MOVEMENT MOVES SOUTH: US Truckers Organize Stateside Protest to Descend on DC

Canada’s ‘Freedom Trucker’ movement moved south of the border this week as countless drivers are now planning massive convoys to head to Washington, DC in the weeks ahead.

“Taking a cue from truckers bordering America’s north, a political action committee will partner with truck convoys to protest what it deems as overreaching government COVID-19 restrictions and mandates. The Great American Patriot Project on Wednesday asked volunteers to contribute, join or support a convoy of truckers slated to travel to Washington D.C. next month,” reports Fox News.

“I don’t think that anybody wants to be told what to do,” Erica Knight, spokeswoman for the PAC, told Fox News. “They don’t want to deal with these mandates and it’s kind of a way to stand up for all the American people against it.”

On Monday, Canadian Prime Minister Justice Trudeau invoked his nation’s Emergencies Act, a historic move that gives the federal government sweeping powers to remove the ‘Freedom Truckers’ from Ottawa and international border crossings.
