Jordy: Where are you? Are you in New Hampshire? When did this happen. What are the circumstances of the case? Did it happen in New Hampshire? If not where? I wonder if you can attempt to cancel the contract. I might be describing this wrong, but Michael's friend David (?) who is a new to our little group in Keene I believe tried something like this with some property where he put a trailer on it without asking the state permission in violation of some law. What he did was he accepted the legal paperwork without resistance and then wrote something on it like "I'm utilizing my right under law x to cancel this contract"... but I think you only have three days to do this in or something like that. He says he was "successful" in avoiding the legal implications that would have otherwise occurred and they never bothered him in the year thereafter he was living on the land. Now I suspect they simply didn't bother going after him, but none-the-less it's a tactic you might try. The key thing is to remember you are almost certainly going to lose- but that's no reason not to put up a fight. We need to get more people travelling without asking permission from the state (ie get rid of their IDs and hand in ones licenses plate, etc). Right now we have four people whom are driving without licenses or with suspended licenses in our New Hampshire community that I know of. Two or three are fighting it in the courts, and two cases are being followed and been published at www.freekeene.com. I'd be shocked if we didn't have a lot more people. Actually I think there is another person who told me he's also been driving without or on a suspended license or similar, but it was almost a year ago... anyway- we do need to get more people doing this. I'm just not sure if now is the right time to do it given the number of people here. However I'm still very supportive of anybody who refuses to surrender to the thuggery- the system.
If you fight this I'd love to partake in recording video of the case and your tactics, and I suspect Ian would be interested too. This is an issue I care deeply about. I do not believe we should have to ask permission to travel and supreme court rulings on this issue were dead wrong. The right to travel is clearly stated in the constitution and nowhere does it say "so long as you get a drivers license".
