Protestors have gathered across the US and Canada in the last few weeks to push back against the coronavirus lockdown and Toronto is the next city set to host a major protest, scheduled for April 25 at Queen’s Park.

Signs for the upcoming peaceful protest have been cropping up across the city, depicting a flock of birds flying free from a cage.

The Post Millennial reached out to the social media manager for the protests, who said that the “protest means something different for everyone but the biggest issue we feel is that poverty is death.”

“Fining people who have lost their source of income, who are exercising their right to assembly, is barbaric.”

“We are fighting for small business, for the working class, for the poor, students, for victims of domestic abuse, for dogs… they locked dog parks. For freedom, for liberty and mental and physical health.”

This protest follows those peaceful protests that have taken place in Calgary and Vancouver within the last couple weeks, and the intention is peaceful assembly.

Dan Dicks videoed the Vancouver march for Press for Truth, which has been described as an "alternative media outlet," according to Fresh Daily. Dicks posted videos and photos of the protest online, where he encouraged residents to not “drink the Kool-Aid.”

There are those who do not understand the specific motivations for the protestors opposing the lockdown, according to blogTO. However, many of the protests were attended by people who are worried about the future of the economy and have a desire to resume normal life. Some also fear that the government has used this vulnerable time to install invasive measures in an effort to monitor its citizens, and that these measures will not be easily overturned once the crisis eases.

Toronto has warned citizens that they will be fined $1,000 if they do not maintain social distancing orders.
