Screenshot taken from the video (Screenshot via Youtube) Protesters for and against a school mask mandate pushed, shoved, and fought one another in Lee County, Florida after the school district’s superintendent required students and teachers to wear masks for 30 days.

A school board meeting in one Florida community turned physical this week, with protestors for and against a mask mandate pushing, shoving, and fighting one another.

On Monday, protesters in Lee County gathered outside of the school district headquarters in Fort Myers, where the board was discussing a 30-day mask mandate imposed by the superintendent earlier that day. The two sides brought dueling megaphones and signs that read “Free Kids Faces” and “Save Our Students,” according to news reports. At one point, the anti-mask protesters chanted “we will not comply.”

Local television news reported that “people are pushing and shoving each other outside of this meeting,” and that Lee sheriff’s deputies were breaking up physical fights. A local NBC affiliate captured video of what appeared to be a man and a woman attempting to hit one another.

At one point, a woman shoved two doctors into the parking lot while they were attempting to enter the meeting to speak in favor of the mask mandate. Video of the encounter provided to National Review showed that prior to that encounter, a pro-mask protester slapped at the megaphone of an anti-mask protester. One of the doctors, Tasha Wallace, then appears to have bumped into the anti-mask protester’s arm. That’s when another woman chest-bumped the two doctors off the sidewalk and into the parking lot.

“I was just trying to make my way to the door so I could come in and fill a comment card, and a woman stood in front of me and bumped me out of the way,” Wallace told a local NBC reporter. Attempts by National Review to reach her on Wednesday were unsuccessful.
