Nearly 70 vehicles participated in the “Sitka Freedom Convoy” this past Saturday. For those who don’t understand the purpose of the convoy, I offer the following. I speak for myself, but I’m sure most participants share a similar perspective.

I want to live in a country and indeed a world where the inalienable rights of all people are recognized, cherished, and protected. 

Free to speak, to assemble, to worship, and to peacefully petition the government when necessary. 

Free to collaborate with medical providers who are free to honor their Hippocratic Oath, to first do no harm, who are free to offer their services without fear of censure, coercion, job loss, or loss of license, who are free to prescribe treatments as they see fit, not as dictated by pharma-owned government officials.

Free from mandates, free to accept or decline medical procedures for myself and for my children as I choose, especially experimental procedures brought to market by one of the most heavily fined industries on earth. 

Area residents assemble for the Feb. 12 Sitka Freedom Convoy.

Free from the utilitarian ethic of the “greater good” where pharma-owned bureaucrats declare that all individuals – regardless of inalienable rights and individual circumstances or beliefs – must participate in one-size-fits-all procedures in which an unknown number will be injured or killed.

Free to access data before participating in medical procedures – and not 55 years later, as Pfizer fought to do with its experimental injection data. 

Free from propaganda, censorship, and the pharma-funded 24/7 panic news cycle.

Free from the lie that locking down healthy people is necessary, effective and without negative consequence, that healthy people are unclean, that vaccinated people are protected from infection or transmission, and that masking the public bears any influence on case rates.

A truck flies the American flag during the Feb. 12 Sitka Freedom Convoy.

Free from the lie that currently used experimental injections – the same injections that have injured or killed more people than all vaccines combined in more than 30 years – are safe and effective.

Free from the lie that disease risk to children is beyond negligible, the lie that children play a major role in the spread of the disease, and the heinous lie that children should risk their entire lives to protect people who are nearing the end of their lives. 

Free from participation in coercive and fraudulent PCR testing, where cases are falsely declared positive or negative with the turn of a dial to satisfy political interests, not scientific validity.

Free from liability-free industries, services, procedures, and providers.

Free from officials who practice medicine without a license by coercing and/or mandating experimental medical interventions, even on young children, some of whom will suffer lifelong physical, intellectual, developmental, emotional, relational and financial consequences as a result. 

Free from freedom-crushing vaccine passports, hateful and violent rhetoric, denial of services, segregation, discrimination, fines, fees, job loss, detainment or loss of parental rights based on private medical choices. 

Freedom must be cherished and protected from generation to generation. Thank you, Sitkans, for rising to the occasion. There is much work yet to be done.
