HELENA — More than two dozen people in Montana have gathered to protest against COVID-19 restrictions, then said the Pledge of Allegiance and prayed outside Democratic Steve Bullock’s office in Helena, officials said.

Conrad Evarts and the Montana Liberty Coalition organized “The Great Escalation” event and posted it on Facebook, the Independent Record reported Friday.

Thirty-two people showed up at Memorial Park on Thursday to peacefully protest before moving up to the state Capitol building.

All of the protestors who were approached by the Independent Record declined to be interviewed.
