Enough is Enough!
Nationwide Diesel Shut Down: April 30 - May 1, 2008 Contact Us!
May 1, 2008
This past month thousands of truck drivers all across
the nation shut down their rigs to protest the high cost
of fuel. The message was heard but not loud enough!
Everyone agreed that WE got to do it all together!!!
Port truck drivers from the Atlantic, Gulf, and Pacific
Coast are uniting and encouraging ALL truck drivers,
intermodal, otr, regional, to join us to let our
government leaders know that something has got to be
done. Truck drivers are the new slaves and we are
getting tired of working just to pay the cost of diesel.
Enough is Enough! Some areas want to shut down
for a week, May 1 to May 8. Others are taking it to
Washington D.C. on a Convoy. WE all must do
what WE can, our families are counting on us, and
the American public has its’ hopes in us. Feed our
families or buy diesel. Something is wrong.
Stop all trucks on May 1, 2008.
America will stop for that day.
WE have a problem that needs to be fixed.
Bring them home NOW! We
need them at home. The
price of the war is too high,
both in soldiers killed and our
Truck drivers realize that it doesn’t
matter what race you are or where
you’re from. Abuse from the brokers,
dispatchers, and companies hurt
everyone. For one day WE must all
