The Epoch Times Reports–
“OTTAWA—The “Freedom Convoy” protests continued overnight and into Sunday Jan. 30 in Ottawa, with trucks and vehicles still parked in the city’s downtown core, and people gathered on Parliament Hill, with some setting off fireworks at night.
Protest organizers say they will stay in Ottawa until their demands for lifting COVID-19 mandates are met.
Truck horns continued to be heard honking intermittently on the second day of protest in the nation’s capital, with people walking around carrying Canadian flags as well other flags and signs.
The event, which started on Saturday Jan. 29, drew thousands of supporters from across the country. The Parliament Hill area as well as nearby streets on Saturday were packed with people.
A spokesperson for the Ottawa Police Service told The Epoch Times it won’t give an official estimate of the number of people who have come to the city for the protest until the demonstrations are over. Police also refused to confirm how long they are expecting the protests to last.
Protest organizers said at a news conference on Jan. 30 that they’ve lost count of how many trucks have joined the protest, saying as one example, one convoy heading from the West of the country had around 1,000 vehicles. Protest organizer Benjamin Dichter also noted that the protesters have been peaceful.
In a statement on Jan. 30, police said there have been “no incidents of violence or injuries reported.”
