Early movers Cecelia and Shire Dude, producers of "It's Like This Too," a new series highlighting early Free State Project movers, explain what motivated them to move, and what kind of activism they have been involved in since making it to the Shire. Stay tuned for a new episode every Monday on Voices of Liberty: Powered by Ron Paul.
It’s Like This Too, a new video series premiering Monday, November 3rd will focus on early movers of the Free State Project, and will explore what these movers are doing to create Liberty in Our Lifetime.
Based in New Hampshire, movers of the Free State Project are putting into practice a slew of tactics in an effort to advance liberty, and be part of a productive, harmonious, and, most importantly, voluntary community.
In partnership with Voices of Liberty (formerly the Ron Paul Channel), and hosted by early movers Cecelia and Shire Dude, It’s Like This Too will highlight efforts of FSP movers, including, but not limited to, political efforts, alternative education, outreach, efforts to become self-sustaining, and simply living free. The ingenuity that abounds when individuals from all walks of life move to a common location with a shared goal of liberty is both limitless and awe-inspiring; see for yourself.
FSP president, Carla Gericke, recently chatted to Tom Woods about her court victory over the police, growing up in South Africa, and the incredible community of liberty activists in New Hampshire.

New Hampshire's largest newspaper, The Union Leader, weighs in with a balanced article about Free State Project participants who are building better lives in the Live Free or Die state.
From the article: "But a little magic did already happen, with about 10 percent of those people having moved to New Hampshire. They didn't want to wait.
'I think some people thought there is no reason to wait. New Hampshire is already a pretty libertarian state compared to the rest of the country. And I and a lot of other people thought why not move there and take advantage of what New Hampshire has to offer,' said Jason Sorens, who started the movement with an essay he wrote as a Yale graduate student in 2001."

Polish liberty activist Marek Zemsta visited New Hampshire early in 2014, spending time with the Free State activist community. He was so inspired by the activities in New Hampshire, he started his own "Robin Hooding Krakow." Says Zemsta: "I would like to share my small success with you. At the end of July, we made our first official Robin Hooding event in Kraków. 6 people were saved from a parking ticket. Two weeks ago, I was finally able to prepare this video and post it on YouTube. Since then it has gained 50,000 views, which is my personal record. Moreover, our activism was described in two Polish news websites, and on Friday we will be doing another event with one of the biggest mainstream TV stations and their cameras. So once more thank you for tons of inspiration during my visit. (I made English subs for you.)"
