Medical freedom rally Hood River

‘Medical Freedom’: Demonstrators gathering in support of “medical freedom” rally at 12th and May streets in Hood River Saturday, Sept. 5. Signs protested mask mandates (“Unmask our Kids”) and vaccine mandates for some (“No jab, No job, No Way”) as well as gun rights. According to organizer Kristin Wilhelm, the sponsor of the rally was the unaffiliated group “Reds in the Hood,” which she said was formed in 2015 for Americans. In the background is Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital, whose parent company Providence Health mandated the vaccine for all caregivers Aug. 3.
