Report Free State Initiative in Activism for Reason, Rights, Reality Posted July 16, 2013 Is this still running? If so what name would the free state have? Clive, the project is still running although it has been going in low power for a while. We have been to Africa and talked to two governments, both of which are very eager. The name of the Free State is of course open for discussion, but my preference is that it will have a name that has the advantage of being 1) locally rooted, 2) easy to pronounce and remember for an international audience. Apart from that "anything goes."
