Counter-Protesters in Scrubs Block Anti-Lockdown Campaigners in Denver

A man and a woman dressed in scrubs and face masks stood in counter-protest in front of a line of vehicles filled with people campaigning against the COVID-19 stay-at-home orders in Denver, Colorado, on April 19.

In this video, filmed in Denver, a woman leaning out of the window of a pickup truck can be heard yelling at a man dressed in scrubs and others: “Land of the free! Go to China if you want communism. Go to China. We want to open up and go to work. You go to work, why can’t I go to work?”

Photos and video showed the man and woman in scrubs blocking vehicles from continuing down Grant Street near the capitol building.

Storyful could not confirm if the man and woman in scrubs are healthcare workers.

Hundreds of protesters gathered in person and in vehicles at the Colorado State Capitol in Denver on Sunday for “Operation Shutdown” to protest against coronavirus lockdown measures and for the reopening of local and national economies, reports said.

Protests against “lockdowns” and social distancing measures have cropped up across the United States in April, including in California, Texas, Wisconsin, Nevada, Maryland, Idaho, Michigan, and Minnesota. Credit: Marc Zenn via Storyful
