A group of protesters stormed the sand on Fort Lauderdale Beach to voice their objections to South Florida leaders’ decision.
“We want to exercise our rights, and the least they could do is let us be on the beach on the Fourth of July,” said protester James McOwen.
One of the protesters held up a sign that reads “My body, my choice.”
