“It is ironic that it is right here, in the ‘land of the free,’ the balloon is being grounded,” said CodePink co-founder Medea Benjamin.
There will also be a flag burning, led by Gregory “Joey” Johnson, the main plaintiff in the 1989 case that allowed the practice as free speech.
“When I see that flag burn, I’m not only thinking of the children who are starved and bombed by the U.S. in Yemen, or the children who are torn from their parents along the U.S.-Mexico border,” Johnson told the Post. “This is the workings of a system that the U.S. dominates . . . built on the plunder of literally billions of people around the world.”
During Trump’s remarks on Thursday, a number of protesters plan to turn their backs on the president.
It’s unclear if any of the protests will matter, though, as New York Magazine pointed out:
U.S. Park Police Sergeant Eduardo Delgado, in comment to the press, said that officers were ready for demonstrations on Thursday to turn violent but hoped that would not be the case.
“We’ll have people in different locations and watching,” said Delgado. “We prepare for the worst and hope for the best.”
