“Freedom Convoy USA 2022” organizer and Maryland gubernatorial candidate Kyle Sefcik urged President Joe Biden to “end the mandates” in a video Monday as truckers put together to protest in Washington, D.C.
“We are coming peacefully, and we’re going to do this lawfully and constitutionally,” Sefcik stated. “I want the rest of the world to know our plans, so there’s no lying about who and what we are.”
“On behalf of Freedom Convoy 2022, we are asking you to end the state of emergency. End the mandates once and for all,” Sefcik continued. “Sir, the world is watching us because they know if what’s happening in Canada happens to us here in the land of the free, then freedom as we know it is gone.” (RELATED: Police On Horseback Trample ‘Freedom Convoy’ Protesters In Canada)
The “Freedom Convoy USA 2022” protesters are planning on arriving in D.C. for Biden’s March 1 State of the Union tackle. Sefcik stated he “pulled a permit from the National Mall” in an effort to be “respectful.”
Sefcik is working for governor in Maryland and lists his political ideology as “unaffiliated” on his web site.
“Freedom Convoy USA 2022” is one in every of a number of teams working towards utilizing vans as a method of protesting COVID-19 vaccine mandates and restrictions within the nation’s capital. The American Truckers Freedom Fund is one other convoy planning to reach in D.C. quickly, in accordance to its web site. The People’s Convoy, in the meantime, is planning to reach in D.C. on March 5, 4 days after Biden’s tackle.
“Freedom Convoy” protests worldwide have drawn consideration as truckers collect to protest their governments’ COVID-19 vaccine mandates and restrictions. In Canada, some “Freedom Convoy” organizers had been arrested after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act.
