Free Adam Kokesh Campaign to Melt US Attorney’s Phone Lines
(Philadelphia, PA, May 20, 2013)— Activist advocate Shield Mutual has launched the Free Adam Kokesh Campaign in response to the US Park Police’s arrest of activist Adam Kokesh while speaking to a marijuana legalization rally on Saturday, May 18 in center city Philadelphia.
A video on YouTube shows the US Park Police arresting Kokesh while he was speaking to the crowd. He is currently being held at the Philadelphia federal prison. “They just came after Adam and N.A. Poe, the organizer of Smokedown – the only two there out of hundreds present who were taken into custody,” said Michael Salvi, an observer of the rally.
Shield Mutual is conducting a call ﬂood on Monday, May 20 starting at 8AM. Friends of Adam Kokesh are currently calling the US attorney, the US magistrate and other federal bureaucrats to politely but ﬁrmly demand that Kokesh be immediately and unconditionally released. More than 1,000 people have already RSVP’d on Facebook for the call ﬂood and hundreds have already called.
Supporters of Kokesh and N.A. Poe, who was arrested with Kokesh on Saturday, are currently rallying outside of the Philadelphia federal courthouse at 601 Market St.
