Drinks in Common hosts Seasteading advocate Michael Keenan addressing
When land's hard to come by, build on water! Seasteading: What are the environmental, social, and business COST/Benefits?

Occupy San Francisco is apparently calling for refusing to budge from where people are now. That could be translated into awesome public policy shifts, but is it? Elsewhere there are those calling for abandoning the current regime's dominions and instead occupying the high seas where no federal law prevails. The latter are seasteaders, advocating for radical shifts of governance and economic model beyond the pale of City Hall, Sacramento, and D.C.

Come hear the seasteaders response to Occupy SF, and hear a challenge laid down to Abandon SF/Seasteaders by Jubilee/Torah-philes.

In our end is our beginning.

7 pm
at Notable House
189 Ellsworth St. in San Francisco
Complimentary supper at 7, remarks at 7:30,
Q & A at 8 pm.
