(Philadelphia, PA, July 31, 2013)—Shield Mutual is launching the "My Friend Adam" project in support of libertarian activist Adam Kokesh on Thursday, August 1, 2013 at http://MyFriendAdam.org.
Family, friends, fans and allies of Kokesh are posting videos, photos, tweets and Facebook status updates in support of Kokesh with the hashtag #MyFriendAdam. Liberty community businesses are offering prizes for the best videos.
Kokesh was arrested at his Virginia home on July 9 in a brutal paramilitary raid by US Park Police, complete with laser sights, APCs and black helicopters. Kokesh is facing Virginia state victimless crime charges and is currently being held against his will in a Washington, D.C. cage on a single firearm possession victimless crime charge after his July 4 YouTube video in which he appears to load a shotgun in Washington D.C.'s Freedom Plaza.
Judge Frederick Sullivan denied Kokesh bail this past Monday, July 29, 2013 claiming that Kokesh is "a very dangerous man."
"Our goal is to get Adam out of that cage so he can properly defend himself in the legal process and attend to his business, the 'Adam vs. The Man' show," said George Donnelly of Shield Mutual, Kokesh's public relations defense firm. "We will correct Sullivan's misstatement once and for all with our first-hand YouTube testimony." Before August 13, 2013 when Adam Kokesh next has a chance at bail, MyFriendAdam.org hopes to inspire thousands of video blogs and social media posts in defense of the peace activist.
