Patriot Prayer Washington 3 Percenters plan Saturday rally in downtown Seattle

first_imgTwo right-wing groups, Washington 3 Percenters and Patriot Prayer, are planning a “Liberty or Death” rally Saturday by Seattle City Hall that also is expected to draw counterprotesters from the left.The rally is scheduled for 1 to 4 p.m. at City Hall Plaza. Left-wing counterprotest groups, including Organized Workers for Labor Solidarity, Radical Women and the Freedom Socialist Party, are planning to stage a rally from noon to 4 p.m. at the same site to “unite against fascism.”The right-wing rally is intended, in part, to oppose Washington gun-control Initiative 1639. The initiative, if passed, would increase the age requirement for purchasing semi-automatic weapons to 21, establish enhanced background checks for these weapons and secure gun-storage requirements for firearms.However, a judge on Friday dealt a major blow to the proposed firearms-regulation measure, raising questions about if it will appear on the fall ballot.Seattle police wrote in a tweet Friday that officers will be directing traffic during the rallies.Matt Marshall of Washington 3 Percenters, in an Aug. 6 Facebook posting, said that members of his group will be “exercising our 2nd amendment rights, which includes open carry” of firearms.last_img read more
