Yesterday morning, Windosr police tweeted that people taking part in the Ambassador Bridge demonstration are subject to arrest and ‘advised to clear the area immediately’.  Police appeared ready to arrest demonstrators, bringing buses to the bridge to escort them away and started closing in on them as the day progressed.  Today, it has been reported that police began arresting the protesters.  The Epoch Times Reports

While police have taken aggressive actions against protesters, demonstrations in Canada have remained relatively peaceful.  Video footage from Friday shows protesters interacting with police peacefully at a Freedom Convoy event.

There has been pushback against Freedom Convoy protests in Canada and across the world.  Governments have taken increasingly aggressive actions to disperse protests.  Yesterday, the French Government threw tear gas at protesters participating in a “Freedom” demonstration that took after Canada’s protests.  Police also chased protesters down the street with batons and riot shields.
