Protest crowd

With much of Anchorage back in lockdown mode after the latest emergency order issued by Acting Mayor Austin Quinn-Davidson, area residents are planning to voice their opposition at the upcoming Anchorage Assembly meeting.

A notice of the Dec. 8 protest is circulating on Facebook, asking residents to help “End the Lockdown!”

The planned gathering is only the latest in a long string of rallies, rolling caravans and protests outside the Anchorage Assembly Chambers and City Hall, which had drawn hundreds of participants since this past spring.

Anchorage is currently under shutdown orders that include the shuttering of all in-door service for bars, restaurants, diners and other eating establishments. It also completely closes theaters, bowling allies and most other entertainment venues, while allowing day cares and day camps to operate at full capacity.

At the Dec. 8 meeting the Anchorage Assembly will consider an ordinance introduced by Assembly members Jamie Allard and John Weddleton to terminate the citywide emergency proclamation and thereby rescind Quinn-Davidson’s emergency powers to enact mandates. It’s unlikely, however, that the Assembly would take this action as the pro-shutdown members enjoy a solid majority.

The meeting begins at 5 p.m. in the Assembly Chambers at the Loussac Library. The public may participate in person, through written comments emailed to, or by phone.

    Mail in ballots and dominion voting systems got us to this point of being ruled by progressives.

    Begging them for our freedom will have a predictable outcome.

    When will we tackle the real problem?

    E-mail testimony sent, 2020 = year of justice,
    “Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret—it only causes harm. For evildoers shall be cut off; But those who wait on the LORD, They shall inherit the earth” Psalm 37:7-9.

  • Dan O says:

    My wife and I will be there. The orders are UNLAWFUL. They violate the Anchorage Municipal Charter 10.03 which requires three quarters of the Assembly to vote for an emergency ordinance for it to pass. Only seven of the ten Assembly members voted for the most recent ordinance, which means IT DID NOT PASS. Without a valid emergency ordinance in place there can be no emergency orders issued by the mayor. If we do not stand up for the rights explicitly granted to us by the city charter and state and US Constitutions, we will lose them forever. Please join us there!
