Chad Andrew Elwartowski and Supranee Thepdet are wanted for execution in Thailand over their ‘seasteading’ efforts.

Seasteading promotes living in international waters free of any country’s laws.

“Hunting us down to our death is just plain stupid and highlights exactly the reason someone would be willing to go out in middle of the ocean to get away from governments,” Elwartowski wrote on Facebook.

The “seavangelists” believe that floating nations will “restore the environment, enrich the poor, cure the sick, and liberate humanity from politicians.”
