WATCH: 7 moms trespassed from Volusia County School Board meeting over refusal to wear masks

VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. — Volusia County Schools trespassed seven mothers from its board meeting today over their refusal to wear a face mask.

This is footage of mothers being trespassed and forcibly ejected from the Volusia County Board of Education in Florida. 7 women and I refused to wear a mask at the district meeting. The meeting was being held in Volusia County, which has NO mask mandate. The property we were on is owned by the county. Our governor, Ron Desantis, put out a directive that no Florida resident should receive a penalty, fine, or citation for not wearing a mask in a public place. We were In a public place. Trespassing a person is a penalty!!!! We were forcibly pushed out of the room and are told we cannot return to the property for 365 days. THAT IS A PENALTY.
