Inspired by the nearly-one million bikers who rode through DC on 9/11, truckers across America are planning a protest of their own.
Some of the truckers who were with the bikers in DC came up with the idea. They set up a Facebook page on 9/15.
The bikers were ignored by the media but no one is going to ignore a three day general strike by truckers. They might be able to pull it off.
This is their goal according to their Facebook page:
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!
Truck drivers will not haul freight! Workers will call in sick! Consumers will not buy or sell anything on this date! Stay home! Buy nothing!
On their page, they say that they are doing it in support of defunding Obamacare.
The “Truckers To Shut Down America” Facebook page has 58,149 likes.
Listen to Kevin Allen talk about the Trucker movement. Some mild expletives.
