truckers supporting economic shutdown ride to Washington DC protest obamaThis Friday, a large group of truckers intend to shut down the nation’s capital.

The truckers will be in DC for three days to challenge Obama’s “corruption against the Constitution.”

The “Truckers Ride For The Constitution” Facebook page says, “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!”

The Ben Swann team reported on this event in September and conducted an exclusive interview with one of the protest’s organizers, Zeeda Andrews. Since that writeup, the event has gained a great deal of attention, especially after U.S. News & World Report covered ”Truckers Ride For The Constitution” on Monday morning in a detailed report. That article was also linked to on the Drudge Report, giving it even more publicity.

On Monday, just as the event was picking up immense steam, Twitter unexpectedly shut down the truckers’ account.

At this time it is unclear why Twitter did this.
