Anti-mask protesters gather ahead of lawmakers’ vote on school mandate
Many of the protesters targeted the school mask requirement, but others raised concerns about vaccine mandates, use of emergency powers and other government mandates.
“Unmask our kids” was a popular rallying cry at a protest outside the state Capitol in Hartford.
The statewide school mask mandate continued to take center stage as the Connecticut General Assembly opened its regular session on Wednesday. The mandate is one of Gov. Ned Lamont’s 11 executive orders lawmakers are considering extending.
