Noted Utah activist Eric Moutsos will give a presentation, “Conscience & the Constitution“, Wednesday, March 3, at 7pm at the Cotton Town Village Dance Hall, 25 N 300 W, in Washington City. The event is free and is hosted by WashCo based Citizens For Constitutional Government and is co-sponsored by UtahStandardNews.com. Seating is very limited. There is an event link on Facebook to make reservations or you can just show up and hope for a seat.
Eric Moutsos has been one of Utah’s most controversial and effective public figures. In 2015, he resigned from his position as a Salt Lake City Police Department motorcycle officer rather than participate in the Utah Pride Parade in 2015.
In 2020, he founded Utah Business Revival (UBR) in an effort to help small businesses survive Utah’s mandatory shutdowns, including the Pioneer Day celebration here in Washington City last July at Staheli Farms, which drew around 6,000 people.
Despite dire warnings of “Hospitals will be overrun and desperate patients could die without ventilators”, and “You’re going to destroy this beautiful city”, there was NO spike in new infections and deaths. Actually, the opposite happened with a notable decrease in COVID cases.
Eric planned and executed America’s first public concert after COVID19, inviting country music superstar Collin Ray to Utah for a free concert in Cedar City. UBR statewide events have drawn tens of thousands of liberty-loving Utahns together in spite of government shutdowns, and against Utah Department of Health dictates. The events have aided hundreds of small businesses that participated without charge.
He made and produced the documentary, “Nonessential” which focuses on the devastating effects COVID-19 has had on small businesses, and travels the US providing free showings. He also produced two hilarious videos, Mask Fun in Walmart, and Airplane Mask Hack, in which he shows how to not get harassed & NOT wear a mask, by eating a cookie for a 3 hour plane ride. His videos can be viewed on his YouTube channel
Today, he organizes protests against masks, quarantine measures, and the recently distributed Coronavirus vaccine. He has planned and executed multiple rallies against government overreach at Utah’s state capital and also works against anything to do with the Black Lives Matters movement and having LGBTQ rainbow flags in Utah schools.
He is also the author of “Dispatched” which chronicles his experiences as a police officer and sheds light on the fundamental problems plaguing police agencies across the Nation.
The people of Utah named Eric “Utahan of the year (2020)” in a Salt Lake Tribune poll but the trib immediately overruled the public and gave the award to the health care workers.
Eric lives in Washington City, Utah, with his wife and their four children.
