“We want to go back to work!” Demonstration outside Governor’s Mansion

A couple hundred Carson City area residents gathered outside the Governor’s Mansion Saturday to protest Governor Steve Sisolak’s plan to slowly let Nevadans get back to working, playing and shopping. But the crowd wanted change NOW as they waved their signs and American flags.  There were also a lot of State Troopers, Carson City and Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputies monitoring the protest .  For the most part the protesters were pretty much well behaved but their signs were emphatic – they want Nevada to return to normalcy NOW…not in six months. The state is expected to begin easing restrictions starting May 15th.  Gaming establishments will remain closed for the time being.

Medical experts continue to warn that suddenly opening up the country would very likely trigger a new wave of Covid-19 virus infections causing America’s hospitals to overflow with new victims along with a steep increase in deaths.  But the crowd seemed oblivious to those warnings.  They just want to get back to work and back to normal.

There were no rebuttals to the protests.  Law enforcement stood by patiently on scene keeping the peace and Nevada’s First Family’s home safe and secure. There were no arrests. It was the third in a series of protests here in the Capital City.  See photos below.

Protesters started gathering late morning. They want things back to normal.

Crowd was kept off the Governor’s Mansion property.

They meant business…

Sheriff Furlong and quite a number of State, Carson City and Douglas County law enforcement officers were determined to keep the peace…

The crowd’s mood was quite transparent…

The crowd was full of flags and demands for a return to normalcy.

Home-made sign captures the mood of the crowd…

Slowly the crowd began to dissipate.

The protesters left the Governor’s Mansion around 2:30pm. The word is that there will be more protests.
