Ron DeSantis. He has been the Governor of Florida since 2019. He has been quite the personage in the news ever since. Especially since our latest President Biden was selected. I'll not get too far into him, look it up.
Here we have a slightly old story about those poor souls who get trotted out into the media when they protest. Oh, I mean another recent in Florida about their governor:
" Fourteen protesters were arrested on Wednesday after staging a sit-in outside the office of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) to protest new conservative laws in the state, according to the organizers. "
"TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Fourteen people are facing misdemeanor trespassing charges and are banned from the Florida Capitol for the next year after they were arrested while protesting in Gov. Ron DeSantis’ office on Wednesday.
"The people who were arrested were part of a much larger human rights group -- called the Dream Defenders -- that crowded the lobby of the governor’s office for more than six hours.
"The demonstrators said they wanted to protest DeSantis’ approach to governing and demanded to meet with him.
At 7 p.m., police gave the group a 20-minute warning to clear the building. Many of them left, but others stayed, locked arms and started singing.
“Once the building closes, unless you have an office in the Capitol, you’re not allowed to be here,” Florida Department of Law Enforcement spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger said, citing Department of Management Services policy."
10 years ago, Dream Defenders occupied the Florida Capitol in response to the murder of Trayvon Martin. Today, organizers from all across Florida joined them for their “Can’t Ban Us” action, occupying Ron DeSantis’ office in opposition to his fascist agenda pic.twitter.com/E8qLFMEkGr— girlgenius.

Over 30 police officers are lining up to arrest the nonviolent protestors occupying the Governors office. Deny our existence, expect our resistance. pic.twitter.com/vwshmGZ03l— Florida Rising (Text JOINUS to 58123) (@FLRising) May 3, 2023
