Protesters across California took to the streets last night in opposition to Gavin Newsom’s latest nightly ban, which went into effect Saturday night to squeeze back on coronavirus resuscitation cases.
In Huntington Beach, a crowd of about 400 – who called themselves “Curfew Breakers” – gathered in front of the city’s largest pier to protest the curfew, which took effect at 6 p.m. 22.00.
By midnight, the audience had largely jumped out.

A protest was held outside Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s official residence Friday in a demonstration proposal such as “Curfew Protest Block Party: No More Lockdown.”
The restrictions last for three weeks. During this time, these companies can only offer take-out, drive thru and delivery services. Wineries and breweries are allowed to continue their retail activities in compliance with current protocols.
County officials say they are announcing even tougher measures, including a possible shutdown if cases rise further.

Golden State’s latest restrictions require people to stay home from 6 p.m. 22 to kl. 5, unless they are responding to an emergency, shopping for groceries, picking up pickup, or walking their dogs. The month-long curfew can be extended if rapidly deteriorating trends do not improve.
The curfew applies to 41 of the state’s 58 counties, which are in the “purple” level, the most restrictive of four state levels, allowing different stages of economic reopening. These counties comprise 94% of the nearly 40 million people living in the most populous U.S. state.
