March begins at High Noon on Wednesday, March 12 at the corner of 12th St. and San Jacinto in Austin
March 11, 2014
The Austin chapter of Come and Take It Texas is holding an open carry march at South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas this Wednesday, March 12 at high noon in response to the anti-gun event promoted by the internationally-known festival.
This armed march will set the stage for an even larger rally taking place on Saturday, March 15 in Austin.
SXSW, which showcases the latest in talent and technologies to thousands from around the world, is now hosting political events which advocate taking America back politically to an age of disarmed slaves.
This past weekend at SXSW, key leaders of gun control groups led by former N.Y. mayor Michael Bloomberg held a panel discussion in which they bragged about their takeover of Facebook and their success at restricting pro-gun speech on the social media site.
To counteract these attacks on our civil rights, liberty loving activists will exercise their First Amendment in defense of the Second by peacefully assembling for an international audience at noon on Wednesday, March 12, starting from the parking garage at 1201 San Jacinto Blvd. at the corner of 12th Street and San Jacinto.
The activists will then proceed to Congress Avenue and then south to Sixth Street.
This peaceful march will also be covered live on the Alex Jones Show, including interviews with those present.
Additionally, the event organizers want to emphasize that the marchers will NOT be carrying firearms that have ammunition loaded in the chamber and that rifles will be carried as close to 6 o’clock to 12 o’clock as possible (vertical in relation to the ground.)
If you can make it to this event, please do so and join free individuals on the cutting edge of the civil rights movement.
Also, due to heavy traffic and road closures for SXSW, please plan on arriving early (at least one hour or so) to give yourself ample time to reach the event.
