Radio host and activist Adam Kokesh plans to lead an armed march from the Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia all the way to the White House and back.

http://www.rumormillnews.com/pix7/AdamKo.PNG

According to a Facebook event posted by Kokesh, titled “Open Carry March on Washington,” he plans to lead a peaceful march July 4th “across the Memorial Bridge, down Independence Avenue, around the Capitol, the Supreme Court, & the White House, then peacefully return to Virginia across the Memorial Bridge.”

Kokesh states that “this is an act of civil disobedience,” but stresses “This will be a non-violent event, unless the government chooses to make it violent.”

“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.”

An update states that Kokesh is already coordinating with authorities in the DC area and is encouraging them to honor their oaths and help escort the march along their route.

Libertarian and political commentator Lew Rockwell, on the Monday edition of the Alex Jones Show, warned that the march is equivalent to entering the gates of Mordor, and agreed with Alex that the event could easily be provocateured to demonize the growing liberty movement.

Below is the Facebook post in full:

On the morning of July 4, 2013, Independence Day, we will muster at the National Cemetery & at noon we will step off to march across the Memorial Bridge, down Independence Avenue, around the Capitol, the Supreme Court, & the White House, then peacefully return to Virginia across the Memorial Bridge. 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. We are marching to mark the high water mark of government & to turn the tide. This will be a non-violent event, unless the government chooses to make it violent. Should we meet physical resistance, we will peacefully turn back, having shown that free people are not welcome in Washington, & returning with the resolve that the politicians, bureaucrats, & enforcers of the federal government will not be welcome in the land of the free.

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. We are truly saying in the SUBTLEST way possible that we would rather die on our feet than live on our knees.

You are welcome to attend unarmed as a supporter, or armed with a recording device.

We especially invite law enforcement officers to stand with us armed however they feel is appropriate.

If this page gets to 10,000 attendees by June 1st, & we have the critical mass necessary to pull this off, (1,000 actual attendees) we will march. Please spread the word, share this event, & invite all your friends.

UPDATE 130506 Now that it’s undeniable that this is going to happen, allow me to make clear how. There will be coordination with DC law enforcement prior to the event. I will recommend that they do the best they can to honor their oaths and escort us on our route. Failing to provide that commitment to safety, we will either be informed that we will only be allowed up to a certain point where we would be arrested. If this is the case, we will approach that point as a group and if necessary, I will procede to volunteer myself to determine what their actual course of action with someone crossing the line will be at which point fellow marchers will have the choice of joining me one at a time in a peaceful, orderly manner, or turning back to the National Cemetery.

Thanks to everyone for the vibrant conversation, but we have decided to make the wall of this event page specifically just for announcements and important info for the event. Please feel free to comment, and continue the conversation as you like at:

The anti-war effort in Vietnam helped to end that war with Congress refusing to fund it eventually.
Even though Nixon and Kissinger wanted to continue it.

I doubt it'll actually happen but you can get around during the day on the 4th if you go on the back side of the museums.

The whole thing seems like a foolish idea. They're crossing from Virginia into DC with their guns? Ok.

I doubt seriously that this will happen. If it does, it would spell disaster, and the DC cops, Park Police, Secret Service, Homeland Security, and FBI would all know that well ahead of time.

The criminals in Congress get away with their crimes because their peers let them get away with it.

They are all guilty and they all deserve the guillotine.

I prefer putting up a Berlin wall around the Beltway perimeter and let them fight it out with the local population for diminishing resources.

Install a camera network and make it pay-per-view. The country could pay off the national debt and be restored to greatness.

The same statute of federal law that bans gun possession by felons, some mentally ill, dishonorably discharged veterans, renouncers of citizenship, etc., bans gun possession by unlawful drug users. IMO, that is kinda vague, but every federal circuit probably has some definition by precedent.

I doubt the US Attorney would bother bringing a case against a guy seeking publicity, but you might not want to champion open marijuana smoking at the same time you are championing open carry of firearms, if you are doing it in a way that says that you smoke it if you have it.

If he got convicted of that, then he would be federally banned from possessing a firearm for the rest of his life or a long time, whichever came first.

I'm fine with legalizing it. Short of that, it should be easily available for medicinal purposes. Doesn't mean that regular users beyond college age don't deserve to be made fun of.

In this case the feds have clearly enough evidence(if he stated he smoked) to convince a grand jury to indict, if someone wished to pursue it.

I wonder is this radio personality knows that law exists and what he would say to his audience about it and that the government is not bothering to prosecute him for it.

Charging documents filed in court Wednesday morning said Kokesh was charged with possession of hallucinogenic mushrooms, a Schedule I narcotic, while possessing a firearm. Possession of Schedule I or II drugs is a felony in Virginia, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a maximum $2,500 fine. If convicted of possession of the drugs while also in possession of a firearm, Kokesh would face an additional minimum of two years in prison.
