Street Address: 
John F.Kennedy Memorial Center for the Performing Arts - 2700 F Street, NW (public/north terrace, facing Watergate)
City: 
Washington, D.C. 20566
State/Region: 
DC
Date: 
Friday, May 29, 2015 - 12:00pm to 3:00pm

On May 29th at 12 Noon, peaceably assemble on the north/public terrace (facing Watergate) of the John F. Kennedy Memorial Center for the Performing Arts.

Since November 22, 2013, a precedent has been established - and even well received by The Kennedy Center's staff and local media - that the north/public terrace of this building (facing Watergate) is a most appropriate place for gathering in memory of John F. Kennedy every November 22nd (and May 29th, JFK's birthday), peaceably assembling and petitioning merely by one's presence for: 1) Immediate, un-redacted release of all still withheld assassination-related records; 2) Abolishing, or reining in the CIA to its original, intelligence-only mandate; 3) Ending the intimidation of official secrecy and the violence it perpetuates, necessary to achieve real transparency in governments worldwide.

While assembled, a "soap box" format will enable any and all present to speak (for perhaps two minutes each, as time and attendance permit) honoring JFK in petition for the above and related redress of grievances. As one year ago, it is anticipated that an MP3 audio of the Commencement Address (addressing issues of war and peace) given by JFK at American University, June 10, 1963 (see video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fkKnfk4k40), will be played in full, as both reminder and encouragement towards peaceful reconciliation between East and West (a message as timely and relevant today as it was in 1963). 

 

This year Musician Richard Ochs is planning to share his musical plea for truth and justice regarding JFK's assassination, "Magic Bullet is a Lie" (as performed at Nat'l Press Club in Washington DC on May 31, 2014 at the Celebration of the Life of John Patrick Judge: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOacom5Yjds&feature=youtu.be).

Upon conclusion of this assembly, those present may spontaneously disperse and peaceably reassemble elsewhere, perhaps in proximity to the White House (the Capitol, or elsewhere), in further petition for redress of grievances.

All in attendance are asked to view their participation not as a protest or demonstration - not "civil disobedience" - but instead as "Civil Obedience" of the highest order, peaceably assembling in the most Constitutional of manners, that JFK may be honored on this anniversary of his birth, and that together progress may be achieved towards the stated objectives.
