Westboro Baptist Church is planning on protesting at the funeral of Michael J Guillory, a fallen soldier, of Pearl River, Louisiana.
Sgt. Guillory was killed in Afghanistan when his vehicle turned over.
The Westboro Baptist Chruch is notorious for protesting at military funerals and harassing the families of the fallen solider.
We are trying to organize a group of as many people as possible to form a human shield around the family of Sgt. Michael Guillory allowing his family to lay him to rest in peace and in the dignifying manner that Sgt. Guillory deserves.
Those in attendance need to position themselves with their backs facing the WBC protesters. We cannot chant, hold signs, or interact with them in any way what so ever. Our only objective is to create as much space between the WBC protesters and the family of Sgt. Guillory as possible. We need to keep in mind that this is a funeral and not a circus. We owe it to this family not to do anything that would disrupt or cause a scene at this young mans funeral. We are there to accomplish the exact opposite.
In order to set up our human barrier before the WBC protesters arrive we need to have our barrier set up before 12:00 p.m. at the Municipal Auditorium on Second Street THIS SATURDAY.
If you don’t live in the area or unable to attend, please, I URGE YOU to repost, signal boost, share with all of your friends and get the message out there.
Here is the Facebook page for the event. It provides the location so share it as much as you can.
This is a man from my community, and his family deserves the right to lay their son to rest in peace.
