Protests staged across the US calling for the lifting of stay-at-home orders imposed by state governors.

Thousands of people across the United States have protested against "stay-at-home" orders after President Donald Trump encouraged people to defy coronavirus lockdown imposed by state governors.

US President Donald Trump, who will seek re-election in the 2020 elections, has called for reopening of economic activities saying enough coronavirus testing has been done - a claim refuted by several governors belonging to both parties.

An estimated 2,500 people rallied at the Washington state capitol in Olympia to protest against Democratic Governor Jay Inslee's stay-at-home order, defying a ban on gatherings of 50 or more people.

In Denver, hundreds of people gathered at the state capitol to demand the end to Colorado's shutdown. As protesters clogged streets with cars, healthcare workers in scrubs and face masks stood at intersections in counterprotest.

Stay-at-home measures, which experts say are essential to slow the spread of the virus, have battered the US economy and more than 22 million Americans have filed for unemployment benefits in the past month.

Demonstrations to demand an end have previously erupted at a few spots in Texas, Wisconsin and the capitols of Ohio, Minnesota, Michigan and Virginia.

Trump has faced criticism for the handling of the pandemic, which has killed more than 40,000 people and infected nearly 750,000 in the US

Please Pray For Europe And America, if They Get Better I Am Satisfied.


Nigerian Government Can Continue Twistin Things (one Day We Shall Separate The Fools from The Wise)


If Your Lockdown Is Called Off And They Are Still On Lockdown your Country Is Doomed, because Your Country Literally Imports Every Thing.

But Dont Worry, just Pray For America and Once They Get Better Nigeria Will Suddenly Get Better too, just Watch.

Well, if this was an African country, a lot of hypocrites praising them right now here on Nairaland, would have said a whole lot of demeaning comments on the Africans.

But yet, that country has got a standard, look at the them protesting without the fear of intimidation from any security personnel. I wonder if such could happen in my country (Nigeria). The government itself would have been the first intimidation by ordering massive arrest of the citizens.

Wow! Love this, if only we Nigerians also can just move out on mass with the mind set of protesting against this home address it will be better, and beside those people over ther known really well what the 5G is all about and they don't want to be colonise. Inother for we Nigerian not to start working for money let us click on MONEYFORWORK>>> so that we will be financially free and go on with the protest if we wikk be doing it will not be hard for every one of us, pinao much believe that when their I unity, we will achieve a set giak with ease and nobody can stop stop us.

It must be really hard to be a leader:
if you don't lock down and people die, you get blamed.
if you lock down and people remain healthy enough to protest, you stilll get blamed.

They protest with their national flags.
But in Nigeria, you see some pigs breaking shops, stealing and raping and they call it protests.
Backward people.

Trump lifting lockdown for the sake of his re-election bid.
The reason the citizens are staging these protests is because of his (Trump) directives which could backfire.

It's all politics.

He needs to score a point against next election at the expense of human life's.

Even if the economy is opened, how many people are ready to risk it. This pandemic will alter human ways for a long time till a cure is found.

angry

What are they rallying for? They have not been subjected to abject lack and want like Nigerians, yet they can't sit their Butts at home? What if their case was like ours where the govt don't give a hoot if you die or live and all they know is sit at home, what will they do? And to think they have the highest index case and death rate.
Let them chilax abeg.

Very soon it will be over.
