Florida Women being Evicted from Home for Living Off the Grid

A woman from Cape Coral, Florida is being forced out of her home after local code enforcement teams found out she was “living off the grid.”

Robin Speronis' Off Grid Home

The women, Robin Speronis, told her story to WFTX-TV who featured her lifestyle on the local news. The day after her story aired, where they talked about her “Off Grid” lifestyle, the City of Cape Coral sent code enforcement officers to post “notice to vacate” signs on her property.

Speronsis, a widow who lives in the home by herself, is now facing eviction because she chooses to live without being hooked into the grid. She told WFTX-TV, “Where is the justice? Why did they choose me,” she asks. “…because I was exercising my First Amendment rights of free speech in discussing living off the grid.”

The GridThis isn’t the first time we’ve featured this type of story. In fact, we’ve covered countless instances where people have been forcibly removed from their land, some even arrested, because they choose to live a more self-reliant lifestyle.

From Eustace Conway, who was forced to stop using his land after 26 years of running a nature school on it, to the heartbreaking story of Andrew Wordes, who took his life after code enforcement teams seized his home, to the Off-Griders in California who were threatened with arrest and forced back on to the grid, these stories are becoming far to common.

Like many of the stories we’ve covered over the last couple of years, I believe this case is just another example of how the government targets people who live a self-sufficient lifestyle. From using local zoning boards to literally zone people into submission, to the federal government’s attempts to redefine the term “waters of the United States”, so they can take control of private property, there seems to be an all-out assault on land ownership and the self-reliant lifestyle.

  1. Step #1, Don’t pay your taxes…
    Step #2, kill man who comes to put a notice on your house for not paying taxes…
    Step #3 Pay taxes…
    Step #4 Dump body in ocean with cinder-blocks and fishing line, on the arms and legs while punching a bunch of holes in the chest and lungs.//////
    For those fare away from the ocean, dumping body in tarp over an ant hill fare away where people don’t go for a few months then wrap up body after nature has done its work and put the bones in a 50gal steel drum and burn them, if any remains are left use a sifter/ EG metal mesh screen to separate the larger pieces from the ash, and repeat burning and spread the ashes until nothing remains. :)

  2. Step #5 Repeat every so many years.
    Though if you can…Go for the people that put up the notices on your neighbors house if at all possible to avoid suspicion being drawn to you and still getting your guerrilla warfare in. :)
    If enough people do this, the problem will be solved.

  3. Don’t register your property. Registrar of deeds cannot force you. Learn old english and learn that register means owned by the crown.

  4. This is not a dream, overeasy. Satan wants to force everyone into a corporate jurisdiction, us is a corporation, the city you live in is probably a corporate jurisdiction and if it is not then your county probably is too and if the county isn’t, then your state is a corporate entity which borrows and sells.

  5. We pay property taxes that go towards our roads, lights, public schools, utility systems, etc. We must live on land that is not owned or connected to the grid in order to truly live off the grid.

  6. The AMISH have lived off grid forever!!! They live in many states in the USA. Many native americans also still live off-grid!!! Both are protected in part by religious belief!! Maybe off-gridders/homesteaders need to research how both are protected UNDER FEDERAL, STATE, COUNTY, AND LOCAL LAWS to live off grid and maybe form their own communities with same beliefs to utilize the same laws.

  7. Owning property , there is mining rights and water rights not just land we walk on. If we are to truly own it we need to own it Al and rally for no property taxes . Only illegal alians foriegners, felony’s sould not own property .
