UPDATED: New Mexicans holding July 31 statewide school mask protest

While a majority of states in the country have no school mask mandate, New Mexico’s schoolchildren are still being forced to wear masks, even when playing outdoor sports in 100+ degree heat, according to the group New Mexico Freedoms Alliance.

“It’s not healthy for children to breathe through masks because the reduced oxygen and increased carbon dioxide is dangerous,” the group contends, adding that Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s “recent change to allow vaccinated athletes to be unmasked is not enough; ALL students must be allowed to unmask, regardless of their vaccination status.”

So, on Saturday, July 31, citizens are organizing protests against school mask policies statewide, from Albuquerque to Carlsbad. So far, seven cities are participating, but the list of areas joining in the effort is expected to grow.

If your location is not on the list, the organization asks citizens to volunteer to lead a protest in their underrepresented area. “Select a high-visibility location, and then we will help spread the word, make a flyer for you to use, help with press/media outreach, etc. Please email Sarah at concernedfornm@gmail.com to get involved,” writes the Alliance.

The group has organized anti-forced school masking rallies previously across the state, with much success. But as the school year comes right around the corner, the added pressure on the governor is critical in stopping these mandates from continuing.

  1. Good. As the Rush Replacements have been saying, we need the Moms of America to stand up against this nonsense.

  2. Phillis Wheatley’s poem on tyranny and slavery, 1772

    . . . No more, America, in mournful strain
    Of wrongs, and grievance unredress’d complain,
    No longer shall thou dread the iron chain,
    Which wanton Tyranny with lawless hand
    Had made, and with it meant t’enslave the land.

    Should you, my lord, while you peruse my song,
    Wonder from whence my love of Freedom sprung,
    Whence flow these wishes for the common good,
    By feeling hearts alone best understood,
    I, young in life, by seeming cruel fate
    Was snatch’d from Afric’s fancy’d happy seat:
    What pangs excruciating must molest,
    What sorrows labour in my parent’s breast?
    Steel’d was that soul and by no misery mov’d
    That from a father seiz’d his babe belov’d:
    Such, such my case. And can I then but pray
    Others may never feel tyrannic sway?

    What American child will ever write such a poem of freedom again and if one should, how many centuries will it take? 😭


  3. Y’all are idiots, masks save lives, stop being a scaredy cat and put the piece of cloth over your mouth cowards. Just because you can’t understand it doesn’t mean it doesn’t work!

    1. Greetings to you, Chris.
      I agree that masks do have use, if you have symptoms and should probably be at home anyway, but in the case if children, there is harm. Studies with children, from Germany and the US show that when wearing a cloth mask, within 3 minutes, the CO2 blood levels rise to dangerous levels. These children’s brains are developing, starving them of oxygen is harmful. We already know that getting covid, as a child, has almost zero harm, and natural antibody development, as a result of infection, is probably better protection in the long run.

    2. Lets think about this logically, you believe masks work and other people have different opinions and reasons for not believing that but only yours matters right? you call names because you do not have the intellect to understand otherwise, so Chris you are the idiot coward 🤣

  4. The typical uninformed, follow the sheep, who would rather feed off the teat of government type of person, instead of standing independently and worrying about yourself. The so called mask that Fraudster Fauci said must be worn, was not done out of concern for you, or others’ health. It is scientifically proven that these “fake masks” can not and will not stop a virus, but will serve as a breeding ground for viruses and bacteria. To add to all this, these are attempting to be managed under an EUA and therefore every American Citizen has a right to refuse without harm.

  5. mask do not work, when will you learn that this is a ploy of the communist in control of our country to make us subevent to there control. “a community on an unthinking course towards mass destruction.”
