People Protest against Masks – level 2

23-09-2020 15:00

The whole world is fighting with the coronavirus. In many countries, people must cover their faces and keep a distance from each other.

However, some people are starting to get angry because they do not like to wear face masks for many weeks. They refuse to wear the masks.

In a store in Florida USA, a group of people protested against face masks. They marched through the store, and they shouted at other people. They were not wearing face masks. Other people were very surprised when the protesters shouted at them to take their masks off.

In the past, the US president did not want to wear a mask, and he refused to wear it during a meeting with journalists. However, he changed his opinion, and he urged people to wear masks in public and to keep a safe distance from each other.

Difficult words: refuse (to say no), march (to walk like soldiers), urge (to strongly suggest something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
