Organized by Advocates for Citizens' rights, a non-profit founded by firebrand attorney and civil rights advocate Leigh Dundas, the “Golden Gate Bridge Rally” is in its second day. Dundas has high hopes that the rally will put additional pressure on the White House to back off from its unconstitutional demands that everyone get vaccinated, whether they want to or not.
Dundas told Human Events:
A couple of weeks ago I started getting calls from blue-collar guys. You know, the folks who actually run this country….
[They] were working at large companies that were 40%, 50%, and often as high as 70% unvaccinated — and are willing to hold the line.
These guys are drawing a line in the sand, making a stand for freedom.
And I believe in my core that the week of November 8 [Thursday, November 11, is Veterans Day] will go down in the history books as the day that freedom rose up, tyrannical mandates went on the run, and history was changed for the better.
Dundas teamed up with Robert Kennedy, Jr.'s, Children's health Defense, Clay Clark and General Michael Flynn (co-hosts of the Re-Awaken America Tour), Dr. Simone gold of America's Frontline Doctors, and others. The work boycott is being “especially encouraged” in the manufacturing and transportation sectors of the economy.
The Golden Gate Bridge Rally is going to be an epic and unprecedented moment in time. It will mark — on Veterans' Day evening — a 4-day Nationwide walkout, by rank-and-file workers everywhere, from blue-collar to white-collar, black, white, yellow, red, every faith, every creed, who are uniquely united despite their differences on one common truth: that vaccine mandates have no place in a truly free society.
Every group: anti-vaccine, BLM, gay, straight, Jewish, Muslim, Native american, Asian, Latino, Christian, atheist — all groups — are coming together for this one historic moment in time — to trumpet not just to our own government, but indeed to the watching eyes of the world, that vaccine mandates will no longer be tolerated.
That in this country, WE are the government, because our founding fathers knew this truth: a truly free nation is a nation of the people, by the people, and for the people. That we are the leaders we have been waiting for. And that today marks the day that we retire vaccine mandates as a concept that cannot live in a free society, and that we are, indeed, simply that: a free society.
Enrico Trigoso of The Epoch Times interviewed some of the participants in the strike, including Kristen Grace, a systems engineer with Raytheon for 18 years:
I will lose my livelihood on December 8 because I won't allow an experimental gene therapy to be injected into my bloodstream. I've recovered from COVID, and I work from home, but the government has claimed authority over my body and medical choices.
I choose natural immunity over government.
Another Raytheon systems engineer is prepared to be fired for not taking the vaccine:
I've submitted a Notification of Religious Accommodation. If it's not approved, I'll be fired on December 8th because I'm not going to violate my beliefs or surrender my Constitutional rights for a job….
I feel betrayed by a company I've given my best years. They could have stood up for us but they put profits and the “woke” agenda first.
I'm surrounded by fully vaccinated people with new and mysterious health issues. Many have gotten COVID, but I'm treated like someone unclean….
Science, logic, and common sense have been tossed in the COVID dumpster fire. While I love my country, I'm ashamed of my company and my government.
The only good news is that even the fully vaccinated now realize the promise of normality was all a lie. Now they are once again masked and being told boosters will be mandatory. And they are now rising up too.
Jet (no last name offered), with Honeywell, will not violate his religious beliefs:
Never in a million years [had] I imagined that something like this would happen in the United States. This is what tyranny looks like and it's not going to stop here.
Equally disappointing is to see that Honeywell along with the rest of major U.S. corporations have decided to go along and enable tyranny.
I'm not getting the vaccine. I have applied for a religious exemption. If not granted, so be it. Because of this mandate, we're now going to be treated as second-class citizens. In case people have forgotten, this is the definition of tyranny: cruel and unfair treatment by people with power over others.
John Knox, a member of the LA Firefighters for Freedom, said:
We are fighting against these unconstitutional mandates because anything that is repugnant to the constitution is illegal. These mandates clearly step outside the constitutional parameters.
As firefighters and first responders we need to take a stand and we need to let the rest of America know we will fight and they can join us.
A secretary who traveled from Arizona to participate in the protest told the Times:
Where does this end? If they can force vaccines in our bodies and violate our will that way, where is the line drawn? We need to fight back and not allow this.
The Golden Gate Bridge Rally has gotten the attention of TripAdvisor:
Heads up if you plan to visit the Golden Gate Bridge or nearby areas (e.g., the Presidio or Marina) on Thursday November 11, Veterans' Day. A coalition of anti-vaxxers has chosen this day, when we honor those who have served our country in the military, to hold a rally and march at the GGB Roundhouse.
It is scheduled from 3:00 to 6:30 p.m., with speakers from 3:00 to 5:00 including health commentator Stella Immanuel and televangelist Robert Schuller.
It appears the speakers will be followed by a march on the bridge. If there is commute traffic that day, this will coincide with the afternoon northbound commute.
How much impact it will have can depend on whether 40,000 or 14 people show up.
