This may be the first direct action that all 99% can get behind. Our part: no money transactions on those three days: October 11-13, 2013.
Three days after I wrote about the march, the site has garnered over 67,000 likes and new developments have arisen that could only have happened due to the overwhelming support for our hard working truck driving friends.
Many Americans are supporting the 18 wheel drivers rolling to DC by pledging to boycott those three days by staying home and avoiding all money transactions for those days. But, individuals are not the only ones who have come out in support of this endeavor. A few members with Indiana Overpass for Obama’s Impeachment are offering to pay for hotel rooms and a meal or two for the truckers.
A truck stop in Baton Rouge, LA is offering 50 gallons of free fuel to the first 20 truckers that come by their establishment with pictures showing their rig in DC during those three days.
There has even been a post from a man in Germany, written in German, supporting the million trucker march to DC.
Truck drivers are posting pictures of themselves with their trucks and indicating whether they will shut down and stay home or shut down for the drive to DC.
A reprint of the Freedom Outpost article appeared on the Daily Paul. The Blaze posted an article the day after Freedom Outpost and Fox News picked up that article and scrolled the information in their news ticker.
