(AbsoluteNews.com) – Canadian truck drivers have spent weeks protesting the draconian COVID-19 restrictions in the country. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government recently started punishing the truckers in an attempt to silence them. The Freedom Convoy’s message has spread to the United States.
On Tuesday, February 15, Newsmax TV’s “The Balance” host Eric Bolling announced that a convoy of 1,000 American truckers will drive to Washington, DC, before the end of the month. The group of truckers dubbed the “People’s Convoy,” is headed to the country’s capital to protest the vaccine mandates.

Bolling also revealed, unlike the Canadian truckers who had their money seized, the People’s Convoy will be completely financially independent. Maureen Steele, one of the organizers of the convoy, said they brought on Exemplar Financial to oversee the fundraising effort. The financial experts reportedly set the fundraising up in a way that will ensure their “funds are not able to be frozen or hijacked,” Steele said. However, she did not explain any other details.
There’s some concern the convoy will make US supply chain issues even worse than they are now. However, according to activists, sometimes it takes a bit of disruption to set things straight.
The People’s Convoy will start in California and make its way to DC. Those who want to get involved can visit the convoy’s website.
