Alaskans from the Kenai Peninsula, Anchorage, Eagle River, Mat-Su and Fairbanks areas took to the highways and byways on Sunday in a massive display of support for medical freedom against crippling and coercive Covid mandates. Driving big rigs, trucks and cars, or crowding onto overpasses waving signs and flags, these patriots turned out in solidarity with truckers in Canada and others around the world who have suffered under countless and destructive mandates.

Anchorage convoy heads out on Sunday, Jan. 6.

This is not an insignificant fringe group. It comes from scores of new and emerging grassroots organizations all across Alaska who regularly meet to discuss and brainstorm ways to defend personal liberties and protect individual freedoms.

Sunday’s convoy from Anchorage to Eagle River grabbed the attention of many leading public figures, and included short speeches by U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan, U.S. Senate candidate Kelly Tshibaka, Anchorage Mayor Dave Bronson, Assemblywoman Jamie Allard and many others.

These public demonstrations are not an end, but a means in the monumental task of letting government officials, corporate chains and federal authorities know that millions of Americans are fed up with coercive jabs, ineffectual mask mandates, devastating closures and strong-arm tactics against soldiers, children, businesses, churches and citizens in the wider public square.

In truth, countless Alaskans – and Americans across the nation – have already been bullied into taking these experimental jabs. Many did so against their better judgement in order to preserve their livelihoods and provide for families. Millions of others have resisted the shots and suffered the consequences.

Sunday’s demonstrations mustn’t be a one-off rally, but a call to ever greater engagement in the struggle to preserve our fundamental freedoms.

This virus has placed America at a crossroads. Let that intersection be jammed – bumper-to-bumper – with freedom loving patriots!
