New Zealand Joins Canada and Finland – Convoy Blocks Parliament and Demands to End Vaccine and Mask Mandates

The protests for the freedom of truckers, farmers, and people from all walks of life continue.

Truckers from Canada blocked the Ambassador Bridge connecting Canada and the US.

Truck drivers in Alaska made their own “Alaska Freedom Convoy” on Sunday in support of Canadian truckers.

Now, Hundreds or thousands of protestors drove in convoy to New Zealand’s capital on Tuesday and blocked the parliament to protest against vaccine and mask mandates.

New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern refused to meet the convoy saying she has other priorities.

More from Breitbart:

Vehicles in the convoy included cars, trucks and motorbikes and displayed signs such as “Jabcinda we know you sold your soul to the devil”, “Stop the mandate #Freedom” and “Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful.”

A multitude of flags were also spotted alongside the NZ flags brandished by the protestors including the United States’ flag, former President Donald Trump-themed flags, and British flags.

The vehicles remained outside New Zealand’s Parliament – which had just reconvened after their summer break – for hours, and appear to have left the area peacefully later on in the day, with the Wellington police not reporting any arrests.

The key aims of the protest were reported to be to challenge the mask mandate for pupils in schools and also the vaccination requirement for certain public sector jobs such as for nurses, teachers and police officers.

After the anti-mandate protest in Parliament, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has sent a message to vaccinated New Zealanders claiming that these people aren’t representative of the majority of Kiwis and “this too will pass,” Newshub reported.

It can be recalled that a massive freedom convoy was organized outside parliament in Helsinki, Finland demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Sanna Marin’s government, cutting 50% of fuel tax, and an end to all COVID restrictions.

“CONVOY FINLAND 2022″ is expected to resume daily through Wednesday, February 9, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day.
