The Canadian Freedom Convoy of truckers has officially inspired a similar American movement.
The Great American Patriot Project (GAPP), a conservative political action committee, has partnered with American truck convoys to send truckers to Washington, D.C. in a protest against vaccine mandates, similar to the movement happening in Ottawa, Canada.
Starting points for the truckers include Columbus and Cleveland, Ohio, as well as Fresno, California and Minot, North Dakota. There is also a “Central Southeast Route” which includes multiple starting points in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and North Carolina. The ultimate goal is to reach America’s capital on March 6.
In an email blast sent on Wednesday, GAPP says that truckers and medical workers on the frontlines will gather to “exercise their constitutional rights peacefully, legally, and lawfully.” It asserts that these people are fighting for a “human rights issue” by opposing “unconstitutional government overreach in regards to mandates.”
Across the country, hundreds of thousands of small businesses have been completely destroyed by the unconstitutional & unscientific lockdowns and mandates. This causes immeasurable damage to the critical infrastructure, supply chains, and ultimately has left millions of wonderful law-abiding citizens in dire straits. The mandates and lockdowns stand in clear violation of almost every human rights law ever written and corporate media, political bodies, and large corporate entities are working together to completely usurp the Constitutional rights of the American people.
The blast encourages people to join the convoy, volunteer in different areas to help the truckers or to donate to the movement. They are also asking for people to share their stories to let “representatives know why you think the convoy is essential as well as issues you personally want your representatives in Washington to recognize.”
The PAC even organized a website to visit and donate which also specifically defines the convoy as “a movement of peaceful, non-violent Americans.” Aside from protesting the mandates, this website also gives other grievances and desired changes from the government, including a secure southern border, reopening the Keystone Pipeline, becoming energy independent and fighting agricultural regulations.
Erica Knight, spokeswoman for GAPP, told Fox News that she doesn’t “think that anybody wants to be told what to do.” She added, “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.”
