New Illinois Meeting – The Movement to Split the State of Illinois

(Knoxville, IL – November 26, 2022)—On Tuesday, December 6, at 6:00 PM, New Illinois, Inc. will hold an informational meeting at Big Catz BBQ, 221 E. Main Street, Knoxville, IL. The Knox County Patriots will host the event.

New Illinois one of the leading organizations in Illinois pursuing the formation of a new state separate from the current State of Illinois, Chicago, and Urban Cook County. Speakers will include G. H. Merritt, co-founder and State Chairman of New Illinois.

The United States Constitution gives us the RIGHT to representative state government. But Illinois is a corrupt, failed state. Illinois gives power to favored people, groups, and municipalities—notably Chicago and Cook County—which means it’s not fulfilling its responsibilities to the rest of its citizens. This corruption and lack of accountability have created a financial disaster.

The United States Constitution also gives us the RIGHT to pursue the formation of a new state separate from the State of Illinois. Article IV, Section 3 provides us with the process.

There is no cost to attend. For more information, contact Chris Brown at (309)231-1280 or chrisbrown2273@yahoo.com.

About New Illinois

New Illinois is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit incorporated in 2018 and active throughout the state. New Illinois’ mission is to educate Illinoisans about their right, under the U.S. Constitution, to pursue the formation of a new state. New Illinois envisions a NEW State where all residents will experience representative government, not just those living in the one county (Cook) where power is concentrated. The Declaration of Independence declares that “People are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights and can alter or abolish a government destructive of those rights.” New Illinois believes the situation in Illinois has reached this point.
