406 would reduce government involvement in homeschooling by an estimated 30%.   It has spent the last three months working its way - narrowly - through State House committees, then the House itself.   On Tueday May 10 the bill came up for a vote in State Senate committee, where it passed 6-0.

It must now survive the full Senate and earn the governor's signature in order to become law.   Not bad for a piece of "extremist" legislation!

Text of the bill:

http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/legislation/2005/HB0406.html

One of the things I like is that it removes about 100 words text from the law rather than adding text.

Man Without I.D. Vows to Board Flight or be Jailed

Manchester, NH
May 21, 2005

Inspired by New Hampshire's "outlaw manicurist," another Granite Stater is stepping forward to peacefully defy license-related laws.  Thirty-five-year old Russell Kanning of Keene has announced he will approach a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoint at Manchester airport on June 11 and refuse to cooperate with the requirement to show ID.  "I will either board the plane without I.D. or be arrested," he says.  "In a free country you do not need government permission to travel."

Kanning has a ticket to Philadelphia and, if allowed to travel there, plans to celebrate by visiting Independence Hall.

Two months after the September 11th attacks, the Aviation Security Act federalized airport security nationwide and granted new police powers to the TSA.  Now, an ID is mandatory to travel by commercial aircraft, passengers must travel alone past security checkpoints, and random full-body searches in public are considered normal.

Kanning stresses that he will not resist arrest or do anything that might be perceived as physically threatening.  He says this act of nonviolent resistance will follow the model laid down by Gandhi, who used peaceful noncooperation to expel the British from India.  "We will tell them everything we're going to do ahead of time.  We are not going to disrupt the operation of the airport," he says.

Kanning says the parallels with Gandhi's situation go further than a shared belief in nonviolence.   "In South Africa (where Gandhi's protests began), Indians had to have special I.D...so it's very similar that way, and he wanted to burn it...He was appealing to that same basic idea that we have rights to not have to have paperwork to be able to move freely."

Earlier this month another Gandhi admirer, Mike Fisher of Newmarket, used the Mahatma's techniques to protest business licensing.  After announcing he would perform an unlicensed manicure in front of the state licensing offices, he carried out his promise, earned a brief trip to jail and received heavy regional media coverage for his viewpoint.

Kanning says Gandhi's and Fisher's examples inspired him to take similar action against the growing "surveillance state."  He believes the Real ID amendment passed by the Senate this month will make things even worse.  But he says it's important to stay positive.    "The goal is we want to get to the point where we can travel without having to have paperwork so, this is the beginning of that.  We see light at the end of the tunnel. "

Currently the plan is for Kanning to approach the security checkpoint at 12:30 PM.  Journalists and supporters will want to be there by noon.

Summary:

What:  Civil disobedience against ID requirements under federalized airport security.
Where:  Manchester Airport in New Hampshire (exact spot to be determined)
When:  Saturday, June 11 @ noon
Who:  Russell Kanning of Keene, NH, supporters from NHfree.com
Why:  To draw attention to the recent and continuing loss of privacy and freedom due to federalized airport security and National ID.
How:  By approaching a TSA checkpoint with a ticket but no ID, refusing to show ID, and refusing to cooperate with the law until arrested or allowed to board the plane.
Contacts:  You can find out more and post questions to the discussion boards at NHfree.com
