rappresentante. Mast chiede a Biden di intervenire dopo che il gruppo di veterani ha negato l'uso del parcheggio del Pentagono

“Se guardi ai fatti che BLM può ottenere un permesso antisommossa a Washington, D.C., con COVID in corso nello stesso identico momento, come si fa a non permettere ai veterani di entrare nel parcheggio, the 70-acre parking lot of the Pentagon in this 20-year plus tradition? Total politics in my opinion,” Mast toldIl Faulkner Focus.”


Pentagon Special Events confirmed AMVETSpermit for theRolling to Remembermotorcycle rally on March 11 but later reversed its decision. Albero wrote a letter in April to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin urging him topromptly approvethe permit.

Mast wrote to Biden on Wednesday asking him to reverse the Pentagon’s decision becauseguidance from your own Centers for Disease Control and Prevention acknowledges that the risks of outdoor transmission are very low.

“inoltre, nine state, local and federal agencies have already approved AMVETSpermit for this year, including the National Park Service, Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia, Arlington County Police Department, Arlington County Fire Department, Virginia State Police and District of Columbia Fire and Emergency services,” Mast wrote. “All of these agencies believe this event can happen safely.

AMVETSnational executive director Joe Chennelly told “Il Faulkner Focus” on Wednesday that the event will still happen.

We will have a demonstration on May 30 a Washington, D.C. We’re not going to be able to stage where this demonstration has staged for decades, but we will have a central staging area in the District,” Chennelly said. “It will be safe, it will be coordinated, and we have a lot of protocols in place to make sure that the spread of Covid doesn’t happen there. And we are working with every other agency. There are a lot of agencies that are responsible for that region. We’re working with all of those. The Pentagon is the only one that wouldn’t work with us.

The Pentagon blamed coronavirus risks for the decision.

The department took into careful consideration all aspects of AMVETS request, to include the current Health Protection Condition status on the Pentagon Reservation; substantial community transmission of COVID-19 in Arlington County, Virginia; number of Americans fully vaccinated across the nation; nature of this event with its decreased ability to maintain physical distance; and large crowds in one location for an extended period of time,” the Pentagon said in a statement according to 7notizia.

This event draws national attention and participation; therefore the risk of exposure from participants from other communities extends well beyond the National Capital Region.

If COVID-19 conditions permit, the department would gladly consider supporting a future event request from AMVETS, potentially as soon as this Labor Day weekend. The department looks forward to supporting future events with AMVETS,” the Pentagon’s statement continued.

The coronavirus pandemic forced Rolling to Remember to go virtual in 2020.
