Facebook Shuts Down Page For Truckers’ Protest – But They’re Heading To DC Anyways!
September 29, 2013 2:43pm PST
1 million truckers plan to shut down DC to protest the government and its “bulls**t.”
The group was gathering attention using social media, primarily Facebook.
But just as the group was picking up steam, their Facebook page called “Truckers to Shut Down America” has was pulled off the web. The page admins were banned for using “God Bless America.
Yes, you read that correctly.
In response to this, the group started the website RideForTheConstitution.org to promote their event.
As reported by Freedom Outpost:
Facebook will allow pages promoting jihad, Islamist ideas and any other foul disgusting thing you can think of but will pull pages like Truckers to Shut Down America and Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children for promoting conservative and/or Christian beliefs. That makes sense when the owners and admins of Facebook are in cahoots with government and in bed with big money men.
With the social networking page nowhere to be found, it is now up to the old-fashioned, hit the pavement, door to door grassroots effort. We can also visit the Facebook page, Citizens in Support of the Washington Trucker Convoy, to promote it, pass it along until Facebook shuts it down.
On October 11, the group plans on shutting down Washington, DC for three days in a row.
They are doing this to protest the Obama administration’s “corruption against the Constitution.”
The group now has a new Facebook page, where they are recouping the fans they lost. The new page’s description says, “The American people are sick and tired of the corruption that is destroying America! We therefore declare a GENERAL STRIKE on the weekend of October 11-13, 2013! Truck drivers will not haul freight! Americans can strike in solidarity with truck drivers!”
Zeeda Andrews, one of the founders of the protest, said, “If anyone can help save the country, it’s truckers. Just like the truckers, Americans are sick and tired of what’s going on in this country. It’s time to get up there and make a change. If something happens, it’s because we all let it. We have a right to address these issues and bring them to Washington, D.C. in a peaceful manner.”
“Most Americans are 100 percent on board with this,” she continued. “It takes everyone coming together to say: ‘No I do not consent to this lawlessness. I don’t support your taking away my rights.’”
Do you support these truckers?
