#American #Truckers Determined to Shut Down #WashingtonDC for Three Days

Recent campaigning by Truckers to Shut Down America is revealing that truckers across the United States of America are determined to not only hold a general strike, but they are likewise dedicated to direct action. In a statement from their facebook page they state:

“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! Workers will call in sick! Consumers will not buy or sell anything on this date! Stay home! Buy nothing!”

American truckers have been longtime allies with the Occupy Movement, notably during the West Coast Port Shutdown where they successfully shut down major American shipping ports.

If you are trucker or support the effort, why not download and share this image to help promote involvement?

    My email to the organizer: Some liberal folks are questioning, especially because of anti-Obama and anti-Muslim comments. Your purpose in the about section does not make that clear enough.
    Basically, informing everyone that it is a non-partisan protest and asking everyone to put their politics aside to come together to protest our government would make all the difference in the world about whether or not people will share this, join in, or blow it off.

    Zeeda, Organizer: The truth is if people are going to be offended by the word Muslim then we don’t need their participation. This is about the destruction of out Constitution and many Muslims in office have changed laws illegally……this is who we are talking about. We already know the Christians in office have already violated their oaths. So we don’t care about being politically correct….if you don’t like it simple don support it…that is your choice but don’t tell his how to run this…that is the problem with America now. I support peaceful law abiding Muslims that are Americans. Their are a lot of Muslims that came to this country to get away from Sharia Law. What about them? They don’t want it either. But the biggest Muslim that is destroying America is Obama and he is waring with God himself. I don’t give a damn about the Libtards and would the rather they not even stop by Trucker To Shut Down America. They are the biggest problem with what is wrong with America.

    I won’t even mention the other email where I was called subversive and that it was illegal.

    Sad to see fellow Occupiers giving this group any credibility.

What is the Occupy Movement?

The Occupy Movement is a leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions. The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%. We are using the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic to achieve our ends and encourage the use of nonviolence to maximize the safety of all participants.
