American ‘People’s Convoy’ COVID-19 protest to begin in Adelanto

The coast-to-coast “People’s Convoy” to protest government COVID-19 mandates will begin in Adelanto, with 1,000 semi-truck drivers expected to start the cross country trip to Washington, D.C.

Update: On Saturday, organizers of the People’s Convoy announced a midday Feb. 22 staging time for truckers at Adelanto Stadium followed by a ship off rally there at 10 a.m. Feb. 23. There was no point out of starting the convoy in Barstow. 

An estimated 1,000 semi-truck drivers are predicted on Feb. 23 to descend on Adelanto, the formal commencing place of the coastline-to-coast “People’s Convoy” to protest government COVID-19 mandates.  

The message the truckers intend to deliver from California to Washington, D.C., is that “government has overlooked its place” and that its mask and vaccination mandates are unconstitutional.

Organizers say the convoy, which follows identical Ottawa, Canada protests, will contact on lawmakers to carry the declaration of a nationwide crisis relating to the COVID-19 pandemic and to halt depriving U.S. citizens of their “basic rights” by imposing mask and vaccine mandates.
