The Grievances of the San Luis Valley Costilla County Homesteaders (video)

Originally published at ‘ The Last Bastille’ 

Alex Ansary documented how the Costilla County Board of Commissioners in Colorado used their Land Use Code to criminalize homesteaders who lived off-the-grid. Ansary was able to interview about a dozen of these SLV homesteaders regarding the enforced changes to the camping permits they have been relying on in order to stay on their own land while they built their own homes. These videos are presented here in accordance with the Fair Use doctrine; cited sources are listed below the video compilation.
