ADELANTO, Calif. (VVNG.com) — American truckers and allies poured into Adelanto Stadium on Wednesday, February 23, to kick-off The People’s Convoy, a unified transcontinental movement that will travel from the California to the East Coast.
According to a press release, the People’s convoy is about freedom and unity: the truckers are riding unified across party and state lines and with people of all colors and creeds – Christians, Muslims, Jews, Sikhs, Mormons, Agnostics, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans, Republican, Democrats.
The People’s Convoy Message:
The last 23 months of the COVID-19 pandemic have been a rough road for all Americans to travel: spiritually, emotionally, physically, and not least financially.
“With the advent of the vaccine and workable therapeutic agents, along with the hard work of so many sectors that contributed to declining COVID-19 cases and severity of illness, it is now time to re-open the country. The average American worker needs to be able to end-run the economic hardships of the last two years, and get back to the business of making bread – so they can pay their rents and mortgages and help jumpstart this economy. To that end, it’s time for elected officials to work with the blue collar and white-collar workers of America and restore accountability and liberty – by lifting all mandates and ending the state of emergency – as COVID is well-in-hand now, and Americans need to get back to work in a free and unrestricted manner.”-The People’s convoy
Scheduled to start at 10:00 a.m., truckers would first hear words of encouragement and blessings from a group of speakers including FLCCC President Dr. Pierre Kory and Godspeak Church Pastor Rob McCoy before departing on the 11-day convoy.
‘Freedom-loving supporters’ are welcome to participate by either attending the launch gathering or by getting in their own vehicles and following the big rigs from Adelanto Stadium toward the east coast.
According to an NPR article, The Pentagon has approved the deployment of 700 unarmed National Guard troops to the nation’s capital as it prepares for the trucker convoys that are protesting the pandemic restrictions.
“The troops would be used to assist with traffic control during demonstrations expected in the city in the coming days, the Pentagon said. Four hundred Guard members from the District of Columbia Guard will be joined by 300 Guard members from other states, according to the statement.”
