ST. GEORGE – “Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment” is a national protest that is currently taking place across the United States. To the participants, there is corruption currently taking place in the United States government and they want to raise public awareness. It is a call to action, a call for impeachment of the president.
The temperature was over 100 degrees today, but protesters did not let that hinder their goal. Southern Utahns gathered for protest at Interstate 15’s Exit 6 overpass on Bluff Street beginning at 10 a.m.
“There is support in numbers,” Jody Lynn Wilkerson said, “we are tired of seeing the things that are happening and we want them to change.

The protesters at the St. George overpass said they want to make their motto clear:
“It is not about right or left,” Wilkerson said, “but it’s about what is right and wrong.” The protesters want to band together to make a change: A change for the better, they said.
One major point that protesters across the nation feel is a determining factor to impeach Obama is the fact that the Constitution is not being followed by the government.
“A lot of people in America are fed up with Obama and lawlessness and all of the things he has done to disrespect the Constitution,” Toquerville resident Stefanie Williams said. “I am fed up with Obama and his blatant disregard for the rule of law.”
One protester drove by the protest on Bluff with his wife and jumped out of his car to join the protest to raise awareness.
“I heard about this protest initially on Facebook…There were people here, so I jumped out of the car,” St. George resident Michael Lythgoe said. “A few of us have got to stand up for what’s going on in this country and I am more than willing to stand here.”
Over 30 Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment protests took place today on a national scale. States that participated include Florida, Georgia, New York, Arizona and … Utah.
The St. George protesters are planning to participate in another protest upcoming next Saturday.
