Protestors from the Freedom Convoy are expected to head into Washington, D.C., sometime this week as truckers in the U.S. oppose President Biden’s federal COVID and vaccine mandates, in an effort to emulate their trucking brothers in Canada.
Bob Bolus, who is an organizer for one of these convoys, told the media in D.C. that they plan to “squeeze” America’s capital in the same fashion a “boa constrictor” would, and that they plan to shut down the city. He said they will be taking their trucks to the main beltway to shut it down.
Bolus himself owns a towing and truck parts business in Scranton, Pennsylvania. He said he is heading to D.C. Wednesday morning and will make his way to the Beltway at the capital.
After that, he is hoping to meeting other convoys of truckers that are heading to D.C. this week, just like “The People’s Convoy,” which is coming from California starting on Wednesday.
Bolus added, “I’ll give you an analogy of that of a giant boa constrictor. That basically squeezes you, chokes you and it swallows you, and that’s what we’re going to do to D.C.”
Bolus said he isn’t sure what number of truckers will be joining him, but he said there’s interest from hundreds of other people.
Marueen Steele, the organizer of the convoy in California, said that there will be around 1,000 truckers starting their trip east on the 23rd of February. She said even more will being to join them as they make their way across the nation to restore the constitution.
She said that it will start in Barstow, California and then move east on Interstate 40, but wouldn’t give any more details after that due to the security issues.
The People’s Convoy is asking that the government end the national emergency declaration surrounding the COVID pandemic, and give the people back their freedom.
