Activists plan rally ahead of Bolton's address at Coast Guard Academy graduation

In advance of national security adviser John Bolton's keynote address at the Coast Guard Academy Class of 2019's graduation, a group of activists are planning a rally "to shed light on Bolton's nefarious legacy and dangerous policy stances."

The rally will be held on May 21 from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in New London. Participants are encouraged to bring signs.

Bolton, a former U.N. ambassador who was appointed to his current position on April 8, previously served as a senior fellow for the American Enterprise Institute, an attorney at Kirkland & Ellis, and a Fox News commentator.
