Mohawk protesters continue to block trains along two of VIA Rail’s busiest routes in Ontario.
The blockade was organized by the Tyendinaga Mohawks in support of Wet’suwet’en land defenders in British Columbia who are resisting a Coastal Gaslink pipeline. The RCMP have been enforcing a court injunction and several arrests have made since Thursday, as they dismantle encampments in Wet’suwet’en territory.
The protesters stopped the parade and standoff with security ensued. Many of the demonstrators were carrying water protector signs, and some called for more action for sufferers of mercury poisoning in Grassy Narrows First Nation in northwestern Ontario.
The protesters stood in the parade path, after an impasse of about 45 minutes, Trudeau appeared to leave the event. But he joined the union group again a block later. The protesters continued to follow Trudeau and heckled him until he left.
