Protesters gather in Pullman, Washington to defy Gov. Inslee proclamation

On September 19, 2020 approximately 25 people assembled in Pullman, Washington at Reaney Park near the Washington State Campus for a ‘1st Amendment Celebration’ in defiance of Gov. Jay Inslee’s proclamation disguised as a city ordinance, called a nuisance party in which any groups of more than 10, who do not social distance or wear masks as per the health department may face fines as well as jail time for non-compliance.

Police Chief Gary Jenkins issued a letter on August 18, 2020 stating his department would start enforcing this policy to ensure public safety. As of this moment 18 citations have been issued which is $250 for the first offense, $500 for the second and after that recipients may face arrest and be charged with a misdemeanor. September 17, 2020 Police Chief Jenkins stated on KLEW TV (Lewiston) he has not been enforcing the governor’s proclamation but the city’s nuisance order and that the 1st Amendment Celebration on September 19, 2020 would be allowed to uphold their 1st Amendment.
