Our friends at Look Ahead America (LAA), led by the indominable Matt Braynard, are organizing a second rally in support of the patriotic Americans unjustly imprisoned for their participation in the January 6 demonstration at the U.S. Capitol.
While Leftist rioters who burned cars and businesses, assaulted police officers and civilians in the 2017 riot during President Trump’s Inauguration were routinely let go with no bail, charges or prosecution, hundreds of peaceful demonstrators, many of whom were invited into the U.S. Capitol by Capitol Police officers on January 6, 2021, have been arrested and charged with crimes that could lead to decades in prison. Dozens remain in pre-trial detention with no bail.
You can read about the outrageous treatment of these Americans in our articles “The Indispensable Julie Kelly” and “Did The FBI Create And Direct The Jan. 6 ‘Insurrection’?” and Diana West’s “The District of Columbia Gulag Archipelago.”
Many have been in solitary confinement, denied access to their attorneys and the evidence against them. Some have been beaten and abused by guards, all are held in harsh conditions that would draw an immediate rebuke from the courts were a conservative jurisdiction to house prisoners in such conditions.
As Look Ahead America said in a written statement announcing the rally: Patriotic Americans became targets of the Biden Administration as the Department of Justice and the FBI have targeted, imprisoned, and persecuted non-violent American patriots.
Months have passed and our fellow citizens remain separated from their loved ones, isolated in solitary confinement, have been denied medical care, denied access to faith and worship services, and have faced financial ruin due to court costs and legal fees. This wrongful and unjust persecution must end.
We will be protesting at the prison where approximately fifty American political prisoners are being held, many of whom were non-violent protestors who have either not been charged or have not received the option for bail. This event is a peaceful demonstration of our First Amendment Rights.
Look Ahead America has arranged buses to transport participants into DC for the rally. The buses will depart from the Wal-Mart at the Spring Hill Silver Line Metro in suburban Virginia. There is garage parking available. The address is 1500 Cornerside BLVD in Vienna VA. The buses depart at 11 AM.

The July 17 rally is the second rally in support of America’s political prisoners organized by Look Ahead America. On June 19, Look Ahead America (LAA) led a successful rally in front of the Department of Justice in Washington DC. Speakers including Congressman Paul Gosar, Attorney John Pierce, activist leader Cara Castronuova, and the father of one of the political prisoners joined LAA Executive Director Matt Braynard in addressing the peaceful crowd. A team of a dozen private security agents retained by LAA reported no incidents.

At the rally, LAA Executive Director Matt Braynard announced the follow-up rally planned for July 17 at noon to be held at the DC Central Detention Facility at 19th and D Street SE where many of the political prisoners are being held.
In a statement, Braynard said:
If the prisoners are still being held in deplorable, abusive conditions without charges or without access to reasonable bail commiserate with what they are being charged with by July 17, we will rally at that prison and raise our voices in patriotic song so they know we stand with them.
In the tradition of Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, and Gandhi, we will peacefully protest this injustice at the prison. I urge every patriotic American to join us on that day.
