Hundreds protest mask mandates, vaccine passports at Oregon State Capitol
This footage was filmed and produced 14 August 2021.
An estimated 1,000 people gathered at the Oregon State Capitol in Salem on Saturday to advocate against COVID-19 mask mandates, especially in Oregon schools.
The video shows attendees, who were mostly unmasked, congregating on the neighboring plaza listening to various speakers promote personal choice and argue masks are ineffective in stopping the spread of COVID-19, despite studies to the contrary by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Protesters later marched around the Capitol Mall.
