Truckers Protest, the Resistance Begins - US truckers call for nation-wide shutdown

Barbara Ehrenreich writes for Barbaraehrenreich.com: "Until the beginning of this month, Americans seemed to have nothing to say about their ongoing economic ruin except, 'Hit me! Please, hit me again!'... Then, on April 1, in a wave of defiance, truck drivers began taking the strongest form of action they can take - inaction. Faced with $4/gallon diesel fuel, they slowed down, shut down and started honking. On the New Jersey Turnpike, a convoy of trucks stretching 'as far as the eye can see,' according to a turnpike spokesman, drove at a glacial 20 mph. Outside of Chicago, they slowed and drove three abreast, blocking traffic and taking arrests. They jammed into Harrisburg PA; they slowed down the Port of Tampa where 50 rigs sat idle in protest. Near Buffalo, one driver told the press he was taking the week off 'to pray for the economy.'"
