Salem protest against coronavirus restrictions flares at Capitol, governor's mansion

Roughly 200 people gathered at the Capitol in Salem to protest government-ordered coronavirus lockdown measures they say violate their liberty, and speakers urged steps including purposefully spreading the virus to achieve herd immunity and using guns to defend restaurants that defy state orders to offer takeout meals only.

Many in the crowd didn’t wear masks. Some waved flags decrying far-left group antifa or reading “We the people.” Chants of “USA! USA! USA” rang out as U.S. flags flapped noisily in the brisk wind.

After more than an hour of speeches on the Capitol steps and as a hard rain fell, the group began to march the nearly two miles to Mahonia Hall, the home to Oregon governors, to continue the protest there. They chanted “Whose streets? Our streets!” and “USA!” as their walk got underway.

A helicopter hovered overhead as they marched, and a message played from a Salem police car advised being in the roadway is unlawful and to get out of the street. But the warnings were barely loud enough to be audible in the crowd.
