It’s been almost a year since Governor Brad Little first issued his “Stay-at-Home” order in the wake of COVID-19.
Over the last year, Little has issued a number of “Emergency Orders.” Additionally, cities, counties, and health districts have issued a variety of mask mandates in Idaho.
A number of protests have also taken place against the shutdowns and mask mandates during that same time.
Tomorrow, a group is holding statewide “Burn Sites” for burning masks, copies of emergency orders, and copies of mask mandates.
The group holding the event is called “Free Idaho.”
One of the organizers for the event is Darr Moon. Idaho Dispatch asked Moon for a comment on why the group is holding the events and he told us,
Government has failed and is broken. We need to bring it back to the republican form of government that it used to be.
According to the group’s website, approximately 28 “burn sites” with most of the events beginning at 10:00 a.m. local time. Several of the events take place later in the evening.
Idaho Dispatch reached out to Little’s office for comment but they have not yet responded to our request. If Little does respond, we will update the article accordingly.
What do you think of the mask burning events? Do you intend to participate or not?
