Anti-Mask Protesters Disrupt Utah School District Meeting

A school district in Salt Lake City, Utah, shut down a board meeting on May 4, saying it was disrupted by anti-mask protesters.

Video from the fractious meeting shows anti-mask protesters booing Granite School District director Star Orullian as she spoke in favor of the mask mandate, and cheering loudly as Monica Wilbur spoke against it.

State Sen Kathleen Riebe also spoke, after she was heckled and called “scaredy Kat” on the way to the podium.

Protesters then approached the board members’ desks and began chanting “no more masks.”
