Montgomery County Libertarians to stage nine “SHUTDOWN THE SHUTDOWN” Rallies May 30

The Montgomery County Libertarians are hosting an all-day series of nine rallies on Saturday, May 30, to protest the shutdowns that are “devastating businesses and individuals alike” in Montgomery County and throughout Pennsylvania, hashtag #ShutdownTheShutdown. The peaceful rallies are to be held once an hour, every hour, at each of the homes of nine state representatives in Montgomery County. Serving as celebrity guest emcee is Ken Krawchuk, past Libertarian gubernatorial candidate and host of “The Pennsylvania Project,” a weekly talk radio show on WWDB in Philadelphia.

The rallies are scheduled to occur on the hour, every hour, beginning at 9 a.m. and continuing until the last rally at 5 p.m. Each rally is scheduled to last one half hour, and will be located in the immediate neighborhood of the targeted Montgomery County state representative on the assumption that they are honoring the stay-at-home order. A detailed map listing the state representatives, times, and locations of the rallies can be found on the web at

Prominent Libertarian speakers are slated to appear at each location, and each state rep will be offered an opportunity to address the crowd. The rallies are to be held rain or shine, and are intended to be peaceful gatherings. Per libertarian principles, individual rally-goers are responsible for their own actions. They should also bring their own signs. Lettering should be at least three inches tall with good color contrast against the background.
