An online group dedicated to organizing a large protest titled ‘Convoy to Ottawa 2022’ has been deleted by Facebook. The social media company has been accused on numerous occasions of conservative censorship, something it denies. A new page for the truckers has been launched on Gab.
The Facebook group ‘Convoy to Ottawa 2022’ has been taken out of service by Mark Zuckerberg’s thought police, leaving organizers and participants scrambling to find a replacement. 1000s of truckers are currently en route to Ottawa, with the convoy receiving international media attention. On Tuesday, hockey legend Theo Fleury spoke to Laura Ingraham about the ongoing protests, calling for a “revolution.”
The now-deleted Facebook group had just below 600,000 followers. Glen McGregor from CTV acknowledged that the group had been deleted early Wednesday morning. Fortunately, a Gab group has been created. The page was immediately verified and reposted by Andrew Torba, and is quickly filling with members. In addition, a new Facebook page has been created, but it is unclear how long that will last.
The truckers’ convoy continues its way East, passing Winnipeg on Tuesday and slowly making its way into Ontario. The truckers are expect to be in Ottawa on Jul. 29 for a peaceful, but disruptive protest. According to police in Saskatchewan, roughly 1,200 trucks were part of the convoy as it reached Regina on Monday. Many more are expected to join before the convoy makes its way to the nation’s capital.
