Protests to reopen Pennsylvania

What sort of object is this: text story, photograph, video, audio interview, screenshot, drawing, meme, etc.?

This is a photograph of a protest held to reopen Pennsylvania.

Tell us a story; share your experience. Describe what the object or story you've uploaded says about the pandemic, and/or why what you've submitted is important to you.


As a Pennsylvania resident, I have been keenly aware of the lockdowns and restrictions that have been put in place across the state, as well as the public backlash to them in many parts. For our assignment to blur personal information, I decided to upload this picture of protesters and blur their faces to protect their identities.

Use one-word hashtags (separated by commas) to describe your story. For example: Where did it originate? How does this object make you feel? How does this object relate to the pandemic?

#HST485, #protest, #reopen
