It does not matter if you are a trucker or not. Drivers need to stand UNITED while standing PROUDLY as one! 

        RNC Parade Protest  Sept. 2nd

This September the Republican National Convention is coming to St Paul, MN...It is our chance to let the White House know:  

Rising fuel prices are putting us out of business!

Rising fuel prices don't just affect truckers - they affect everyone. When higher costs are passed on to consumers it raises the price of food, the price of clothing, and everything else!

It is time the US Government begins focusing on economic issues at home!

Because while Shell, Exxon, Mobile, and most American corporations report obscene profits and outrageous salaries for CEOs, drivers and consumers are losing their homes, their pensions, their jobs, their benefits, etc. The middle class is being squeezed out!

JOIN US ON THE HIGHWAY SEPTEMBER 2ND TO SAY ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

2008 Shut Downs so far-
MARCH 31ST HARRISBURG RALLY
APRIL 1ST SHUT DOWN
Here’s more on the fuel protests in Asia from the NY Times.
 Previous Update: While not approaching the level of the strikes in Spain, it’s now global:
Around 50,000 Polish lorry drivers held one-hour protests across the country although without blocking roads, the organisers said.
And Dutch truckers announced plans to block roads at 18 points across the country for 30 minutes on Thursday.
In Thailand truck drivers voted to begin strikes next week and block roads to the capital with 400,000 lorries unless the government helps them pay for soaring fuel costs.
While in Hong Kong about 500 minibuses, lorries, garbage trucks and coaches staged a go-slow protest, crippling traffic in a demonstration calling for fuel taxes to be scrapped.
Truckers burned tyres and blocked roads in parts of eastern India angered by fuel price rises but elsewhere in the country calls for strikes were largely ignored.
In South Korea truckers voted to strike on Monday, ignoring a $10.2 billion (£5 billion) government aid package designed to cushion the impact of soaring fuel prices.
Greedy global corporations and their puppet politicians will be getting a wake up call. This September planned shut-downs planned for: Sept. 11-15th. No work, no school, no shopping. Shut 'em down. Spread the word.

Whether you call it the world financial structure, the U.S. culture of waste, or the ability of the common man to make a decent living, the system is broken. It's time for the common man to go on strike. Join or support the March on Washingon (more...)
