On Sunday, the full force of Canadian law enforcement was sent in to forcefully clear out the Trucker Convoy protest from the Ambassador Bridge in Detroit.
Armed with a court order granted the day before, officers arrested dozens of protesters and towed away any vehicles that remained in the area.
Several peaceful protesters are now facing serious punishment, including possible fines of up to $100,000, imprisonment for up to a year, and even the “permanent” loss of their driver’s licenses.
Police handed out fliers on Saturday night, detailing the punishments for continuing to blockade the Ambassador bridge.
Notice the last bulletpoint: “these measures will be permanent.” To add insult to injury, Trudeau and his stasi Goons are openly mocking the protesters for challenging his tyranny and demanding a ‘permanent’ end to mandates.
Seriously, screw this guy. F*ck Trudeau.
Despite the warnings, the brave Canadians remained, ready to take whatever punishment was coming to them.
Videos from earlier in the day on Sunday show police forming a perimeter around the main protest after they had announced they would begin making arrests at 11AM.

From Windsor police:
“Enforcement continuing, individuals who are located within the demonstration area are subject to arrest. People are advised to immediately vacate the area.”

Following the establishment of the initial police line, Riot squads and SWAT teams were dispatched to provide additional assistance. This appears to be when law enforcement began making the initial arrests.
As the crackdown ensued, law enforcement wearing full tactical gear also arrived on scene to facilitate the arrests.
In one video, these militarized squads can be seen flanking the police as they progress towards the crowd of protesters.
“SHAME! SHAME!” The convoy participants can be heard shouting.
In another video that compiles several arrests, a handful of the decked-out tactical team are seen marching into the protest area.
Police can also be seen manhandling an old man as they arrest him and pulling others out of their trucks.
This was a sweeping effort that was coordinated by all levels of law enforcement.
According to the Post Millennial:
“In a collaborative effort between police at the local and national levels, authorities moved in and “peacefully” arrested multiple protestors while seven vehicles were towed just after dawn, Windsor police said.”
This is tyranny, plain and simple.
Rebel News has set up a crowdfunding campaign to help fund the legal defense of these brave men and women. Convoy Protesters are able to submit their tickets to offset the costs of their legal fees (link to submit tickets here).
