An anti-COVID-19 restriction trucker convoy circling the nation’s capital will not be entering Washington, D.C. — at least not yet, organizers said Monday.
Organizer Brian Brase spoke to members of the convoy early Monday morning at Hagerstown Speedway in Maryland, where the convoy had camped out for the night. Brase told the assembled crowd that the convoy would not be entering the capital yet out of fear that it would be cast in the same light as the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol Riot.
“I am fearful, [myself] and the organizers are fearful of them trying to do to us what they did to those involved in Jan 6,” Brase said. “It is our belief that they will try to do that.”
“That means at this time, meaning today and tomorrow, we are not and will not go into D.C. proper.”
