New Hampshire Peaceful Protesters Will Storm Hampton Beach on Saturday to ReopenNH
EAST DERRY, N.H.—ReopenNH is calling on all Granite Staters to Storm the Beaches this weekend to peacefully liberate New Hampshire from the arbitrary and unlawful edicts of Gov. Chris Sununu and his team of bureaucrats. ReopenNH’s peaceful rally will take place at Hampton Beach on Saturday, June 6, from noon to 4 p.m.
“We’re asking Granite Staters to help us celebrate D-Day and the freedoms that our ancestors were willing to fight and die for, which many have taken for granted,” said Andrew J. Manuse, chairman of ReopenNH. “Our forefathers were willing to storm the beaches of Normandy under enemy fire to liberate our mother countries overseas and prevent the spread of tyranny to our land. Let us not lose the spirit that made America the envy of the world.”
“We must have the same passion for protecting the rights of individuals, businesses, religious organizations, and nonprofit groups and not let government or unruly mobs trample our liberty,” Manuse added. “Remember, our Constitution was written to protect the rights of minorities, so even if it seems like Granite Staters are facing an insurmountable force, we should rest assured that the Rule of Law and God Almighty are on our side.”
As of this writing, Gov. Sununu has still not posted updated “emergency orders” to the governor’s Web site, which means technically the ocean beaches are still arbitrarily “closed.” The governor’s self-appointed task force has provided recommended guidance for beachgoers to remain “transitory,” while “stationary activities on the beach are not permitted.” The guidance also restricts groups to fewer than 10 people. It is not clear, however, whether the governor or anyone has actually granted authority to the task force and on what legal grounds the rules are based.
“Regardless of what unlawful maneuvers the executive branch has used to declare its arbitrary edicts, ReopenNH is speaking for the people and declaring that these edicts do not have the force and effect of law,” said JR Hoell, treasurer of ReopenNH. “With our Storm the Beaches rally, we plan to draw a line in the sand and declare that New Hampshire is open statewide. It is time to say ‘no more.‘ No more stay-at-home orders, no more lock downs, no more arbitrary rules, no more junk science used to justify poor public policy, and no more state of emergency.”
“Gov. Chris Sununu thinks it is OK for us to stand and watch our children play in the water, but it is not OK to lie or sit down on a beach towel,” Manuse said. “We’d like to understand the science that His Excellency is using to make this determination. Is COVID-19 carried by sand crabs or does it remain on sun-baked sand particles? Does it travel through fresh air? One thing we confirmed during the 1918 Spanish Flu is that fresh air is antiseptic, and patients who experienced fresh air and sunshine during recovery had the lowest fatality rates at the time.”
“This Saturday at noon, we’re going to sit down on the beach and enjoy everything it has to offer,” Manuse said. “We may even build a sand castle. We will definitely draw a line in the sand. We’re asking folks to bring footballs or frisbees to play catch, a shovel and bucket, as well as their beach towel to sit on, or dry off if they’re feeling bold.”
ReOpenNH is a group of concerned individuals devoted to getting New Hampshire back to regular life through a restoration of balance and reason, a petition drive at ReOpenNH.com, and coordinated demonstrations against arbitrary government.
