The American Truckers protest convoy will leave Barstow California on February 23rd and head to Washington DC in time for President Biden’s State of the Union address on March 1st. They will begin with 1,000 truckers joined by other trucks and cars along their way across the country. They expect their numbers to swell to 10,000 before they reach Washington.
The protest is called “The People’s Convoy” and is designed to protest the emergency powers the President has taken during the pandemic and in support of the Constitution and Freedom.
“This is about our rights, as well as the freedom of future generations,” organizers of the convoy wrote onÂ Facebook. “It’s not about political parties, but more so about a government that has forgotten its place and has no regard for our founding fathers’ instructions.”
