Western PA News

ERIE–(WJET/WFXP)–New guidelines for keeping us all safe are going into effect tonight and many businesses remain closed.

Protests are being planned in Erie and in Harrisburg on Monday to encourage leaders to reopen Pennsylvania’s economy.

Concerned citizens will come together to peacefully protest against lock down restrictions that are continuing beyond May 1st.

One group said that the government mandating sick people to stay home is called quarantine.

The same group said however that the government mandating healthy citizens to stay home, which is also forcing businesses and churches to close, is called tyranny.

The protesters insist that it is not sustainable to continue a lock down because the economic and societal consequences will be irreversible.

The protests in Erie will take place at Perry Square at 3 p.m. Monday, April 20th.
