GoFundMe FREEZES Canadian ‘Freedom Convoy’ Campaign

After Ottawa City Council demanded ‘pipeline of funding’ be cut off

GoFundMe has frozen the campaign of the Canadian trucker convoy after it raised over $10 million Canadian dollars following demands from Ottawa city officials for funding to be ‘cut off’ to the protesters.

As reported by the Daily Mail, the page for the convoy now states “This fundraiser is currently paused and under review to ensure it complies with our terms of service and applicable laws and regulations.”

“Our team is working 24/7 and doing all we can to protect both organizers and donors. Thank you for your patience,” the page also reads at time of writing.

As Fox News notes, despite being labelled a “fringe movement” by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the campaign for the truckers raised more money in the past fortnight than the amount raised by Canada’s major political parties in the whole of the last quarter.

GoFundMe told directed reporters to a blog post explaining its position.

The post states “Recent events in Ottawa, Canada, have generated widespread discussion about the Freedom Convoy 2022 fundraiser on GoFundMe. We wanted to provide clarity around the actions that our global Trust & Safety and Customer Care teams take every day, just as they have with the Freedom Convoy fundraiser.”

It adds “As the activity surrounding the protest evolves, we have been monitoring the fundraiser to ensure the funds are going to the intended recipients and that the fundraiser remains within our Terms of Service. Our monitoring includes maintaining close communication with the organizer as well as collaborating with local law enforcement.”

“This process takes time and may slow down the withdrawal process. If the fundraiser does violate our Terms of Service or does not directly benefit the intended beneficiary, we will remove it from the platform,” the post concludes.

The move to freeze the funding comes just hours after Ottawa City council member Diane Deans in a Zoom meeting called the truckers “mercenaries” and demanded that GoFundMe, under threat of legal action, cut off the “pipeline of funding” to the Freedom Convoy.

Days earlier, Ottawa City Councillor Mathieu Fleury called for the city to launch court proceedings against GoFundMe for allowing the Freedom Convoy page to continue receiving donations.

The Canadian media is also suggesting that the Freedom Convoy movement is part of a conspiracy by “Russian actors.”

    Zelensky Critic Arrested in Spain on Orders of Ukrainian Government

    Even though he condemned Russia’s invasion.

    A popular YouTuber and critic of President Zelensky was arrested in Spain at the behest of the Ukrainian government on charges of treason and faces extradition, despite publicly condemning Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

    Yes, really.

    Anatoly Shariy, who has almost 3 million YouTuber subscribers, was detained on an international arrest warrant in a joint operation by Spanish and Ukrainian police, as well as international “partners,” according to the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU).

    They claim that Shariy has been acting on behalf of “foreign” forces by infringing Ukraine’s national security via his media commentary on the war and engaging in “incitement of hatred.”

    Shariy’s arrest “is more proof that every traitor of Ukraine will sooner or later receive his well-deserved punishment. It is inevitable,” the SBU asserted.

    The blogger had previously been granted asylum by the EU in 2012 after fleeing persecution by the government of Viktor Yanukovich, who was pro-Russian.

    Despite condemning Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Shariy’s criticism of Zelensky’s response was apparently enough for him to be targeted by Ukrainian authorities.

    Having had his passport seized, Shariy is now in Barcelona under a travel ban until a decision on his extradition to Ukraine is made. President Zelensky’s representative at the Constitutional Court said Shariy will “face a Ukrainian court and will be held liable in line with Ukrainian laws.”

    In response to his arrest, Shariy posted a picture of his wife feeding parrots in Barcelona, commenting, “This really is a comedy.”

    Shariy’s arrest once again puts to bed the idea that Ukraine is some kind of beacon of democracy, when its authorities treat dissidents exactly the same way dissidents are treated in Russia.

    Last month, footage was released of Associated Press accompanying armed men from the Ukraine Security Service as they kidnapped and arrested dissidents from their own homes.

    Macron Claims Banning Islamic Veil Would Spark “Civil War” in France

    But polls show majority of French still want to see it banned.

    French President Emmanuel Macron claimed during a debate that banning the Islamic veil would spark “civil war” in France, although a majority of French people still support the ban.

    Macron made the statement during a presidential debate with challenger Marine Le Pen.

    Le Pen, who supports a full ban on the veil, said she was “not carrying out a war against their religion.”

    “I am for the banning of the veil in public space. The veil is a uniform imposed by the Islamists, a large part of the young women who put it on cannot do otherwise in reality, even if they dare not say so,” Le Pen told viewers.

    “What you’re saying is very serious,” Macron responded. “You’re going to create civil war if you do it.”

    However, polls show that the majority of the electorate side with Le Pen in supporting the banning of the veil.

    A poll conducted last month showed 61 per cent were in favor of banning the veil.

    A more recent survey found that 35 per cent were “totally for” banning the veil, while a further 25 per cent were “rather for” the move.

    Perhaps Macron should be asking why France is accommodating so many people who would immediately resort to violence if their feelings are hurt.

    It’s no surprise that the Great Mosque of Paris has urged Muslims in France to vote for Macron in order to help defeat Le Pen.

    In a video statement, the rector of the mosque, Chems-Eddine Hafiz, claimed that “malicious forces are speaking out today calling for the banishment of Muslims.”

    Urging Muslims not to ignore the election, he stated, “Abstention from voting and the blank votes will strengthen the far-right wing.”

    Meanwhile, a new mosque in Toulouse that can accommodate 4,000 people has just opened while Christian churches continue to be desecrated and closed down on a daily basis.

    Figures show that nearly 25 per cent of all newborn babies in France have an Arab name.

    And the French are likely to vote for the continuation of all this be re-electing Macron on Sunday.

    Video: Elon Musk Again Sounds Alarm Over Depopulation

    “Most people in the world are operating under the false impression that we’ve got too many people.”

    The left’s most hated figure of the moment Elon Musk once again issued a warning over falling birth rates globally, noting that “Most people in the world are operating under the false impression that we’ve got too many people.”

    Mathias Döpfner, CEO of Axel Springer, asked Musk what keeps him awake at night, to which the Space X CEO responded that negative birthrates “might be the biggest threat to the future of human civilization.”

    Musk noted that so called ‘experts’ are promulgating the myth that the planet is overpopulated.

    “This is not true. Earth could maintain a population many times the current level. And the birth rate has been dropping like crazy,” Musk urged.

    Citing Japan as a startling example of depopulation, Musk added that “ridiculous population estimates from the [United Nations]” should be “updated, because really, they don’t make any sense.”

    Watch:

    Full interview:

    Earlier this year, Musk asserted that “If people don’t have more children, civilization is going to crumble, mark my words.”

    Musk countered claims that “the population is growing out of control,” a refrain often made by environmentalists, asserting that the truth is “completely the opposite.”

    Recent studies have shown that more people are refraining from having children citing concerns over the climate, health and overpopulation, while Researchers at the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation recently warned that the planet is not prepared for an ongoing global population crash, and that the impact will be “jaw dropping”.
