ATLANTA, April 1—Log hauler Brandy Thompson, above, invited Alyson Kennedy, Socialist Workers Party candidate for vice president, to ride in her truck in a convoy that circled Atlanta on I-285 today to protest rising fuel prices. Thompson and others have formed the American Fuel Consumer Movement to organize protests against the squeeze high fuel prices have put on independent truckers. She said that weekly meetings of the new group have drawn up to 300 people.
