Everything we saw at Tampa's protest calling for Florida to end the coronavirus shutdown

Organized by a local anti-vaccine group, hundreds of protesters gathered in Tampa Sunday afternoon calling for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to immediately reopen the state despite the coronavirus pandemic. Pro-Trump posters, anti-abortion signs and Gadsden ("Don't tread on me") flags could be seen, while protesters stood shoulder-to-shoulder, ignoring local rules on social distancing.
