Truck convoy makes its way through southeast Minnesota

(ABC 6 News) – A convoy of truck drivers rolled through Minnesota Friday.

They call themselves the ‘Rolling Freedom’ convoy. They are part of a nationwide protest — against vaccine mandates, and wanted to protect personal freedoms.

Drivers were greeted by hundreds of supporters along the overpasses along their route throughout the state, including Albert lea, Austin, and Dexter.

"I’m so proud to be an American, and I’m so proud of these truckers and what they are giving up for our freedom. It’s about freedom," said

They expect to make it to Washington, D.C. by Saturday night.
