A protest organizer in South Carolina said future demonstrations coordinated by his advocacy group will canceled until further notice, after about a dozen people who participated in recent rallies tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
"Some of our leaders, photographers and protestors have tested positive for COVID-19," said Lawrence Dishawn Nathaniel in a video announcement shared to Facebook on Sunday. Nathaniel, who founded nonprofit community organization People Demand Action, has helped lead protest efforts across South Carolina over the past month with an initiative called I Can't Breathe SC.
Nathaniel went on to explain the new diagnosis numbers in greater detail in the video. He said four organizers, three photographers, six protestors and several artists confirmed they had contracted the respiratory illness after attending demonstrations between May 30 and June 17 in Columbia, Charleston and Greenville.
After encouraging those watching the video undergo diagnostic tests for the virus before attending any upcoming rallies, Nathaniel said all future I Can't Breathe SC demonstrations will be postponed until case numbers decrease or organizers devise procedures to protect against further transmission. In the meantime, the group will conduct ongoing advocacy online.

These aren’t the only protestors by far coming down with Coronavirus as reports are many others have.
All Dems mayors and governors, who locked down small businesses, beaches, parks, etc, will now have to lockdown all protests if they say they care about saving lives.

Nope, cant do this as he apparently didn’t do this when small businesses were under lockdown and big box retailers were pretty much given free reign.
Not sure if he can legally do it too.
He encourage the protest in Greenville. The protest initiative was called I Can’t Breathe SC. I guess some of them can not breathe now..
No social distancing here with Nascar
I hope this doesnt turn out to be a smollett hoax or an extension cord tied in a normal way...because this will be embarassing
Testing positive for the most overrated pandemic in human history.
Send them some special blankets.
Good. If one can protest, one should be able to do whatever else he/she/it wants to. Just don't go to church!
Again, Whatever else he/she/it wants to do. Just do it and just don't go to church!
Boo freakin’ hoo.
but but but the press and Rat mayors have assured us that the riots and marches did NOT add to the increase in CV19 infections!
George Floyd had coronavirus. He really couldn’t breath.
“George Floyd had coronavirus. He really couldnt breath.”
That is what a cocktail of drugs mixed with a little coronavirus would do to you.
More people being sick is a GOOD thing for Democrat mayors, in Texas they blame the Republican governor and “opening the state”.
Also they need continued spread to continue their push for mail in ballots for all (so they can harvest votes)

“People have gathered to protest systemic racism and police violence in cities across the United States and abroad”
I thought they were protesting against paying for goods and open businesses. At least that’s often the end result.
Hey dbogs. Stay home. We wont miss any of you one bit.
I meant dbags.
Looks like their Charlie Foxtrot now has their own “Judean People’s Front.” Sounds like they couldn’t even manage a free junkyard.
