In related news, a protest took place at 2:00 p.m. outside of the home of Governor Baker Saturday in response to the dissatisfaction of the Massachusetts economy not being fully open.
In a statement prior to the rally, the group, Super Happy Fun America, who organized the Boston Straight Pride Parade, issued a statement about the event.
“The people will not be terrified into giving up their freedom in exchange for a faux security. 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.”
