The Freedom truckers and their patriot civilian allies are occupying the Canadian capital city of Ottawa and holding the line as government police forces try to carry out a “surge and contain strategy” to dismantle the truckers’ historic protest against vaccine mandates. Leftist prime minister Justin Trudeau has fled from his home in the capital and gone into exile. The Freedom truckers are returning joy to the capital city, singing songs of unity, playing street hockey, and even setting up a soup kitchen to feed the needy. But the government and establishment media are frantically trying to stop the truckers’ peaceful revolution. The truckers are holding the line, chanting “Freedom” at the hostile police forces.

The Ottawa police are getting desperate.
GiveSendGo, a Christian fundraising engine, stepped up and stood with the Freedom Convoy after GoFundMe banned the freedom truckers’ fundraising page and seized their donations. HERE IS THE GIVESENDGO CAMPAIGN FOR THE FREEDOM CONVOY (which is so popular that the website is experiencing on and off technical problems).
“GiveSendGo stands for hope and freedom,” GiveSendGo declared in an official statement. “We recognize the freedoms we have are God given, not authorized by governments, but rather ought to be protected by our governments. We do not condone violence of any form! We have been in contact with the campaign organizers and have received full assurance that any funds raised will not be used to fund any violent actions. As in any polarized situation we recognize there will be a few individuals and groups that might intentionally try to incite violence. We realize this will be used to stain this movement by opposing groups. We will not broad stroke those individual situations as a depiction of what this movement represents as if they were affiliated. GiveSendGo will always stand for freedom for those on either side of our current ideological divide. Our hope is first in God and also in the notion that we can be united as free people across the globe, standing in the freedom that was bought for us first at the cross, but also maintained by the blood men and women who have given their lives to see us live freedom.”
The Ottawa Police are taking credit for coercing GoFundMe to block the money from getting to the truckers.
We want to thank @gofundme for listening to our concerns as a City and a police service. The decision to withhold funding for these unlawful demonstrations is an important step and we call on all crowdfunding sites to follow.

GoFundMe initially wanted to disperse the more than $10 million raised for the truckers to “charities” but now GoFundMe claims to be reimbursing the money back to the donors, as the Freedom movement organizes to make fraud complaints against GoFundMe.
To simplify the process for our users, we will be refunding all donations to the Freedom Convoy 2022 fundraiser. This refund will happen automatically—you do not need to submit a request. Donors can expect to see refunds within 7-10 business days.
