Despite a virtual media blackout, Toronto, Milan, Athens, London, Melbourne, Rio de Janeiro and other cities have seen similar protests amid increasing COVID-19 restrictions across the globe.
This is good news, as people of all nations are returning to their roots, tapping into their own ingenuity and fighting to return power to the people where it belongs.
In New York City, hopeful signs are popping up at business establishments throughout the five boroughs thanks in large part to a small, determined group of business owners.
The video below documents one man’s effort to galvanize his neighborhood by going door-to-door and asking small business owners to post a sign that welcomes all patrons regardless of vaccination status:
The inspiration behind the now viral ‘sign spree’ started with Rocco’s Paticerria and Caffe in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. They were the first to post the sign, in early August, promising inclusion to all patrons, after New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the “Key to NYC,” a plan requiring diners to show proof of COVID vaccination.
Other business owners quickly recognized de Blasio’s “key” would unleash a host of civil rights and privacy issues, and began to posting the same sign in protest.
A group of restaurant owners and small businesses have since teamed up to sue de Blasio over the city-wide order.
At a recent NYC protest, Rob DeLuca, DeLuca’s Italian Restaurant owner and co-founder of Independent Restaurant Owners Association Rescue, asserted, “It is not our responsibility to do the city’s dirty work. We are not the gestapo. We are not the COVID police. We are here to make pasta a serve drinks.”
A number of city and state officials also joined in, calling for an immediate reversal of this “unfair directive.”
