‘million maskless march’ and mass mask burning planned in florida

Florida residents are planning a march on April 10 to "mark that date with a celebration of freedom." No, Florida wasn't in some kind of war unless you count masks and the pandemic.

Protest organizer Chris Nelson invited Floridians to join him, stating:

"You are invited to the Million Maskless March and Mask Burning, Saturday, April 10, 2021 at 3pm at the Corner of A1A and Las Olas in Ft Lauderdale!"

He used an illustrative song as well, Twisted Sisters' "We're Not Gonna Take It."

The protest organizer further stated:

"April 10 marks one year of mask tyranny in Broward County and we will mark that date with a celebration of freedom! It will feature recognition and prizes for those who have faithfully endured this last year, addresses from local leaders and activists, and most importantly (and fun) a mask burning!"

While we understand the frustration, it's not like there's some weapon against the virus. Even those who are vaccinated might transmit the virus. It's all brand new, but people are acting as if mask-wearing is something against them personally.

The Symbolic Date

As the organizer explained, there's a special reason he chose 10th day of April:

"April 10 marks one year of mask tyranny in Broward County and we will mark that date with a celebration of freedom! It will feature recognition and prizes for those who have faithfully endured this last year, addresses from local leaders and activists, and most importantly (and fun) a mask burning!"

Nelson got a permit from the authorities:

"The mask burning is in full cooperation with local law enforcement and will be done in a safe and controlled manner. Following the mask burning, we will March north on A1A, make a sharp left at Seabreeze and march back to where we began. The event will be over by 5 pm."

Finally, it's not a political protest, but it is, if you take a look at this statement from the organizer himself:

"Signs are VERY important. Signs with three to six BIG BOLD WORDS are the best. "MASKS ARE SLAVERY". "NO MORE MASKS". "MASKS OFF CHILDREN". "NO VACCINE PASSPORTS" are good examples."

"This is a non-partisan event but ALL political signs and flags are welcome!"

Vaccine Passports Are Among The Issues

Many states are considering implementing anti-Covid 19 passports. But, Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis made a vow to ban them on Florida.

He asked the Republican-controlled State Legislature to draft legislation banning the passports. By now you guessed it: red states are against, while blue ones are pro-vaccine passports.

DeSantis stated at the press conference:

"We always said we wanted to provide it for all but mandate it for none. And that was something that, while it was advised to take particularly if you're vulnerable, we were not going to force you to do it."

He added:

"It's completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you the requirement that you show proof of vaccine to just simply participate in normal society. You want to go to a movie theater, should you have to show that? No. You want to go to a game, a theme park? No. So we're not supportive of that."

The governor concluded:

"You're going to do this and what, give all this information to some big corporation? You want the fox to guard the henhouse? I mean give me a break. I think this is something that has huge privacy implications. It is not necessary to do."

While Florida's residents are burning masks, Spain made masks mandatory at all times, including at the beach or the local swimming pools.
