People upset with the Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at -home order locked up traffic around the Michigan Capitol in Lansing Wednesday afternoon.

WXYZ-TV is reporting that vehicles snarled traffic around the capitol complex as part of Operation Gridlock.

The protest was organized by the Michigan Conservative Coalition, who says Gov. Whitmer's stay-at-home orders go too far.

The Michigan Conservative Coalition website says:

We are all concerned for those afflicted with COVID 19.  Yes, many of the personal behaviors we have been reminded to use are good practices.  Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Stay home if you are sick.  

That said, Michiganders are fed up!

Our Governor and her allies are infecting ALL of us with their radical, progressive agenda.  There is NO reasoned and public plan to promote our overall physical and economic health!

Dope stores?  Open.  Abortion clinics? Open. Churches?  Shut down.  Local businesses? Going broke!

Many have asked us: 'What should I do?  I will go bankrupt if this continues.'

FOX2 Detroit is reporting that hundreds, perhaps thousands of people have driven into the area to protest.
