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.

    This is the approved time as Braveheart said and I quote, “FREEDOM”. Also our founding fathers said “Give me Liberty or Give me Death”. It should of never come to this in our country of free people! We The People let our government elected officials to run rampid and now we are paying the price! It’s each and everyone of us to research and VOTE for the best person to do the job. Don’t let someone convince you the this person or that person is the right person to whichever office they are running for. You and you alone mark the ballot. You are the one that is responsible and nobody but you. Did you do your research? Did you get off the couch and go vote? Did you elect the right person? What are you going to do next time? I hope and pray you research and vote. Thank you.

    Very well said. I’m glad it was at least published here.

  • Gunter Thompson says:

    Wilcox certainly is free to list all the evidence-free Right-wing gripes and grievances.

  • Shifra says:

    Thank you Mr. Wilcox for fearlessly speaking truth. We ALL need to do that! Thank you Watchman for giving us a voice.

  • Nemo says:

    Excellent article and what an inspiring video! The Sitka Sentinel newspaper owner opdnly admits he does not print letters thst he disagrees with. What a shameful way to keep the public in the dark. Thank you Brett Wilcox for speaking truth!

  • A.C. says:

    Since true journalism is dead in Sitka’s Sentinel newspaper, thank you for publishing this.
    So many of us are missing the 4 years of America’s greatest recovery only to be fed the dismal outlook by current Leadership and the one sided extreme left lies promoted by the media, it’s the least we can do to support the peaceful movement in Canada against Government tyrannical takeover of our society.

  • AC says:

    Since local newspaper Sitka Sentinel is radical left the true journalism is missing in Sitka. Thank you for exercising our Constitutional rights and posting this.
    Many people care about their rights being violated by the Government.
