A Facebook page organizing a protest by US truckers against vaccine mandates has been removed by the social media giant, riling long-haulers blasting “censorship at its finest,” according to a report. The “Freedom Convoy” of truckers, following the lead of their Canadian counterparts, plan to drive from California to Washington, DC, in opposition to vaccine rules nationwide.
The group’s “Convoy to DC 2022” page on Facebook, however, was removed Wednesday for violating policies around QAnon, Fox News reported. Trucker Jeremy Johnson, who set up the Facebook group, said his personal profile was also removed, leading him to contact a civil rights attorney to figure out his next move. “They like to silence people that speak the truth,” Johnson told Fox News.
Brian Brase, who helped organize the US trucker protest, said he was troubled by the alleged censorship without further clarification from Facebook’s parent company, Meta.
