,There was a strange sight on the streets of Vancouver last Sunday. Dozens of silent masked protesters slowly wandered through downtown with signs proclaiming that “hugs are dangerous,” “politicians never lie,” “this is all for your protection,” and “wear your mask.”
Alexander (Sasha) Lasarev and Nikolai Thompson were the visionaries behind this unique freedom rally, inspired by John Carpenter’s 1998 cult classic, They Live.Seeing the public’s resistance to the contrarian approach of past lockdown protests sparked the idea to have protesters carry signs confirming commonly espoused beliefs about the pandemic lockdowns.
