Truckers vow to shut down Washington
Has Facebook shut down the truckers?
The “1 million Truckers to shut down America” group was the creation of a concerned citizen and former trucker, Zeeda Andrews. The group had a Facebook page which appeared to be going viral. Postings on this reporter’s Facebook page where extensive and each day brought an expansion of the effort. On September 23, 2013, the group’s Facebook page was suddenly removed. At the time that the page was taken down, “Truckers to shut down America” had accumulated 86,000 plus ‘likes’. It is not known for certain that Facebook took down the site, but given the progressive nature of some of its founders, it is entirely possible. It has been reported on “Freedom Outpost” and elsewhere that the problems started with Facebook over the use of “God bless America”. The group has created a website to promote its event which is ridefortheconstitution.org,
Grassroots group to protest the corrupting of the US Constitution
The “1 million truckers to shut down America” group plans to use their vehicles to shut down Washington, D.C. on October 11th through October 13, 2013. It calls for a massive inflow of tractor-trailers. The purpose of the shutdown would be to call attention to the politician’s corruption of the Constitution. The group has called for truckers to shut down across the country and they have invited the public to participate by refusing to conduct any business on that weekend. The group has gained the support of "Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment”, who planned events during that period. Recently Canadian truckers have also shown interest in participating in Toronto.
The Town Criers intend to support this demonstration
The Town Criers, a committee of the Saint Augustine Tea Party, will participate in this protest by distributing Constitutions on St. George Street and carrying appropriate supportive signage. [See “A look at Town Crier’s history” in this publication August 26, 2013]
