Two separate groups of Alaskan truckers and their supporters are set to thunder across the highways of The Last Frontier on Feb. 6 to show support for Canadian truckers.

The southern neighbors just completed a historic convoy to Ottawa this past weekend. According to multiple media outlets the Canadian rally included some 50,000 trucks, spanning 45 miles as the rolling rally proceeded to the capital to protest a Jan. 15 rule that all truckers entering Canada be deemed fully vaxxed against Covid.

The Biden administration has imposed a similar rule, starting Jan. 22, that requires all non-U.S. essential workers – like truckers – to show they’ve been jabbed in order to enter U.S. soil from Canada or Mexico.

Truckers in Alaska and across North America are increasingly taking to the highways and byways to fight back. Two Alaska convoys, one in Fairbanks and Another in Anchorage, are set to roll Feb. 6 as truckers mobilize across the nation in defense of medical freedom against coercive Covid mandates. A similar event filled the streets of downtown Juneau this past weekend.

“Convoy to DC 2022” is in the works, a national demonstration in which organizers are hoping to mobilize tens of thousands of big rigs to drive in unison from California to Washington, DC.

Organizer Brian Von D, told the Epoch Times that many American truckers joined the Canadian convoy, and are now ready for a similar show of solidarity in the U.S.

“…it will start in California, and it will end in DC and we’re gonna stay there, just like Canada is doing,” he said. “You’re gonna have your main artery … everybody will join in as they go down the interstate to DC.”

While still in the works, truckers and others can stay up to date on the national plan at the CONVOY TO DC 2022 Facebook page.

“We’re done with the mandates, were done with the government telling us what to do, we will continue, and we will follow just like the rest of the world on these trucker protests, and they will be 100 percent legal, they will abide by the law,” Brian said.

He noted that the Canadian rally was both peaceful and powerful.

“America, it’s your turn, it’s your turn to step up and show what you’re made of,” he said. “We love you all. America, it’s time to stand up.”

The Anchorage convoy will gather at Cabela’s at 1:30 p.m. and roll out at 3 p.m., headed north on C Street, right on 6th Avenue and then take the North Eagle River Exit through downtown Eagle River to the Lion’s Club (18344 Eagle River Rd.). Click here for more information.

The Fairbanks convoy, also on Feb. 6, includes multiple routs from Delta, Healy and surrounding areas. According to a notice for the event, vehicles will converge at the Carlson Center in Fairbanks at 3 p.m. “to protest tyrannical mandates, stand for freedom, stand for the future.” Click here for more information.

    On Saturday, the Canadian rally spread to cities all across Canada. This movement is growing wildly. The shear amount of trucks in Ottawa is astounding, and the protest is not over yet. Triple-jabbed Trudeau now has “covid” and is hiding from what he called the “small fringe minority.” There was also a 4 hour convoy in Juneau on Saturday.

  • Neil DeWitt says:

    If our countries are so up and locked why not Canadian trucker bring stuff to the boarder and drop the trailer and American’s do tge same. That way neither has to cross tge border but goods can keep flowing. It’s not rocket science!

    • LeeWard says:

      Maybe because the drivers do not want to be forced to get the gene-altering jab?

    • Nan says:

      Why not remove the tyrannical mandates and let the truckers do their jobs! Covid is being used as a weapon of control by politicians. It’s time to take back our freedoms and remind the politicians they work for us!! Let’s go Brandon!

  • Ross+Perrine says:

    Stand for Freedom! Stand With Our Truckers! Let Freedom Ring!

    • Bob says:

      Choke…..oh my god. Is this your daily I have to complain about something? What about the right of people to be healthy?

  • Carolyn Bosela says:

    Go for it Alaskan truckers! Drive for freedom. We will support with our prayers. Australia and Europe are organizing their respective convoys. May these drives for freedom go around the world.

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    I stand together with these truckers to fight these stupid mandates
    Again what happened to my body my choice, abortion is so wrong. Remember it’s my choice with God and my doctor not some woke government telling me how to live or what to put in my body.

    • Mike says:

      Easy to say when you are in a state the size of Alaska. Poor choice to say I SPIT ON YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. How about $500 more a month for health iNS

  • Sally M Pollen says:

    I love this! Every part of infrastructure is important and truckers everywhere are standing together and helping to turn the over-reaching government beast back. We the People are waking up to the rights and powers our constitution has given us.

  • Cheri Sobczak-Crippen says:

    A peaceful demonstration to support freedom of speech, choice, privacy and personal responsibility. What better expression of our American way of life could there be? Worth mentioning is the fact that any human on earth should be able to embrace these freedoms but many are denied that. We should not take it for granted that we have enjoyed so much…we could easily loose it all. I know it will be a short journey (12 miles?) but I think it says a lot that the point is NOT to disrupt and ruin in the process. (like numerous social justice groups do). You are to be congratulated! God Speed…

  • Matthew myers says:

    The Black Lives Matter movement gets a pass and velvet glove treatment for a year’s worth of looting and rioting. These good truckers are peacefully protesting actual discrimination and persecution, but I fear they will be smashed by the Marxists and parts need with lies and labeled as traitors.

  • kris spencer says:

    So, you’re expecting Trudeau to just throw in the towel? Is he going to admit that he was wrong and the truckers are right? Is he going to stand down? He’s already stated that Freedom-loving Canadians do not align with the norm…

  • Greg in Homer says:

    God bless the truck drivers. They have been heros for the last 2 years. Thru the pandemic, they kept working, delivering needed goods all over the state. Groceries never stopped. Even though we were locked down at the start of this pandemic, the truck drivers risked exposure to the then-unknown and threatening virus. They are now fighting for our freedom. Every driver deserves sincere gratitude from all Alaskans.

    • Mike says:

      Yes, thank you for doing the work to keep us all supplied. However, do not get this LET FREEDOM RING nonsense. If that is the case, maybe you can keep driving to Russia….Sarah thinks you can get there from her house.

  • Gunter Thompson says:

    I understand that the route has been changed to include a brief event at the Anchorage Baptist Temple. Is that correct?

  • Jim says:

    Why hasn’t anyone blocked the Alaska/Canadian border?

  • Dumblevy says:

    Too bad the USA’s number one export is idiocy.

  • Sarah says:

    Does anyone know how to find more information for the Alaska Interior Convoy? I can find no other information than what is in this article. The FB link is blocked. I appreciate any information you can give. Thanks!

  • Tami says:

    Go Truckers! Let Freedom Ring, and honk! God bless all those truckers, and all Americans fighting peacefully for our freedom of choice and voice!
