Today, from 9am to 11am, bikers will be rallying at Washington D.C.’s WWII Memorial that has been closed to the public due to the federal government shutdown. The bikers plan to honor the WWII veterans and show their support. An excerpt from their facebook page via Breitbart:
We have full support from 2MBTDC and Top Fuel Bill’s riders support this event. Both groups have distributed full ride details to their members. We already have riders coming in from adjacent states to support our vets. At the present time, we are expecting 1,000+ riders to come to DC to support this event!
Please escalate this event to all interested riders! We are going to show DC how quickly we can amass a staggering number of riders and take it to the streets of DC!! Share this with everyone you know!
Riders!…Kick Stands Up and lets ride for these American Heroes!! America’s Greatest Generation defended our rights 70 years ago. Not it’s time that we defend THEIR rights and ensure they have access to THEIR Memorials. It’s time we show our government that we will no longer tolerate the political thugs that feel they can punish America into submission!! We are done with it!!
Eric Zern is coordinating the event and he also coordinated the protest against the Muslim March on the 12th anniversary of 9/11 in D.C. The event brought an estimated 880,000 bikers, despite them being denied a permit to rally.
