Free Užupis Now!


Jen writes, “Okay, if we’re getting back to 'extraordinary politics' then you all must be aware of the situation in Užupo Respublika.”

Excellent point Jen, especially since we're all about the business of slicing countries into ever-smaller (and yes, non-viable) bits. Alas, we should never forget the plight of those yearning to be free of the Lithuanian yoke in the Republic of Užupis. Not only does Užupis celebrate independence on April 1 *ahem* but they’re also the ones who erected Lithuania’s first statue of Frank Zappa.

Who said letting dogs be dogs cannot make for a viable society? ASPCA should recognize Uzupis now!
