Justin Trudeau, Canadian Prime Minister, Insists Trucker’s Protest “Has To Stop”, Florida Governor to Investigate Gofundme’s Actions

The Freedom Convoy 2022 continues as thousands have surrounded Ottawa’s parliament buildings. Canadian truckers protested the new coronavirus vaccine.

After falling ill with Covid-19 and being fully vaccinated, Justin Trudeau, Canada’s Prime Minister, addressed parliament Monday for the first time since last week’s coronavirus. “Individuals want to blockade the economy, democracy and daily lives of our citizens. Trudeau insists that it must stop.

Canada’s Freedom Convoy 2022 has continued to protest for ten consecutive days. Justin Trudeau, Canada’s Prime Minister, has had enough with the protests and wants them stopped.

Trudeau’s comments follow Gofundme’s American crowdfunding platform. Gofundme shut down Freedom Convoy’s fundraiser, and told the public that it would return donations. Gofundme closed the fundraiser, which raised $9 million for truckers. The decision was criticized. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis pledged to investigate Gofundme’s decision after Gofundme rescinded Freedom Convoy’s fundraiser. DeSantis stated that he would work with Ashley Moody, Florida Attorney General, to investigate the deceptive practices.

Since the Gofundme Reversed Truckers Fundraiser, Hundreds of thousands have been raised in Censorship-Resistant Bitcoin

Bitcoin.com News published three days ago a report on how cryptocurrency advocates reacted to Gofundme’s decision and two fundraising events that were crypto-infused. To raise 100 BCH to support the truckers, a Bitcoin cash (BCH), supporter created a Flipstarter fundraiser. The Flipstarter has raised 24.10 BCH so far. That’s close to $8K at today’s exchange rates. A Twitter account called ” Honkhonk” was another fundraiser that our newsdesk covered.

Honkhonk Hodl has raised $542,000, or 12.415 BTC, through a fundraiser that ended at 9:45 AM (EST) February 8, 2022. The Freedom Convoy truckers are the goal of this fundraiser.

Honkhonk Hodl has hosted a fundraiser on the Tally platform. It has raised $541K, or 12.41 Bitcoin (BTC), so far. People can either donate onchain or use the Lightning Network to send their support. 53% of the BTC donors contributed to Freedom Convoy’s fundraising onchain while the rest used the Lightning Network. Interview with Alex McKeen, one of the founders of the fundraiser and Grant LaFleche (Toronto Star reporter), revealed that five people are currently holding the keys to the fund.

One of Freedom Convoy’s founders said to the Toronto Star reporter that they could pass it off to truckers at some point. “People who are donating bitcoin want that to happen,” he explained. “We have only had one meeting. It could be anything. We could even keep it as an endowment.

Fox News Anchor Tucker Carlson: “The Only Way to Get Around the Stranglehold Technology Has on Our Human Rights is Decentralization.”

Tucker Carlson, Fox News’ anchor, also saw the bitcoin fundraiser. Tucker Carlson Tonight featured Carlson discussing Gofundme’s decision not to continue the fundraiser and the ways that cryptocurrency supporters have responded.

Carlson spoke out about Honkhonk Hodl’s fundraiser on the Tally platform. He said: “Now, what makes this so appealing? The money cannot be stolen. Carlson added that no government can force anyone to hand over the money, as governments don’t control crypto.

The Bitcoin currency can be used to transfer money from one person to another. All the intermediary, the company does is connect them — It’s quite appealing. If people in Canada and this country want to eliminate the U.S. Dollar, they will continue acting as such. It’s clear that decentralization is the only way to overcome the technology-imposed stranglehold on human rights.

The entire world is monitoring what happens to a certain portion of society when it doesn’t comply with collective mandates. The trucker’s Freedom Convoy 2022 is in Canada and has been going strong for ten consecutive days. Freedom activists around the world are cheering them on.

The occupation of downtown Ottawa, Ontario has also moved towards the Ambassador Bridge, which is the busiest North American border crossing. Traffic on I-75 has been backed up since Monday night, and there has been a steady increase in traffic to Detroit, Michigan.
