Dozens of truckers gathered Wednesday morning in Rialto, holding a rally. the truckers are headed to Washington DC to protest vaccine and mask mandates. The protest is expected to pick-up steam as it moves across the United States over the next several days. Organizers expect at least 3,000 truckers will arrive in Washington ahead of President Biden’s state of the Union address next Tuesday.
The “People’s Convoy” left the Adelanto Stadium and Event center. People came out with American flags and freedom signs in support of the convoy. Organizer’s say all of their stops will be peaceful and they are working with private security and law enforcement t make sure there are no issues. They just want their voices heard against the vaccine and mask mandates. The convoy was inspired by the recent protests in Canada that shut down the border.
