Sounds like a great way to round up idiot dissenters. Dumb protest that can accomplish nothing right in front of a huge military base.

Protest can be useful, but what is even the end-game here? It's just kicking up dust

Get the aliens on your side and you might have a chance with some “inside support” like sabotaging the guns.

If I were an alien life form imprisoned at Area 51, I might consider starting an online movement to raid the place. Just sayin.

I already know how it’s gonna go down. Only like a quarter of the people who said they’re gonna show up are gonna show up and when they storm the complex (that’s if they decide to go through and not just stand around) the army’s just gonna fucking shoot some tear gas. Unless there’s someone who’s like really fucking serious about entering the base and is willing to take charge, there no way in fucking hell this will work.
