The ‘Freedom Convoy’ Is Nothing But A Vehicle For The Far Right - Canadian Anti-Hate Network

They say it is about truckers, and have raised over $5.5 million dollars on GoFundMe. But if you look at its organizers and promoters, you’ll find Islamophobia, antisemitism, racism, and incitements to violence.

Looking at the ties of the organizers, I’m kind of surprised that so many people are uncritically sharing the ‘freedom convoy’ content.

Here’s the “convoy” getting blocked by a single cyclist in Vancouver:

The far-right has taken COVID denialism and virus rights advocacy as its own calling card. Similar people here in Finland have noticed this event and appear to be currently planning a similar convoy. I even stumbled into a Telegram group and channel where they are organizing and sharing their ideas. In addition to COVID restrictions and mandates, they are also protesting rising fuel prices.

You are describing corporate behaviour that is incentivized for shareholder value, and goes largely unpunished by weak sauce neoliberal “small government” jurisdictions the world over.

I would rather wait for another vaccine that seems more legit from a trustworthy organisation

Canada has 4 approved vaccines with a few more under consideration or in clinical trials. Which one would you consider?

I’m not anti-vaccine …

The first six syllables out of the mouths of literally every anti-vaxxer I’ve ever met when the subject comes up.

They should demand fair wages, benefits, reasonable working hours and conditions since they did drive all that way after all.
