SWAMPSCOTT, Mass. — Dozens of protesters gathered near Gov. Charlie Baker’s Swampscott home to push for a reopening of the economy and an end to the restrictions imposed because of the coronavirus outbreak.
The demonstration, which was organized by Super Happy Fun America and Liberty Rally on Boston City Hall, was held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The group stood at the intersection of Monument Avenue and Elmwood Road, which is approximately 240 feet from Baker’s house on Monument Avenue.
“The people will not be terrified into giving up their freedom in exchange for a faux security,” reads a description about the event on Facebook. “The politicians, bureaucrats, and media remain gainfully employed while they callously dismiss concerns about the impact their decisions have upon our jobs, wages, and well-being. Our campaign will continue until the governor and his minions let the people get back to work.”
