Truck drivers in Australia are reportedly planning to shut down major highways across the country to protest against Covid lockdowns.
One driver issued a warning in a video circulating online that truck drivers are ‘planning to shut down the country’ to ‘remove the s*** government’.
He said supply chains would soon be interrupted and urged Aussies to stock up on groceries to get them through the next couple of weeks.
A GoFundMe page has since been launched to support the truckies financially as they prepare to strike from 9am on Tuesday August 31, which will involve ‘blocking every highway entering into every state at the same time’.
‘It’s on. The truckies are doing it. The truckies are going to shut down the country,’ the man says in the video.
‘What that means is you need to go shopping now, get what you can for the next week or two, load your fridge, freezers.’
‘The truckies are coming and they are going to pull this country down and we are all going to do it together and remove this s*** government.
The man says truck drivers have been in discussion with people from around ‘the world’ and are working with war veterans to carry out the scheme.
