Anti-Maskers In Toronto Had A Dance Party Protest At Cherry Beach Last Weekend
Multiple people showed up to the protest.
It looks like not everyone tried to keep their distance this weekend. A group of Torontonians operating under MAD (Mother's Against Distancing) exercised their right to protest by throwing anon Cherry Beach. The dance party was a way to oppose the COVID-19 restrictions.
Footage of the event was shared by one of its speakers, Chris Sky.
The video showed multiple people gathered together on the beach throughout the night.
Narcity reached out to Sky who stated that their dance parties are a form of protest against COVID rules.
"We throw a protest extension after-party at Cherry Beach because a lot of people can't come to the Queen's Park protest. Either their work is a sensitive industry like gov or health care, and they could be fired for being there," Sky told Narcity.
"Dancing in and of itself is a protest! Furthermore, we have speakers at each event between DJ sets that inform people."
"Educate people. Unite people. Make them less afraid and more willing to live life. COVID is overexaggerated to the point of lunacy," he added.
The Ontario government announcedthat it would be pausing its reopening plan for four weeks due to the recent spike in case numbers.
As it stands right now, gatherings of more than 100 people outdoors are illegal under the city's social-distancing bylaws.
