A movement of civil disobedience was recently initiated, but the best part is that it was carried out by children.
In protest of Washington’s “sledding ban,” kids and adults came out in force yesterday and went sledding down Capitol Hill just to make a point.
As Mad World News previously reported, pencil pushers in Washington decided to put a ban on the American pastime as “more than 20,000 sledding injuries occur in the U.S. each year,” according to The Hill. However, it seems that America is growing tired of big government pushing them around and decided a recent snow storm was the perfect opportunity to make a point.
After schools were cancelled for the day, parents organized a protest, and they all brought their kids to go sledding in Congress’s back yard. After all, what kind of monsters would actually stop children from having some good ol’ fashioned fun?
Parent Tim Krepp, who helped organize the event, boasted, “This is a great day for sledding and democracy.”
Although the kids may have been oblivious to the protest, the parents were more than clear in their intent. “We come here every snow day,” said parent Kat Cummins. “This is our neighborhood, and we want to sled.”
People also took to Twitter to voice how ridiculous they thought Washington was being with regards to sledding.
Fellow parent Jason Petty added, “There are not many other hills in the Capitol Hill area that are that great for sledding.”
