Minnesota parents refuse lockdowns and mask mandates for school children

The group claims to represent more than 30,000 Minnesota families and slams the "uninvited reign of destruction over the children of Minnesota."

Dozens of parents groups in Minnesota have voiced their opposition to Democrat Governor Tim Walz latest mandates for school children in that state. The letter from 36 parent groups to the governor rejects "lockdowns and forced masking."

The parents advocacy groups, under the banner of Open Schools USA, call on leaders to overturn the "local and national calls for new lockdowns and enforced masking" of children.

In the letter, addressed both to Walz and to President Joe Biden, the group claims to represent more than 30,000 Minnesota families and slams the "uninvited reign of destruction over the children of Minnesota."

They say that they have watched the new restrictions unfold "in abject horror," and they the government institutions and leaders are "failing out children at every turn, again."

The "renewed calls for lockdowns, enforced mask mandates, and masking in schools i not rooted in science and is objectively cruel to the most vulnerable" in society, namely the children of Minnesota and America at large.

The parents state that they "believe" that Biden and Walz "are in fact aware of this and continue to play political games" with the children, "despite" parents efforts to work with them over the past year of pandemic-inspired lockdowns and school closures.

They state firmly and clearly that they will not mask children in schools, will not allow "private sector counterparts" to the administrations of Biden and Walz to "enforce invasive mask mandates" on children in any realm of public life, and further will not allow children to be subjected to "any further local, regional, or national lockdowns or movement restrictions."

"They are not your children. They are ours and they too, are Americans with rights. They are our responsibility and our most beloved. They are not yours," they write.

Further, they support those entities that have not fallen in line with leaders and corporate demands. To parents, they write "you are not alone. We urge you to connect with other parents and make your voice heard."

"We are strong. We are united. We are in control. We have never and will never co-parent with the government."

In many parts of the US, school closures began in March 2020 and many schools remained closed for more than a year. Now, as the pandemic continues, many school districts are reinstituting those same limitations on education. Many parents, including these 30,000 families in Minnesota, are simply not having it.
