The following is a news analysis.
The heavy hand of government censorship and political persecution continues to push new bounds.
The GoFundMe alternative, GiveSendGo, says it is refunding unsent contributions to the Canadian Freedom Convoy Truckers.
That after the Canadian government criminalized the receiving of such funds.
Previously, GoFundMe tried to confiscate donated funds and send them to a different charitable cause. However, after word that that may be illegal, GoFundMe returned the funds to donors.
You can read the notice from GiveSendGo below.
|Update: Freedom Convoy Trucker Funds|
|The Canadian government has criminalized the receiving of funds from the Freedom Convoy 2022 campaign and now are trying to seize the funds to redistribute. In order to protect our Givers and the intended purposes of their gifts, funds not already transferred to the recipients from the 'Freedom Trucker Convoy' campaign will be refunded automatically, no refund requests necessary. Additional information will be posted shortly. Thank you for your patience.|
Thank you for reporting this. As a Canadian I live in fear of the power the Trudeau government is usurping. While he defends Democracy for the Ukrainian people (I don't dispute that) he trashes our Charter of Rights and freedoms as he terrorizes people who hold different political views of his regime. Obviously the reference to redistributing the funds implies that the money raised by hard working Canadians can only be directed to sources that HE deems worthy. Canada is in big trouble.
non-Canadians as well are in big trouble, government representatives, bureaucrats and organisations world-wide are playing this "let's grab the extra buck and bully the people into obedience"- game. transparency is our only answer, information about these crooked practices need to be shared far and wide.
