JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - ‘Stop the Steal’ protesters were also at the Mississippi State Capitol on Wednesday.
Carrying signs with messages of ‘Stop the Steal’ and ‘Let Mississippi Vote,’ protesters say they are supporting President Trump.
The group also asked for signatures on petitions asking for a vote on Mississippi’s flag. Some of them carrying the flag with the confederate emblem.
They listened to a message from Trump and say they will continue to make their voices heard.
Holly Scanlon, a Let Mississippi Vote protester, said, “This is not a racial issue. It’s not black, white, yellow, red. This is a Mississippi issue. We can’t let them have our voice because if we give them our voice we enslave ourself to our government. This is our government. They work for us. They work for us. We don’t work for them.”
Scanlon also said, “My president feels like that this election has been totally stolen from him and that the people of our nation need to stand up and do what’s right, and lawsuits need to be filed and we need to stand up for our president. And that’s what we’re here to do today.”
While the protesters were at the State Capitol, some of them signed a petition asking for a vote on the Mississippi flag.
