The demonstration managed, in effect, to collapse the surroundings of the Legislative and local Executive headquarters, since it brought together drivers who traveled from the most conservative areas of the state to express their discontent with the isolation measures.
” Reopen Michigan now “, ” Set me free “, ” Freedom is essential ” were some of the messages that were read on the banners of the demonstrators, a group he joined stationed at the entrance of the Capitol, in whose gardens a notice was displayed with the caption: ” Security without freedom is called a prison .”
Without masks and greeting each other
Few of the attendees, who wore thick jackets, hats, and gloves from the cold, wore the recommended face masks to prevent the spread of the coronavirus , while social distancing measures yelled and greeted drivers.
The mobilization was scheduled to start around noon, but numerous cars, mainly trucks, began to gather in the area early to express their discontent.
The “Unity Bridge Trump ” float , owned by a citizen of Michigan , paraded through the protest , who since the inauguration of the president in 2016 usually attends “ trumpista ” events and that this time he spread notices inviting other drivers honking the horns and approving the construction of the wall on the border with Mexico.
The “radical agenda” of the Democratic governor, according to trumpistas
In its call for the protest, the Michigan Conservative Coalition noted on its website that the governor and her allies are ” infecting EVERYONE with their radical and progressive agenda . “
“There is no consistent, public plan to promote our overall physical and economic health , “ reads the message, claiming that people always say conservatives “never protest because they are too busy working: Well, guess what? You are not working, so it is time to PROTEST ”.
Groups were also created on Facebook, including ” Michiguenses against excessive quarantine “, to protest against the confinement and even ask for the resignation of the governor.
Prohibitions against bothersome coronaviruses
