    On February 7, 2016 at approximately 11:45 am, two sets of protesters chained together by their necks sitting in the middle of one of the inner access roads, which runs parallel to Highway 301 North. They deliberately positioned themselves on all lanes of traffic to obstruct the flow of traffic. There was another group of individuals standing outside of the State Fair property, peacefully protesting on the sidewalk.

    The chained protesters were asked several times to unchain themselves and leave or they would be arrested. When the protesters refused to comply, Hillsborough County deputies cut the chains and the four protesters were taken into custody for trespass after warning and transported to Orient Road Jail.
