Update: Week Five of no escorts

“Y’all can’t be doin that!” – Gov Andy

As many Kentuckians carefully weigh how and when it may be safe to resume certain activities, the protesters remain consistent in their lack of consideration for the health and safety of themselves or others. Escorts observing from vehicles this week continued to see a variety of behaviors that go against the state, federal, and CDC recommendations. This week, the owners of EMW spoke out, encouraging Louisville Metro Council to bring back the safety zone that was in place following a blockade by extremists, which took place three years ago on Mother’s day weekend, a time known for large protests.

The inaction of Louisville Metro Council, and LMPD has become all but laughable, as they take turns passing around the responsibility to enforce public safety standards. Meanwhile, people still need to go to the clinic. To help further document the problem, the clinic and Metro Council have asked that people report the gatherings to 311 using any of these options:
Tweet @loumetro311
Email metro.311@louisvilleky.gov
Report on the metro 311 App
Submit a report at: https://louisvilleky.gov/government/metro311

Here are just a few of the scenes captured by observing escorts this week:

Tuesday 5/5 – 14 protesters total
Wednesday 5/6 – 10 protesters total
Thursday 5/7 – 12 protesters total
Friday 5/8 – 22 protesters total
Saturday 5/9 – 54 protesters total
