On Thursday, WBZ News reported that anti-vaccine protesters forced a meeting of the New Hampshire Executive Council at Saint Anselm College to be canceled.
“The council was set to discuss federal funding and vaccination efforts around the state, but anti-vaccine protesters argued that New Hampshire was giving up their sovereignty by doing so,” said the report. “Some protestors were able to make their way inside the building where the meeting was supposed to take place. Hundreds more were turned away outside.”
In an angry series of tweets, Republican Gov. Chris Sununu denounced the “unruly” protesters, saying that “intimidation tactics will not succeed and there is no place for such behavior in New Hampshire.”
This incident marks one of many around the country in which people demonstrating against COVID-19 public health measures have forced public officials to shut down a meeting out of safety concerns. Last week, a crowd of anti-mask demonstrators forced the school board office of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho to lock down.
