Police in riot gear stormed a rally in Ottawa on Saturday, removing hundreds of protesters by truck.

“We love you,” some shouted at the police. “Come to the good side,” they begged. Others shouted “Shame on you”.

The windows of the trucks on the site were smashed. The camps were disbanded, as well as the stage. The concerts in front of Parliament were gone.

The besiegers were completely evacuated from Wellington Street, which is approaching Parliament for the first time since the start of the crisis.

After they left, a large perimeter wall was erected with large barriers by the security forces to prevent them from returning.

In the evening, Ottawa police said they were using “medium-range assault weapons (ARWEN)” to thwart protesters’ violent activities. Undead, these weapons fire rubber bullets.

Weapons were seized

In addition, interim leader Steve Bell told a news conference Saturday that investigations were underway into the possession of weapons by some protesters. The nature and figures of the seized weapons were not immediately available.

“If you get involved in this fight, we will actively identify you and lead to financial fines and criminal charges,” he said openly.

Despite the heavy police presence, parents brought their child back on Saturday and they were fined heavily.

Despite the setbacks, many protesters vowed that this was not the end and that they would return.

By the end of the evening, only a few of them were entertained on the streets of Ottawa, with beer and collective hands and close observation.

The people of the city center were delighted by the police action. They were exhausted by the noise and the arrival of trucks. Dozens of businesses have been closed for days due to the occupation.
