Adam Kokesh, an activist and 2020 Libertarian Party Candidate for President, will be leading a “The March of the Dead Veterans,” to protest veteran suicide in New Orleans.
“More than 20 veterans commit suicide every day. Our government and much of the media have been silent about this tragedy,” Marcus Pulis, Kokesh’s Press Secretary, in a press release. “It is the Kokesh Campaign’s goal to give voice to the voiceless, who are gone but not forgotten. It is time to end the drug war and give the VA to the veterans.”
The march plans to begin at 7:00am at a VA hospital parking lot in New Orleans and end at the Libertarian Party National Convention with a flag folding ceremony. Veteran activists plan to march wearing skull masks to symbolize the dead.
News2Share has covered Kokesh’s activism in the past. His work has been controversial and in many cases led to his arrest. Editor-in-chief Ford Fischer plans to travel to New Orleans to livestream and film the march. You can support News2Share’s raw, independent journalism here: Patreon.com/fordfischer
