An estimated 1,500 protesters rallied outside the Capitol Building to express their opposition to Wisconsin’s ‘Safer at Home’ order Friday, arguing that the order threatens their financial stability and their civil liberties.
The protest comes on the same day that the extended ‘Safer at Home’ order goes into effect, which continues to close all non-essential business and schools and bans public gatherings. However, the extended order does allow some businesses and activities to reopen.
Wisconsin Capitol Police were the ones to estimate that 1,500 people attended the rally. Police say no arrests were made at the protest
