The People’s Convoy set off from California this week to take part in an epic multi-organization cross-country protest of government mandates and overreach related to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The organization launched its protest from Adelanto Stadium in California on Wednesday and by Friday had amassed over $855,000 in monetary donations, according to the organization’s website, which was almost twice what it had reported just one day prior.
The convoy’s organizers relayed the simple goal of their trek – which has reportedly grown to more than 8 miles long – in a press release earlier this week, calling for elected representatives to end all mandates and to end the state of emergency noting that it’s time for Americans to “get back to work in a free and unrestricted manner.”

“There is no virus on the face of the earth, that merits the suspension of our inalienable rights, ever,” noted Rob McCoy in an interview leading up to the event, the outspoken senior pastor of Southern California’s Godspeak Calvary Chapel that stood up to tyrannical leaders early in the pandemic. The “People’s Convoy” was organized by one of the church’s congregants.

“Liberty, [is] like muscles, if you don’t exercise it, you lose it,” McCoy said. “And we have to be vigilant to protect this nation that was conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”
The protest was inspired by Canada’s Freedom Convoy and is slated to arrive in Washington D.C. on March 5, 11 days after its launch. There are reportedly up to 25 other convoys scheduled to converge on the nation’s capital in a massive display of patriotism around the same time.
Unlike Bob Bolus, the organizer from another convoy that departed from Pennsylvania on Wednesday who said he planned to shut down the Capital Beltway by drawing a comparison to a boa constrictor squeezing and choking the city to death, the organizers of The People’s Convoy plan to maintain a law-abiding and peaceful protest that ends just before entering D.C. proper because the convoy is about “freedom and unity” and the group has no plans to shut down roads or bridges.
‘A lot of people have asked why we’re doing this – what’s your reason behind it. People want a defined, clear answer. They think it’s one thing,’ organizer Brian Brase said before the People’s Convoy departed from California, according to a report by Daily Mail.
‘The truth is, it’s about my children. It’s about my future grandchildren. It’s about our families. It’s about our country. It’s about letting our government know that you work for us.’
Of course, there were the restriction-loving mask-worshiping tyrants on social media that were shocked people would fight to make their own health care choices and could do nothing but resort to name-calling.
This should be called the Misinformed Convoy, the Wrongfully Aggrieved Convoy, or the Extremist Convoy NOT the People’s Convoy.

But the freedom-loving Americans were out in full force, pounding the pavement and pulling out the red, white and blue to show their support for the truckers as they make the way across the country in defense of liberty.
