Now, Californian’s are planning to join an American protest dubbed ‘The People’s Convoy’ and head to Washington, D.C. this week.
This new demonstration plans to depart from Barstow, California on Interstate 40 on Wednesday, February 23. National organizer of the effort Maureen Steele said she would not disclose the specific location for fear of retribution.
Steele told Newsmax that somewhere around 1,000 trucks are expected to start the trip and she expects more will join in as the convoy heads east.
‘The Canadian convoy was pretty organic when it happened,’ Steele acknowledged. ‘Ours, they had a month’s notice, so our concern is disruptive groups coming in. We’re trying to just prepare for counter-protests and to take safety precautions for that.’
