Unpopular People’s Convoy Truckers fiddled with eggs in Oakland

A “People’s Convoy” of truck drivers eventually took the fast lane out of town after Oakland residents threw eggs at the trucks in an encrypted confrontation recorded on video.

“Get the hell out,” many of the counter-protesters shouted as a truck driver was seen crawling out of his vehicle to confront an individual who was throwing eggs.

Protesters in the convoy were later heard complaining on their CB radios about having to wash their trucks, the Sacramento Bee reported.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the convoy – which involved about 20 semi-cars, pickup trucks and vans – originally rolled into the Bay Area last week to plant American flags on the lawn of San Francisco’s residence for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D -California) . But they could not decide which house was hersaccording to Daily Beast journalist Zachary Petrizzo.

Then, on Friday, the convoy flew to Oakland to protest outside California Assemblyman Buffy Wicks (D-Oakland) over a bill on abortion protection and another bill that would have mandated COVID vaccines for private business employees (which she had already put forward). on team last month), reported The San Francisco Chronicle.

As the convoy got stuck in the streets outside a Safeway grocery store on its way to Wicks’ place, residents and jammed drivers reportedly took the opportunity to buy lots of eggs.

Wicks’ office told The Mercury News she was home when the convoy arrived on her street and she called police for protection.

“Bull horns and loud trucks give no legitimacy to baseless conspiracy theories from protesters outside the state,” a statement from her spokeswoman told Mercury News. Assemblywoman Wicks “will not indulge in any attempt to influence her legislative work through harassment and intimidation tactics,” the statement added.

The convoy was reportedly back at its California home base in Sacramento Sunday.
