The Washington Post reports:
Organizers of the “Justice for J6” rally argue that many of the hundreds of people charged during the January insurrection, when a crowd incited by President Donald Trump’s false claims of a stolen election stormed the Capitol, were actually nonviolent and participating in a political protest.
Now, rally organizers argue, those people are facing unjust charges and being detained as “political prisoners,” an assertion that has exploded beyond the far right and been embraced in mainstream conservatism.
The “Justice for J6” rally is scheduled to begin at noon at Union Square, a public park near the Capitol Reflecting Pool. Organizers are expecting around 700 attendees, according to a permit application submitted to the U.S. Capitol Police Board by Look Ahead America, a group that has planned protests in support of people arrested in the riot.
