A liberal activist group is planning a protest this afternoon in front of State Sen. Dave Argall’s office in Pottsville. And a counter-protest could form in opposition to the demonstration.

Schuylkill Indivisible will be protesting the state legislature’s plan for a forensic election audit of the 2020 vote. Argall says he supports this audit.

The local demonstrators are saying the audit is being conducted on false pretenses.

“For the time being, it’s a free country,” Schuylkill Indivisble says in a statement released to The Canary Sunday evening. “But how long will it be, when the results of fair and secure elections, certified by both parties, are challenged and discredited based on a seemingly endless stream of false allegations that court after court has dismissed.”

At Monday afternoon’s protest, members of Schuylkill Indivisible plan to meet in front of Argall’s office and then march to US Rep. Dan Meuser’s office, located in the Losch Plaza building on Progress Ave. The demonstration is planned for 1 p.m.

But Schuylkill Indivisible may not be alone.

A counter-protest may be forming. On Sunday, the conservative activist group Berks County Patriots sent out a call-to-action to its members to gather in Pottsville on Monday to push back against the local group’s narrative. Push back in a figurative sense, of course.

We reached out to Berks County Patriots organizers on Sunday but haven’t received a reply.
