“The Freedom Convoys that are planned in New Jersey and elsewhere are intended to send Governor Murphy and President Biden the message that the pandemic is over, it’s time to get back to normal life,” said Durr (R-3), a career truck driver. “It’s time to end all of the overbearing mandates that have taken away our rights, choices, and freedoms.”

Taking inspiration from the recent Freedom Convoy in Canada, organizers in the United States and New Jersey have mapped out commercial truck convoy routes leading to Washington D.C. with planned stops for demonstrations and events along the way.

Convoy coordinators in New Jersey and nationwide have been transparent in their planning processes and have been working with local authorities to ensure the safety of all participants.

Peaceful assemblies, such as those planned as part of the convoys, are protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.

In addition to supporting the planned convoys, the resolution, SR-68, urges participants to participate peacefully and with deference to law enforcement officers tasked with ensuring the safety of the general public.

“People are fed up with power-hungry leaders who are clinging to emergency powers that should have been given up long ago,” added Durr. “The Freedom Convoys are how truckers will send the message to Trenton and Washington to lift mask and vaccine mandates and end the unnecessary pandemic theater.”
