A group of protesters gathered outside of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's house on Thursday for "Operation Queen's Castle." The protesters were advocating for reopening Michigan's economy and for those who can work safely to return to work.
"We wanted to send Gretchen Whitmer a message, we didn't want to surrender our liberties just for a little temporary safety," said Brian Pannebecker, who helped organize the protest. "Younger people, healthy people, without putting anybody else in danger, including ourselves, and others in danger, should be able to go back to work."
It is unclear how many people were in attendance at the protest, which follows the "Operation Gridlock" protest that clogged up the streets of Lansing last week.
There is another rally planned for April 30, the day Whitmer's "Stay Home, Stay Safe" order is currently set to expire.
