You suspended Parliament on a false pretence to avoid debating your unnecessary martial law imposed because of an imagined emergency @JustinTrudeau https://t.co/9GcAu6yKTq

As we previously reported, the police in Ottawa moved in this morning on the Freedom Convoy protesters. They had arrested a couple of the organizers Thursday. That was a warning that action would come today. They wanted to try to clear everyone out before the weekend, so they would not, again, have thousands of people coming in. While they did a lot of arrests Friday, they may not have achieved their aim, as there were so many people — and more will be coming.
The police arrived with their names covered, so they couldn’t be seen on their uniforms, and with tow trucks that the government had said they would conscript into service under the Emergencies Act invoked by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Some of the trucks had the names of the companies covered over and without plates, and at least one driver had a mask covering his entire face, to obscure who he was. These are not people proud of their actions.
“Police here are now breaking vehicle windows at gunpoint. They are rolling in busloads of officers and tow trucks without plates on them, “ from trucker Matt McKenzie #FreedomConvoy #Ottawa

Unbelievable scenes in Ottawa as dozens of armed officers move in aswell as a huge tow truck.

You can see the mask on the tow truck guy here.
It looks like the windows of this vehicle being towed were smashed in. There are no longer any demonstrators on Nicholas St. They’ve either been arrested or have left on their own. pic.twitter.com/Bi1qSCfVpI

There were hundreds of police officers, some of them heavily armed.

Media reported that the police were even trying to hold them back from the enforcement area — presumably to prevent them from seeing what was going on.
When the police moved in, protesters were trying to hold the line, locking arms to not let the police past. They were not fighting back against the police, although one Fox News reporter said they were “shoving.” Indeed, it was the police shoving and trying to break the line, precipitating the action. The people were holding the backs of the people locking arms, so no one was actually physically shoving the police — they were just “holding the line” of people.
At one point, the police peeled one protester away from the man he was linked to, threw him to the ground, and began kicking him, and he disappeared behind the police line.
Another encounter showed a veteran being thrown down by the police.
You can see another protester here, apparently being beaten with a butt of a gun by the police. Keep in mind, none of these people hit back at the police; at best, they resisted being torn from the locked arm lines. They get kicked and beaten with guns for that.
The protest had been full of joy, with bouncy houses, spas, and snowball fights, like the one they had on Thursday evening. These were the dangerous “terrorists.”
A snowball fight has broken out at the freedom protest in Ottawa.

But in a symbol of how broken Canada’s freedoms now are, the police even destroyed the bouncy houses on Friday.
This is also a good picture of the wreckage of Justin Trudeau’s career.
Shades of 1943 Nazi Germany. Castro Trudeau will install himself as Führer
Ottawa walks live stream
See Warsaw ghetto.
Now we know greg is a Nazi loving facist. He is cheering this on like a little girl cheerleader for a recreational football team…
This is how the left deals with a truly peaceful protest, at least when it is not sanctioned by the left and promotes the leftist agenda. While this is in Canada and not the US, let us take note of the lack of Democrats denouncing the senseless violence and absolute absence of any diplomacy or consideration for the public’s view.
To be clear, those who participate in civil disobedience should be prepared for an official reaction. That’s where the courage of the protester comes in; there IS a risk. But what we have seen in the US is a complete blank check given to violent, terroristic, destructive leftist riots and looting (nothing like a “peaceful protest) with no arrests or even condemnation for personal assaults, attacks on police, destruction of public and private property and MURDER. There is no courage required because they know going in they are going to get a pass for whatever they do.
The left is violent, fascist and totalitarian.
The word is all the arrests were a scam tactic the people were loaded into the paddy wagons told to sign a paper that they would not return to protest and dropped off about 15 minutes away, those that refused were taken an hour away and dropped in the middle of nowhere.
There were reports from a Fox news reported that the elderly grandma on her mobilty scooter that was intentionally trampled by the horses was killed, other reports she was hospitalized , maybe broken neck dislocated shoulder but heavily bruised.
The man that tried in vain to protect her and was trampled, condition unknown.
Those heavy draft style horses were trotted into the helpless crowd no one threw a bike at the horses legs. The Toronto Sun has footage.
Rumors 3 persons died in police custody, we will need to wait.
The Ottawa police are not mandated to take the jab.
So now Canada has its official January 6
