A Tactic for American Restaurants Going Belly-Up

I Am Open”: 50,000 Italian Restaurant Owners Plan to Ignore Lockdown

Huge act of civil disobedience plans to conduct business as usual in spite of “anti-Covid” measures

Today – Friday 15th January – over 50,000 restaurants are planning to open, an act of mass civil disobedience against “anti-Covid” lockdown measures which have massively hurt the restaurant business, especially small family-owned businesses.

Spreading through social media under the hashtag #IoOpro (“I am opening”), the movement is largest country-wide act of civil disobedience since lockdowns began.

Italy is “slightly larger than Arizona“—and there are 49 more states. Wouldn’t it be terrific if 50 times as many restaurants in the US were to defy Our Rulers and their despotism over COVIDCon?

Kathleen Sheridan forwarded this story to me; she notes, “It’s good to be reminded that, no matter how much it looks like the new normal is spreading unopposed, it’s not. People all over the world are resisting where they can. That’s what ‘Covid Positive’ is all about.”
