From its former Facebook page, “Truckers to Shutdown America” to “Truckers Ride for the Constitution” side by side with “Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment” plans invasion to the White House on October 11 through 13. Both groups decided to be allies in the aim of restoring the American constitutional republic.
After the controversial removal of the former Facebook page, “Truckers Ride for the Constitution”, which accumulated more than 86,000 “likes”, will trek across the nation to Washington to get the attention of the government with regards to their concern. Meanwhile, the “Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment” group, which gathered over 80,000 “likes” on their Facebook page, will parade and rally simultaneously on overpasses with their flags to make a protest for the impeachment of the American President, Barack Obama. Both groups are also encouraging the general public to join forces with them and “stop corruption” in the nation.
With its other website RideForTheConstitution.org, both groups are inviting not only the general public for support, but also their friends and families to be united as one, starting October 11. The first day of the rally is tentatively scheduled for both Houses of Congress for a session.
The union of the two groups in bringing America back to its former state had been continuously gathering support from their page. From the time of this writing, the page has gathered 29,623 “likes.” Also, according to the website, the Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment founder James Neighbors approached Zeeda Andrews, leader and organizer of Truckers for the Ride Constitution for the said alliance.
“We are going to be out on the overpasses and at truck stops, encouraging the truckers to head to D.C., to join in with the others. They, in exchange, are encouraging their families who are at home to join us on the overpasses”, Neighbors said.
In addition, the group is planning to have a special delivery on the same day of the convoy to Facebook’s corporate headquarters in Menlo Park, California. This is because despite their appeal for the restoration of the former Facebook page from its removal in September 22, the page remains unpublished.
“Ride for the Constitution will now organize a convoy to Facebook corporate headquarters … to coincide with the ride to Washington, D.C. “We fully intend to arrive on corporate America’s doorstep with our original ‘community standards’ guideline in hand – the U.S. Constitution,” the group explained.
Neighbors explained, “The goal is to wake up the sleeping giant, the people of America.” The alliance does not target solely in waking up Americans. The convoy also aims to pressure the House of Congress to speed up and begin with the impeachment process.
With this alliance, some trucking industry critics had condemned the upcoming protest through Facebook. American Trucking Associations spokesman Sean McNally said his group opposes Andrews’ activities. “The American Trucking Associations is not a sponsor of this ‘strike’ nor do we endorse or condone the activities of these few individuals,” McNally said. “ATA and the vast majority of America’s truck drivers will continue to deliver the nation’s most essential goods unabated even while we continue to work through whatever policy disagreements we have with Congress and the administration.”
