Intro to FreedomHaven.org [Lounge]
‘The next frontier of liberty’
Tony Olsen (None)

For Whom: Those who are passionate enough about true economic freedom and social freedom that they would move to a new frontier to obtain it.
Activities: Come find out about the Freedom Haven project (FreedomHaven.org) and what it will do for those who seek true freedom. Hang out each morning 8-10am while enjoying free pancakes (500 made each morning) and other times throughout the day depending on other PorcFest events (call 515-468-7364 to schedule).
History: As a child and young adult, I spent a total of 6.5 years living in Germany (two of which were in former Socialist/Communist East Germany on a mission for my church) and traveling throughout Europe. I witnessed what government oppression does to a people and began to understand the importance of freedom and the poverty that remains when there isn’t enough freedom.
. . . Today I see many needs in the world. At the top of the list, I see refugees fleeing oppressive governments, who seek a land of opportunity, many who struggle with the rising prices and reduced quality of socialized medicine, and the silencing of those who have recently lost their freedoms (like the people of Hong Kong).
Our planned Libertarian seastead would help to resolve those needs by providing land of opportunity for those fleeing oppressive governments, providing a place for the free market to thrive so that healthcare can be affordable and of higher quality, and giving people a safe place to be free.
. . . I am a software developer and a longtime Austrian economist but have spent three years studying concrete, shipbuilding, metallurgy, 3D modeling, international law, and anything that could be helpful in designing the seasteading community that I seek.
Note: Goals at 2022 PorcFest:
* Make 1,000 pro-freedom friends
* Find 200 people who want Freedom Haven to exist and are serious enough about it to donate $5 to our marketing efforts.

History: Grafton is the site of the Free Town Project.

May he rest in Eternal Peace. Michael died suddenly and unexpectedly of COVID-19 related issues on January 6, 2022. In memoriam, we will be selling his books, titled,”Walsh’s War – A Different Path to Vietnam.” All proceeds will go directly to his Memorial Service Funds.
Michael joined the U.S. Army at age 17 and was assigned as a paratrooper to the 101st Airborne Division. By age 18, Michael was in Vietnam in time for the Tet Offensive in 1967-68.
Michael came to feel the U.S. engagement in Vietnam lacked moral purpose and legal justification, and he refused to engage in combat. A detailed account of his experience is in his book, “Walsh’s War: A Very Different Path through Vietnam.” Please buy it from me and not Amazon. Thank you in advance. Isabelle
History: My family are refugees of the Vietnam conflict AKA as Vietnam WAR. We understand what it is like to be victims of the communist government. This same government used deadly force against innocent people and civilians to seize properties, private businesses and personal belongings under the guise of “the common good.” My family lost EVERYTHING: their homes, livelihoods, a peaceful way of life AND five of my very young uncles died valiantly trying to protect us and defending FREEDOM. My mother still suffers from severe PTSD because she was only eight years old when she had to flee, barefeet, into the jungle to avoid capture by the communist invaders. She had to witness her mother die in her arms during this invasion.
. . Porcfest has a profound meaning for me. I am grateful for fellowship with like-minded people and in many ways feel protected when I am surrounded by members of this amazing community. I still yearn for a sense of belonging and this is what I seek here, with YOU, the advocates of liberty, love, peace and friendships.
. . . I wish to share my Vietnamese heritage and culture through food and by doing this honor my family; particularly, my mother and in memory of my sister, Trang.
. . . Thank you to this amazing community for the opportunity to serve Vietnamese cuisine and your support!
. . .Sincerely, Isabelle Rose
Note: Much gratitude to ALL of the volunteers for organizing Porcfest! Thank you for your dedication and service! Volunteers, please contact me and identify yourself as a volunteer.
