Keene, NH – The Libertarian Party of Western New Hampshire, on January 12, joined the Libertarian National Committee and LPNH Executive Committee in passing a resolution in support of the Free Republic of Liberland, a new nation founded on unclaimed land from the breakup of the former nation of Yugoslavia.
Current LP Western NH Chair and former LPNH Chair, Darryl W. Perry said, “As a Libertarian, I want nothing more than a world set free in my lifetime,” adding, “and I moved to NH to join thousands of other people to work towards the creation of a society in which the maximum role of government is the protection of individuals’ rights to life, liberty, and property. I’m excited about Liberland as a start-up nation on terra
nullius, and look forward to the day when the Free Republic of Liberland is welcomed into the community of nations.”
Perry added that he’d like to see more effort put into getting government bodies to adopt a similar resolution. The Motion was adopted unanimously.
