Preparations are underway for an anti-vaccine-mandate protest at the National Mall in Washington, but citizens across Europe and Down Under have been holding mass demonstrations for some time now, including over the holiday weekend.
The march in Washington on Jan. 23 will begin at 11:30 a.m. at the Washington Monument and conclude at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, about one mile away. Called Defeat the Mandate DC, it's organized by The Unity Project, Children's Health Defense and the International Alliance of Physicians and Medical Scientists.
"The mandates are un-American. Stop the mass firings. Stop segregating by vaccination status. Stop calling Americans 'unpatriotic' for making a personal medical choice," the organizers declare on their website.
In New York City on Monday, protesters against vaccine mandates crossed the Brooklyn Bridge chanting "We the people will not comply."
