I have never seen any protesters in DC on the 4th. All the politicians are in their districts or on vacation, the offices are all closed and everybody else is drunk, stoned (they don't bother people for smoking weed openly in DC on the 4th) or just there for the fireworks. You've seen million man marches and huge protests in DC but I can promise you they are NOTHING even close to the crowd in DC on July 4th. It's a huge huge crowd, probably a few million people and they are coming from every direction. The atmosphere is like a carnival or amusement park.
That said, if they don't get arrested just for planning it and somehow get 1000 people to do it, they will scare a bunch of people and create absolute pandemonium. It could get so ugly so fast. I think it's a bad idea.
