‘We want to jumpstart the economy and reopen the country’: 1,000 vehicles join the People’s Convoy in California and start 11-day cross-country drive to D.C. to protest COVID mandates – fueled by $500,000 in early donations

Scores of truckers began their 11-day trek from California to Washington DC on Wednesday in an effort to protest COVID-19 vaccine and mandates after the cavalcade raised more than $464,000 in donations

The People’s Convoy has called on the federal government to end the National Emergency enacted at the start of the pandemic, which President Joe Biden extended on Friday despite calls from Congress to end it

Organizers and participants argue the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and mandates are unconstitutional and claim the ‘government has forgotten its place’

The organizers also claim the convoy is ‘about freedom and unity,’ noting the truckers are ‘riding unified across party and state lines and with people of all colors and creeds’
