Thousands of protesters descended upon the State Capitol Saturday to protest Gov. Kate Brown’s COVID-19 closure of businesses and schools in Oregon.

People from all areas of the state could be counted among the many who lined both sides of the street and the steps of the Capitol building.

Vehicles adorned in slogans and paint — most sporting the American flag — streamed by honking, when the road wasn’t shut down by a dump truck driver, who hydraulically raised his truck’s bed to the sky and blared his horn.

Participants used the occasion to speak out with bullhorns, shouts and honking horns. Among the protesters were several who were fully armed and said they were ready to protect their First and Second Amendment rights.

The gathering was in violation of Brown’s order prohibiting congregations of 25 or more people, but police were not present at the event.

People in attendance estimated 2,000-5,000 were at the rally in vehicles and on foot.

  1. I was there Mr Brown. Where were you. Oh I forgot, you are on a paid vacation. How are those home projects going?

  2. Thanks for the nice coverage. Oregon is worth getting all open soon. Families are hurting. Their life savings put into businesses.

  3. Open the damn state…none of this makes any logical sense. Destroy the State and the majority of its working inhabitants just to guard against the flu ??? Insanity…

    • Here’s the news, there isn’t a god. YOU’RE (correct spelling and usage) living a lie, but you have my full blessing to live how you want. Don’t tell me how to live my life… Oh, wait, YOU’RE a “believer” and your fantasy book gives you the “right” to judge. Oops, cast the first stone? Must be confusing for you.

  4. I went to the rally. Oregonian reported 200 were there…Lie
    There were thousands. I didn’t even see those planted nurses who were pining away about all the sick and dying. I’m sure after their staged interview the Oregonian chauffeured them back to their empty hospitals…ENOUGH

  5. Dang it sure is nice to see there are idiots everywhere in the US. I was beginning to worry it was just here in the midwest.
