LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – A bunch of protesters took to the streets in downtown La Crosse on Friday afternoon.
They marched in opposition to the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade.
The group marched down third Street, blocking site visitors in a single lane.
The organizer of the protest says it’s a technique to get their message out.
“Simply marching on the sidewalks … sure we’re a bunch of pedestrians and it’s plenty legal. There’s nothing disruptive about that, and I believe in disruption for change,” mentioned Organizer Cameron Dull. “People will conflate that to violence, but that is not at all what that has to mean. Civil disobedience and being a bother is the way to get yourself heard.”
The La Crosse Youth Socialist League organized the march.
Dull says the group’s members are highschool and college-aged members of the neighborhood.
