Eric Moutsos is a former Salt Lake City Police officer who has lead a series of peaceful demonstrations and gatherings supporting local small businesses. His last big gathering was a series of attempts to host country music star Collin Raye in a benefit concert for local businesses. Moutsos was initially approved by Kaysville Mayor and City Council to allow the concert in Kaysville park. Then the City Council determined that they would not allow the event. He later moved the event to Grantsville and was given a cease and desist order by a local judge.
The same day Eric’s concert was supposed to be held in Grantsville, the Salt Lake City Police and the Salt Lake City’s Mayor’s office was allowing huge demonstrations in the city in opposition to police brutality (which resulted in rioting), Eric’s gathering to promote the opening of local businesses wasn’t permitted by any city and he was issued a court order to stop.
In this discussion, we talk about Eric’s attempts to hold peaceful demonstrations as part of his Utah Business Revival Group.
