Radio Host to Lead Armed March on DC July 4th ‘To Put Gov’t on Notice that We Won’t be Intimidated’
May 5, 2013
Libertarian activist and radio host, Adam Kokesh plans to lead an armed march on Washington, D.C. this Independence Day.
Launched as a group on Facebook, the “Open Carry March on Washington” hopes to get 1,000 supporters to march into the nation’s capital with loaded rifles.
The group plans to meet at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. From there, they will march across the Memorial Bridge into Washington, D.C. and continue down Independence Avenue.
While Virginia permits open carry, Washington, D.C. does not issue any permit/licenses to carry a firearm.
The Facebook page states:
“This is an act of civil disobedience, not a permitted event. We will march with rifles loaded & slung across our backs to put the government on notice that we will not be intimidated & cower in submission to tyranny.”
The event is said to be non-violent and states that if the group is met with physical resistance, they will turn back.
“There’s a remote chance that there will be violence as there has been from government before, and I think it should be clear that if anyone involved in this event is approached respectfully by agents of the state, they will submit to arrest without resisting,” the event’s page reads.
The event is open to unarmed supporters, journalists and welcomes law enforcement officers to join.

Adam Kokesh plans to lead a march on Washington D.C. with men fully armed with rifles, pistols, and shotguns on July 4th, 2013. They claim that the government is corrupt and has been exercising their citizen given right as tyrannical rulers. Most likely, the group will be mowed down by the military in a swift motion by our kind government’s orders. All the onlookers will accept this heinous act by the government, and then move on with their lives while ignoring their civil liberties being taken away. We will regress into medieval times, and reestablish the serf class with everyone but the politicians a part of it. Because only brute force rules, and the people, who have no brute force, will submit to their rule.
