A number of businesses held a protest at Adelup earlier this afternoon against the new lightened restrictions of the lockdown.

In the new restrictions, establishments such as retail and personal care are able to open with a 25% capacity and restaurants strictly doing outdoor dining only.

Bars, on the other hand, were not mentioned in the new restrictions.

Gov. Lou Leon Guererro has been in a tussle with the local business community regarding financial support since the pandemic lockdown began.

Jeff Pleadwell, owner of Jeff’s Pirate Cove, says this protest is about constitutional rights being violated.

After filing a class action lawsuit against GovGuam, Livehouse and The Shady Lady Business owner Thomas Peinhopf set up a gofundme page to help pay for the legal fees of the lawsuit he filed against GovGuam.
