You may – or may not given the level of media manipulation, bias and censorship – have heard about the ongoing protests in Canada by truck drivers and their supporters against vaccine passports and other repressive measures. If you have heard about them, the odds are that the ‘reporter’ or commentator are portraying these truckers as racist backwoodsmen. Which kind of glosses over the fact that are fair number of the truckers are of Punjabi origin. It also glosses over the level of support coming from First Nation peoples. In an effort to try and redress the balance, below are four reports/commentaries we’ve selected that deal what is really happening on the ground with these protests which will go down in history. All we ask is that you read these reports, go off and undertake your own research and then consider the significance of these protests which are now being replicated across the globe. Please don’t end up on the wrong side of history…
Trucker’s Protest Canada: Some Thoughts – Cory Morningstar | BS News | 2.2.22
This resistance is diverse. Men, women, children, truckers, Amish, Mennonites, trades, all nationalities, all colours. The groups that not stray far from their communities, are not in Ottawa, but showed their support for the truckers along Canadian highways, from coast to coast, in freezing temperatures. The truckers have concrete demands to restore basic rights to ALL Canadians, not just truck drivers. They have inspired resistance across the globe.
Indians/First Nations (Indigenous being the politically correct term assigned by the colonizer/ Canadian Government) are distinct. The true owners, defenders, protectors of the (stolen) land, they are one with the land itself. Their presence is sacred, their blessings a gift. Parliament Hill sits on unceded Algonquin territory. “Sand from a communal Indigenous burial ground, almost certainly containing fragments of human remains, is believed to have been used to mix mortar for the original Parliament Buildings.”
Freedom Convoy Demonised – CIA-colour revolutions celebrated – Gavin O’Reilly | OffGuardian | 4.2.22
With the Freedom Convoy converging on the Canadian capital Ottawa on Saturday however, the week-long media silence on the protest disappeared only to be quickly replaced by widespread mainstream media condemnation, with the use of likely agent provocateurs leading to the protest being widely lambasted, in lockstep, as ‘far-right’ and ‘fascist’ by corporate-owned outlets.
The irony of the Convoy being against the very fascist concept of the fusion of state and corporate power via the use of vaccine mandates being lost it would seem.
This condemnation by the mainstream media of a genuine working-class protest against public officials working on behalf of corporate interests however, lies in stark contrast to their recent response to CIA-engineered regime change operations, masquerading as ‘human rights protests’ and which involved the use of genuine extremists, receiving the full support of the corporate media whilst doing so.
As Workers Resist, the Left Recoils – Edwin Aponte | Wrong Kind of Green | 30.1.22
By making social and economic participation contingent upon the taking of a speedily-developed medical product, average members of the global labor force are being placed in a dehumanizing position—either participate in the world’s largest clinical trial, or be cast into a life of social alienation and privation. Resistance to these vaccine mandates has been expressed through walkouts, picketing, coordinated sickouts, mass resignations, and most recently in Canada, massive truck convoys. And while COVID lockdown-related supply chain backups continue to play out, such revived worker militancy is adding to the already existing crises in the shipping, healthcare, and retail industries.
With such abundant unrest on the labor front it is interesting to note that the Left press appears more concerned with covering the class character of the sport of cricket, or asking whether or not it’s OK to laugh at the unvaccinated when they die of the COVID-19 virus.
This silence betrays the Left’s allergy to the varied social character of the working class as it actually exists in 2022. Any amount of social conservatism among the lower and working classes flies in the face of the Left’s condescending narrative of the downtrodden as the most morally dignified political subject. (After all, that is how the chattering class see themselves, and do they not have workers’ best interests in mind?)
Attack of the Transphobic Putin-Nazi Truckers! – CJ Hopkins | Consent Factory, Inc. | 4.2.22
But, seriously, this is where we are at the moment. We are in that dangerous, absurdist end-stage of the collapse of a totalitarian system or movement where chaos reigns and anything can happen. The official Covid narrative is rapidly evaporating. More and more people are taking to the streets to demand an end to whole fascist charade … no, not “transphobic white supremacists” or “anti-vax extremists,” or “Russian-backed Nazis,” but working-class people of all colors and creeds, families, with children, all over the world.
The Covidian Cult has lost control. Even hardcore mask-wearing, social-distancing, triple-vaxxed-double-boosted members are defecting. Formerly fanatical New Normal fascists are mass-deleting their 2020 tweets and switching uniforms as fast as they can. No, it isn’t over yet, but the jig is up, and GloboCap knows it. And their functionaries in government know it.
And therein lies the current danger.
