Petition Background

This isn't about guns. This isn't about left vs right, or whether you like Kokesh or not. This is about human rights.

Adam Kokesh is being imprisoned in DC for loading a gun on Youtube. He is being held without bond, without trial, and without bail. He was beaten and his home invaded. For 2 months he was in solitary confinement.

Kokesh's "crime" was a political movement--he planned to stage a rally. He didn't hurt anyone, but he's being treated worse than a murderer. He is a political prisoner, pure and simple. America isn't supposed to have political prisoners.

Tell DC Chief Lanier to restore Kokesh's Constitutional rights and stop persecuting him for his political beliefs.
