"We believe that The Governor of The State has, far beyond its constitutional authority in shutting down the company and order people to stay home," organizer Tyler Miller says of the site of The State capitol.
in mid-March, Washington Governor Jay Inslee announced an emergency proclamation, many of the mirrors of the exhibited around The World ; close to restaurants and bars and the prohibition of large gatherings.
But the protesters say that it was unconstitutional.
"The State Constitution says that The Right of The People peaceably to assemble, it will never be shortened. We believe that the (emergency coronavirus) announcements that The Governor hurt here," Mr Miller says.
"I've even self-quarantine for 14 days back to the beginning of this me, as if I had a disease that mirrored some of the symptoms," he says.
"the fact That I do not protest means that I think it is a good idea to meetings, I just believe that the government has No Authority to prohibit. "
During The Crisis , Mr Miller has also been able to continue his work as a mechanical engineering technician with the U.S. Navy.
He says what angered him, what he feels is an un-American power to spread by the Democratic Governor.
The restrictions differ from state to state, and over 20 States had the protests against the measures. These demonstrations vary in size from a few dozen people to thousands.
they come as the United States is still very much in the grip of The Crisis .
It has Not Yet been a sustained decline in the numbers of US dead in connection with Covid-19 and yet the hustle and bustle to restrictions only from those on the street, but by politicians.
"It was an overreaction by The State governments in connection with the compulsory shut downs, shelter in place, and so on," he says.
If it is set, The State representatives, the tens of thousands of people have died across the country, and that it would not have been a lot more if restrictions were in place, he rejects the idea.
"this is something That you are going to say in the situation, no matter what, that it may more deaths," says Becker, who is also a qualified doctor.
"You", it saves only take a life' argument, and I would say that if I'd be driving, 20mph, instead of the 50 hours are miles, not, it is possible that I might kill someone, and you can get the views of all aspects of our life, the way. But our whole way of life in This Country would collapse, and we can't live that way. "
In neighboring South Dakota , one of those who had died with the coronavirus Bob Glanzer, a state representative.
"He was very caring, listening type of individual-and certainly a large part of his life was faith. He will be sorely missed in the legislature," said party colleague, Jean Hunhoff .
representatives Hunhoff describes how she and other legal members of fringed flags in the route of Mr. Glanzer's funeral procession, waving American and South Dakota .
There were social distancing measures in place for the memorial ceremony, although South Dakota is one of the few countries where a country-wide, to home, to never have been imposed.
It was a criticism of States such as South Dakota , have refused, on the topic of " state-wide-shut-down policies, in spite of the coronavirus outbreaks there.
polls show the majority of Americans, are always imposed on or in favour of measures to try to curb the spread of The Virus . And some are vehemently against the protests.
"These protests here are so disheartening. With No One social distancing and the wearing of masks do, and they all say they are outraged. I don't know if this is a problem somewhere else in The World . "
But the posters in the demonstrations decrying the interference of the government suggest that the stakeholders feel there are bigger problems in the game, as the Public Health .
"skepticism of government is a deep strain In America . It waxes and wanes, even if we are in a time where it's been a while grow," says Theda Skocpol , author, and professor of government and sociology at Harvard University .
With respect to the anti-shutdown protests, Professor Skocpol said, it is a political attitude and not the economy, is definitely the Driving Force .
"you don't see the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the pioneer here. These are ideological forces in the game, with some of the professionally run conservative advocacy groups behind the protests," Professor Skocpol says.
"her thing is to ensure that the Americans do not trust the government. You don't have to worry whether the motives of The People on earth are exactly the same as yours. You are probably not. I think most of The People at the protests are just passionate Donald-Trump-Fans. "
While some of the protests say they are there because they are losing money during the shutdown, Trumpf-2020 flags, caps and T-shirts were very clear, particularly to the large demonstrations in States, the Democratic governors run. You have yourself the appearance of a small Trump, star.
The politicians most vocally calling for the shutdown to be lifted now, as Dr. Rick Becker of North Dakota , especially the Republicans. All the governors not to impose the stay At Home jobs, as The Governor of South Dakota , to include The President of the party.
"Donald Trump is really not so mysterious about what he thinks, he sort of, he says. I think that there is a lot of evidence that he is concerned that this terrible pandemic, and his treatment of the early stages, combined with the economic impact that could sink his presidency," she says.
"you can't expect him, his party and those who support him, sit back and take it easy, So What 's Plan B or C? It is to go from to accuse Obama, the Chinese, WHO now blame those who leave there are restrictions. "
in fact, in the last few weeks, Donald Trump has supported the protesters openly.
But the Mixed Messages from the White house were a feature of this crisis. After signaling that he wanted some democratic-run States "exempt" and opened, The President said he was "unhappy" when the Republican Governor of Georgia, the decision for the re-opening of the economy.
