Third North American Secession Convention
« on: October 07, 2008, 08:51 PM NHFT »

Several of us went to the first one in Vermont two years ago; it was really interesting.  This one is almost too easy to get to; it's in downtown Manchester, and it's FREE!  But you need to RSVP ahead of time.  I'll be there (my feelings towards secession are far warmer than they were two years ago).

THE THIRD NORTH AMERICAN SECESSIONIST CONVENTION
November 14-16, 2008 in Manchester, New Hampshire
   
MARCH 31—The Middlebury Institute has announced that the Third North American Secessionist Convention will be held in Manchester, New Hampshire, on November 14-16, 2008.

Delegates are expected from a majority of the three-dozen current secessionist organizations in the United States and  Canada. As in the two previous conventions—in Burlington, Vermont, in 2006, and Chattanooga, Tennessee, in 2007—delegations will give reports on the activities in their areas in the previous year and  trade information on strategizing, organizing, and politicking.

In previous years, participants have uniformly expressed enthusiasm for the conventions as showcases for the secessionist movement and workshops for the down-home business of spreading the secessionist message.  Both meetings issued declarations of purpose and policy, available on the website, MiddleburyInstitute.org.

One highlight of the meeting will be a presentation of the idea of an independent Atlantic federation of Canadian maritime provinces and northern New England states. The  proposal has been around for a number of years, but recently there has been renewed interest, especially in Canada, and this venue will provide a way to introduce it in this country in an impactful way.

In addition to delegates mandated by individual secessionist groups, individuals with a general interest in secession and separatism, or who might be considering organizing such a group, are invited to attend.  All who intend to attend must contact the Director@MiddleburyInstitute.org, and of course the sooner the better.

As in the past, the Middlebury Institute is willing to underwrite the travel costs for some of the mandated representatives, especially from the West, who are genuinely unable to pay their own way.

Details of the convention follow:
 
Radisson Hotel Manchester
700 Elm St.
Manchester, NH 03101
603-625-1000

Reservations: 603-206-4109, or 1-800-333-333.  A block of rooms at a special rate of $119 a night (single, double, or triple) is being held by the hotel, and individuals should indicate they are with the Third North American Secessionist Convention.  Online reservations should use the following PAC CODE: SEC08 at www.radisson.com/manchesternh.  Reservations must be made by October 24 at 12 p.m. to get this rate.

Schedule:

Saturday, November 15—
9-5 p.m., Convention, in Theater.

I'll see you there.  I think Jason might even stop by.  I'm going to be handing out FTL flyers and wearing FTL clothes.

I'll be there with bells on.  (I can't believe I just typed that - it's quite gay...)  I am a major supporter and believer in secession; my one concern is that a state has to be ready.. I don't currently feel my toes a curlin'  about it when I travel along Dover Point road with its abundance of filthy, socialist signage.

I see a charge for hotel, but what about the convention?  I would love to go, depending on how much money.

Well, David.  You need to register by sending an email to the organizer.  Other than that, things should be free unless you want to buy drinks.  Maybe you could even carpool with someone from Keene to save money.

I am from the Keene area, and am planning to attend, and would be willing to either have others carpool with me, or I would carpool with others. Send me a message if you are interested.

I'm thinking long and hard about attending this event. I still have to get to NH one of these days, and this seems like as good a reason as any.

You do what you feel is right.  Hand out what you like.  Thank you.
