A handful of protesters gathered outside of a federal courthouse in Philadelphia, PA, yesterday, bearing Gadsten and inverted American flags. They said that their friend and fellow protestors, Adam Kokesh and N.A. Poe, were being held inside.
Thoughts on Liberty has exclusive video from that event.
Libertarian activist, creator and host of Adam Versus the Man, Iraq veteran and anti-war protestor Adam Kokesh was arrested at a Philadelphia Smoke Down Prohibition rally on May 18th and has been charged, along with N.A. Poe, with resisting arrest.
However, video of the arrest shows Adam with his hands up. It could barely be called resisting arrest, and Adam is in no way, shape or form assaulting anyone. Yet he is reportedly being charged with assaulting a federal officer.
Thoughts on Liberty has exclusive footage from yesterday’s protest:
Two women talk to Gina about their experiences at the rally, and one shows the injuries she obtained when she was arrested:
Adam and N.A. are being held without bail. They are scheduled to appear in court Thursday.
Kokesh recently made news when he asked 1,000 people to march across the Potomac on July 4 carrying loaded rifles to “protest against tyranny.”
