Thousands of protesters took to the streets in New York City’s Times Square Saturday to protest coronavirus vaccine mandate requirements.
Protesters could be seen waving flags and signs on Saturday with many of them chanting against mandatory vaccines.
Protesters could be heard chanting “freedom” and “my body my choice.”
At one point a woman got on a stage and told Biden that she has lost her patience with him prompting chants of “F— Joe Biden” from the crowd
The event was part of the “World Wide Rally For Freedom” which took place in cities across the globe including in Australia where protesters clashed with police in videos posted to social media.
“We will push back against widespread propaganda, by producing our own media, and advancing our own narrative, instead of succumbing to the one being pushed on us. We will not accept the rampant politicization of science and medicine, and we will return these institutions to being neutral sources of information for the benefit of society, over government and corporate interests,” a press release about Saturday’s event reed on the organizers’ website.
Meanwhile Another group of demonstrators numbering to the thousands gathered to protest President Joe Biden’s visit to Boise, Idaho, on Monday.
The crowd which had been gathering since 8 a.m. were decked in pro-American regalia and carrying signs protesting everything from Biden’s recent vaccine mandates to the 2020 election.
Chants of “traitor,” “smell my hair,” and “Joe Biden sucks” greeted the president when he arrived in the afternoon.
A woman holding a sign which called forced vaccines “medical rape” told the Associated Press that she was protesting because she doesn’t think “anybody should be forced to put something in their body.” Another woman said she was there to “support America and stand for freedom.”
“If there’s not 5,000 people here, I’ll be disappointed in Idaho,” Idaho resident Dan McKnight told local news station KTVB. “We have a lot to say about the way he ended the war in Afghanistan, about his vaccine mandates that he’s forcing on employers. We have a lot to say about the way he’s done things, about his complete abandonment of border security, undoing everything Trump for the sake of undoing Trump.”
