BOSTON (WWLP) — A large group of protesters gathered outside of the Massachusetts Statehouse in Boston Monday afternoon to push for the reopening of the state.

Protesters gathered close to one another, carrying American flags and signs with phrases saying “reopen Massachusetts,” “back to work” and “dear governor stop breaking the law.”

Massachusetts non-essential businesses were originally scheduled to re-open Monday, but last week Governor Charlie Baker ordered them to remain closed for two more weeks as cases and deaths continue to rise. Non-essential businesses are scheduled to reopen May 18 as well as the social distancing order.
