Washington, DC

We first noted this protest on May 1st. According to Freightwaves:

“A convoy of around 70 small-business truckers convoyed to the nation’s Capitol around 2:30 a.m. on Friday, May 1, to protest low freight rates amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The group plans to remain parked along Constitution Avenue until May 4 in hopes of attracting the attention of President Donald Trump about the plight of small-business truckers, said Scott Jordan of Peculiar, Missouri, and owner of Powerhouse Transportation.”

Thanks to Alex for sending the photo above from 6:50am this morning. It’s obviously now May 11th so not clear how long they’ll be there.
