For Immediate Release December 18, 2004
SUBJECT: NH residents torch UN flag
Liberty lovers from across the Live Free or Die State converged on Keene, New Hampshire today to demonstrate their defiance of the United Nations. Twenty citizens from Keene and as far away as Rochester and Etna joined in opposing the UN by burning multiple UN flags. A promised counter-protest failed to materialize.
Various reasons for disgust with the UN drew this group together. Some were there in opposition to UN attempts to ban private gun ownership as was proposed at the 2001 UN Small Arms and Light Weapons Conference. A few gun rights advocates wore their firearms openly in celebration of the fact that our right to defend ourselves and our families is respected in New Hampshire. The oil-for-food scandal drew many to protest the excesses of Kofi Annan and the theft of our tax dollars.
The loss of sovereignty inherent in world government, and in particular from the giving over of US parklands to UN control angered many. Many were surprised to learn that the UN controls a large section of forest land in New Hampshire, the Hubbard Brook Biosphere Reserve and Experimental Forest, located in the White Mountain National Forest. Many participants in the demonstration hope for passage of New Hampshire's 2005-H-0002-R, which if passed will urge Congress to withdraw the United States from the United Nations.
US out of the UN amd the UN out of the US now ~ Bump!
Doesn't surprise me. Here's a link to the list of all the things that the UN has its tentacles into. Frightening.
Great idea! Maybe more likewise demonstrations will materialize..
In the liberal universe burning the American flag is a sacred right whereas burning the UN flag is probably a hate crime.
That's great response to the US Flag burning nonsense we've seen from lefties all over he world.

hmm coincidence or not?Its amazing how well open carry works wherever it is applied isnt it ?
"Many were concerned that the UN controls a large section of forest land in New Hampshire"
Many more will be surprised that there are other such areas in the US. There is at least one on the Oregon coast.

I was thinking of writing the u.n.(under false pretenses) asking for a flag and burning that s.o.b.
I like this,alot.
This is a move in the right direction........now we have to keep it moving till they are the he)) out of the USA.
Sounds like a good plan for future demos.
Does the ACLU have a flag that we can burn?
Geez, just down the road. If I had known, I could have brought some hot dogs and beer.
