Protesters across the country in Virginia, California, New York and Vermont are defying lockdown orders and protesting in the streets, demanding governors lift lockdown orders as restlessness in the country grows.

In Virginia’s capital demonstrators gathered in cars for a drive-in protest while some more raucous rebels gathered on foot outside Capitol Square in Richmond to decry Governor Ralph Northam’s stay-at-home orders, which are slated to last through June 10.

In Los Angeles a demonstration dubbed ‘Operation Gridlock LA’ unfolded where honking cars waving American flags gathered outside City Hall.

In Vermont demonstrators braved the snow outside the Statehouse in Montpelier to rally for the end of the state lockdown. A group of nurses counter-protested against their demands, wearing their scrubs and facemasks.

Lines of cars honked as a large group of dissidents banded together waving Trump flags, American flags as they ignored social distancing measures.

People from across the state attended the event, including Westchester and Long Island, most of them noticeably not wearing masks as the governor mandated.

Meanwhile in Richmond, prostesters waved American flags, some dressed in army garb, holding signs saying ‘Liberate Virginia’ and ‘Feeding my Family is Essential’ in the protest organized by conservative group ReOpen Virginia.
