As of 12:35 PM EST on Wednesday, September 11, the much-ballyhooed Million Muslim March on the National Mall had a grand total of 25 attendees – including Professor Cornel West. The rally has thus far included some “prayers, speeches, and a moment of silence” for victims of the September 11, 2001 Islamist terror attacks. The rally, sponsored by the American Muslim Political Action Committee, was designed to protest America’s supposed misdeeds against Muslims across the globe since September 11, according to AMPAC: “In the past 12 years since 9/11 the United States government has failed to protect and promote Constitutional liberties and human life, here and abroad. We feel that accountability in government has been ignored and the time has arrived to collectively speak truth to power.”
The so-called March Against Fear was permitted for 1,000 people by the National Park Service between 13th and 14th Streets NW.
