National "Truck Out Rally": April 23-25

This national civil disobedience event is in protest of the Trans-Texas Corridor (which will run from Mexico to Canada) and the proposed North American Union. The rally will be April 23, 24, and 25, 2007, and will occur in DC, every State capitol, and on as many freeways around the nation as there are participants who will make it possible. Details are found at: http://www.saveamericafund.org/ .

The idea is for truckers (and others) to line up abreast and roll slowly, while displaying banners and placards with messages such as "Stop the N.A.U.", "Protect America's Sovereignty", etc. The event is being endorsed and promoted by Aaron Russo's "America: Freedom to Fascism" (AFTF) organization, which has issued its first "digital video alert" or call to action. See the message on Google at: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-4702879741158038990 .

The hope is that a truckers' slow roll will tie up traffic, garner mainstream media attention, and let Americans know about the Trans-Texas Corridor (which will be eighteen lanes wide, consisting of roadways and pipeline routes) and the North American Union plans. The Fed Govt., of course, denies that there are any plans for the N.A.U.

It will be interesting to see how the protest plays out, and whether or not it is significant enough to gain the attention of the homogenized, mainstream, corporate media. Unfortunately, without the homogenized media's coverage, most Americans will never know anything about the N.A.U. and its danger to American sovereignty. The N.A.U. is something on which we or our representatives will never get to vote. Not that voting matters when it comes to Globalization...keep in mind that even though the European Union was voted down in most affected countries, it was implemented anyway.
