Breaking News: The platform which was used by Canadians to donate to truckers protesting vaccine mandates by the Trudeau government has deleted the GoFundMe Me page of the truckers. Millions of dollars’ worth of donations were given to the Truckers after days GoFundMe Me decided to pause it, then outright delete it.
GoFundMe’s Official statement on closing down the fundraising “GoFundMe supports peaceful protests and we believe that was the intention of the Freedom Convoy 2022 fundraiser when it was first created.
We now have evidence from law enforcement that the previously peaceful demonstration has become an occupation, with police reports of violence and other unlawful activity.
To ensure GoFundMe remains a trusted platform, we work with local authorities to ensure we have a detailed, factual understanding of events taking place on the ground. Following a review of relevant facts and multiple discussions with local law enforcement and city officials, this fundraiser is now in violation of our Terms of Service (Term 8, which prohibits the promotion of violence and harassment) and has been removed from the platform.
Organizers provided a clear distribution plan for the initial $1M that was released earlier this week and confirmed funds would be used only for participants who traveled to Ottawa to participate in a peaceful protest. Given how this situation has evolved, no further funds will be directly distributed to the Freedom Convoy organizers — we will work with organizers to send all remaining funds to credible and established charities verified by GoFundMe.”
GoFundMe has said allegedly that due to alleged law breaking that they are taking down the fundraising page.
GoFundMe now is saying that they will take the 9 million dollars willfully donated to that organization and forcibly steal the money and give it to others.
GoFundMe risks getting a civil lawsuit.
