Hundreds protest in Huntington Beach to reopen O.C Beaches & end stay-at-home orders
Demonstrators gathered Friday in Downtown Huntington Beach to protest against California's stay-at-home orders and Governor Newsom's recent order to close all Orange County beaches to slow the spread of the infectious coronavirus.
Many demonstrations did not perform social distancing or wear any masks during the protest
Local police and OC Sheriff's deputies were seen on horseback and motorcycles monitoring the gathering.
According to the L.A Times, people were seen carrying banners that read “All jobs are essential” and “Freedom: We the people.” One person had a sign that said “Recall Gavin Newsom.”
Orange County Superior Court Judge Nathan Scott upheld Governor Newsom's executive order, by declining to issue a restraining order, per Fox 11.
