Ottawa’s mayor has declared a state of emergency and police are seizing petrol and other supplies donated to the truckers’ convoy and arresting people who give material aid to protesters.
The truckers held a press conference today and outlined the situation and called for talks with the state officials.
The truckers’ convoy in Canada has mass support. After GoFundMe (now known as GoFraudMe) seized $9m in donations, millions more dollars have been given in solidarity to the truckers on another platform. The truckers are standing firm while the state is trying to intimidate them and their supporters.
