The rallies took place on Interstate 75 overpasses at Cass-White Road in Cartersville and Highway 92 in Acworth to show support for "truckers, bikers, troops and veterans," Mary Schaub told Patch.
Participants held signs including one that read "Protect Our Constitution T2SDA," apparently referencing the simultaneous Truckers To Shut Down America rally in Washington D.C., supporters of which are using the Twitter hash tag #T2SDA.
"Ride for the Constitution," the group behind the rally at the nation's capitol, said in a news release the "stage is now set for what we now consider the last peaceful defensive stand in a war that has been declared by Wall Street, Washington, and the White House upon the American people," USA Today reported.
Schaub said local supporters are working with the Overpasses for America movement, which started in June, and has organized Facebook groups and forums for non-Facebook users in each of the 50 states.
"The immediate goal of Overpasses is to pressure Congress into removing the criminal President Barack Hussein Obama from the office of President, along with his partners in crime," according to an Overpasses press release. "Overpasses demands that Barack Hussein Obama be removed from office for his multitude of criminal activities, including but not exclusively the Benghazi coverup, the Extortion 17 coverup, the AP spying, Fast and Furious, IRS thuggery, countless lies, signing unconstitutional laws into effect (Obamacare), and a long list of other crimes committed."
Sunday, the Facebook group Overpasses For Obama's Impeachment Georgia had more than 1,800 members. It's unclear how many Georgians are involved on the forum for non-Facebook users in the state.
Started in June, the "non-partisan grassroots movement made up of everyday Americans who understand the value of the U.S. Constitution," according to its website, had grown to 25,000 members more than a month ago, the press release says.
Hundreds of veterans went to Washington D.C. over the weekend to protest the government shutdown that could lead to disruptions in their benefits. Groups of protesters took barricades from closed monuments and memorials and piled them outside the White House, in what The Washington Post called "the latest burst of public outrage over lawmakers' inability to compromise over the budget."
