9:00 to 10:30 PM Presentation by Dr. Julian Heicklen, Tales from a Lifetime of Resistance
The General Lafayette Inn has entertained revolutionaries for at least 232 years, making this historic landmark is a fitting site to honor our contemporary freedom fighters. (Their tasty brews and delicious food don't hurt either.)About Julian:
Julian Heicklen is a 78 year old libertarian activist known for his marijuana protests at Pennsylvania State University where he was a professor and more recently jury nullification outreach. Since October 2009 Julian has been traveling around the USA to do jury nullification outreach at federal courthouses. His outreach has created quite a stir with the "authorities." His refusal to yield his rights to costumed thugs or to compromise his principles has earned him multiple arrests and some brutal treatment. His commitment to freedom and personal resolve have been an inspiration to many. His presentation is sure to be both entertaining and informative.Julian's autobiography:"Julian Heicklen was born at an early age. At 8 days, he was circumcised. This was so traumatic that he did not walk or talk for a year. There was nothing unusual about his early development. He went to Cornell University to become the usual engineering nerd.
Unfortunately, while in high school, his uncle gave him a book about the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. To complicate matters, while at Cornell, he read Les Miserables by Victor Hugoand The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. He transformed from the ordinary engineering nerd into a raving maniac about freedom. Ever since, he engaged in all sorts of socially unacceptable behavior. He stole a house, won the Yom Kippur war for Israel, corresponded with Soviet Premier Yuri Andropov, tried to sue the U.S. Post Office, smoked pot at the main gate of Penn State University every Thursday for 3 years, had a municipal law declared unconstitutional, and distributed subversive material at the U.S. Courthouse in Manhattan. He has been arrested 23 times and incarcerated 8 times.
He has the delusional idea that he can transform the United States from a totalitarian government into a free society. His wife and daughters are trying to get him committed to an old age home. He prefers prison where he has around the clock police protection, something he could not otherwise afford. In addition, that is where the interesting people reside."
