Anti-lockdown protests hit Los Angeles today, after making waves across the country. About 50 cars lined up outside of City Hall to honk and hold up signs with messages like "lock up the sick, not the free" and ""the science is clear, re-open California." The protest was organized by a facebook group called Operation Gridlock.

Despite the media attention they're received, anti-lockdown protests are relatively small in the grand scheme of it all. Research shows that the majority of Angelenos (95%) support the city's stay-at-home policy if it means slowing the spread of coronavirus.
