Klayman Call For Occupation of LaFayette Park
The head of Freedom Watch, Larry Klayman, renewed calls for the occupation of LaFayette Park in Washington DC on November 19th. The protest is to demand the resignation of Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and John Boehner.
At Freedom Watch, Klayman has been active using the Freedom of Information Act to obtain information on several scandals in the Obama Administration. Fast and furious, Benghazi, Extortion 17, Solyndra, and IRS targeting, and the Rules of Engagement among our troops are among the few scandals that Freedom Watch has been actively investigating.
Investigations have been stone-walled by the administration. The administration redacts so much information from documents that they are unusable. They have also hidden behind executive privilege in the case of Benghazi. Klayman's efforts at legitimate means have been exhausted. He believes peaceful occupation is all the remains as a remedy. His website states:
A. Knowledgeable and concerned Americans know that the United States is in great danger. Barack Hussein Obama has driven the country into the ground and the political opposition has allowed this to happen. The nation is on the verge of economic, social, and strategic collapse, as the people’s grievances are being continually ignored.
B. Short of violent revolution which we hope to avoid, civil disobedience in the style of Mahatma Gandhi in India and South Africa, Lech Walesa in Poland, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, and most recently, democracy-minded Egyptians in Tahir Square, must be employed urgently before the nation goes under for the count."
The event was originally named "Reclaim America" but has been changed to "Occupy Washington." The effort is aimed at people staying at the event until the President is removed from office. The event was originally announced at the Trucker/Biker protest held recently in Washington. The speaker series is scheduled to begin at 10:00 am.
