Protesters gather at Oklahoma Capitol objecting to a slew of bills

Local

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Protesters gathered at the Oklahoma Capitol Wednesday afternoon and made their way inside to the building.

The Collegiate Freedom and Justice Coalition came to the capitol to protest a slew of bills including Oklahoma anti-protest bills, anti-abortion bills and the transgender athlete bill.

They did gain entry into the House Chambers but were asked to leave and did.

A few of the group’s leaders were kicked out of the Capitol building.

One of the bills they object to would decriminalize the punishment for people who hit protestors with a vehicle if they think they are in danger.
