Crowd Gathers Outside Ohio Statehouse to Protest Coronavirus Lockdown

Crowd Gathers Outside Ohio Statehouse to Protest Coronavirus Lockdown, by Kyle Morris.

A large number of protesters gathered outside the Ohio Statehouse again on Monday to make their voices heard during the press conference held by Gov. Mike DeWine, Lt. Gov. Jon Husted, and Ohio Department of Health Director Dr. Amy Acton.

The protest came amid the stay-at-home order due to COVID-19, to which many Ohio residents have voiced opposition.

Throughout the gathering, chants of “facts not fear” and “O-H-I-O Acton’s got to go” could be heard from within the meeting room and through the microphones via televisions.

Of those in attendance for the protest, only a select few were wearing protective face gear, as others held signs that read, “Open Ohio: We want our rights back” and “My inherent rights don’t end where your fear begins.”

A significant development.
