A number of news reports have suggested the anti-lockdown protesters are mainly concerned about "the economy." The organizers of these protests have themselves claimed to be speaking out on behalf of "business owners."

Yet, even a casual glance at the signs appearing at these protests suggest it's inaccurate to claim "the economy" is the anti-lockdown protesters' main concern.

As previously reported by PressProgress, the protests were originally organized by a mysterious group calling itself "Free North Patriots," which appeared out of thin air on April 12 and immediately began promoting "peaceful protests."
