Thousands of people turned out at the Wisconsin statehouse in Madison to protest Gov. Tony Evers’ Safer at Home order on April 24, the original date the order was scheduled to end. The protest lasted for about two hours, beginning at 1 p.m. In addition to the large group gathering on the lawn, dozens of vehicles crept around Capitol Square waving flags cheering and honking. A handful counter protesters were also on hand. Speakers came from around Wisconsin to share experiences and opinions as evidence for not extending the order, which is in place until May 26. The new order did loosen some restrictions, but ask people to stay at home whenever possible. The Wisconsin Supreme Court is set to rule on the legality of the extension this week.
