An organizer of one of multiple US trucker convoys that are getting ready to descend on DC says they will be like a “giant boa constrictor,” that “squeezes you, chokes you and it swallows you, and that’s what we’re going to do to DC.”

Bob Bolus, who owns a truck parts and towing business in Scranton, Pennsylvania, says that they are protesting a range of issues including fuel prices and vaccine mandates.

Organizers of one convoy, called the “People’s Convoy,” claim that they have 1,000 truckers ready to participate “right out the gate,” but believe it will likely grow as it moves from California to DC.

Bolus says his group is planning to stay “a day or two.”
