To protest the Obama administration’s “corruption against the Constitution,” a group of Truckers will be shutting down Washington, DC for three days on the weekend of October 11-13, 2013.
The groups facebook page, “Truckers To Ride for The Constitution”, currently has over 156,000 fans and is growing rapidly as news of the protest spreads across the country.
The truckers state why they are doing this in the description as follows.
The American people are sick and tired of the corruption that is destroying America! We therefore declare a GENERAL STRIKE on the weekend of October 11-13, 2013! Truck drivers will not haul freight! Americans can strike in solidarity with truck drivers!

A “few thousand” tractor-trailer drivers are expected to converge on the Capital Beltway on Friday afternoon from staging areas on Interstate 95 in Virginia and Interstate 81 in Pennsylvania, co-organizer and conservative activist Zeeda Andrews told The Washington Post.
Drivers plan to occupy three lanes of Interstate 495, driving 55 mph, with the fourth lane kept clear for emergency vehicles and supporters. Only motorists displaying the group’s Twitter hashtag on their vehicles will be allowed to pass, Andrews and other organizers say, adding that the protest would be peaceful and lawful.
