Tyler Groves started this petition to Town of Canterbury NH and

Dave Earl Lidstone aka “River Dave” has been in jail for the past 15 days. The man is currently 81 years old. Lives off the land. He is a veteran a local legend a homesteader and most importantly human being. I’d like to petition for Dave to spend his years on the land. He’s always willing to help anyone coming down the river and he always has fresh produce or eggs for the campers. He currently lives off the land he has a PO Box where he gets mail. He grows his own food and raises chickens. He shouldn’t owe anybody anything. The property he’s on has a verbal agreement that he could stay there for the remainder of his life but how ever there is no proof of it how ever he’s been on the piece of land for over two decades with no harm to anyone. Currently sitting in jail while they’re planning on tearing down his homestead and keeping him off the land that he has spent the last two decades on, and created himself. His charge is violation of civil injunction, no bond at this time or release date. Please help me raise awareness of this unjustice and hopefully come to an agreement that could potentially benefit all parties being River Dave, the current owner of the property and the town. For more information please follow the link attached.
