‘Hold The Line’: Canadian Police Arrest Leaders Of Freedom Convoy, Several Others Amid Crackdown

By

Canadian authorities have reportedly begun arresting members and organizers of the Freedom Convoy in Ottawa after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act.

Canadian officials arrested Tamara Lich, an organizer of the rally, and charged her with mischief, the BBC reported Friday. Another organizer, Chris Barber, was also arrested and faces charges of mischief and an obstruction charge, according to the report.

Prior to her arrest, Lich posted an emotional video on social media about how her arrest was “inevitable.”

“There’s a pretty good chance, well I think its inevitable at this point. But, I’ll probably be going somewhere tomorrow where I’ll be getting three square meals a day,” Lich said as she wiped away tears. “That’s okay. I’m okay with that. I am not afraid. I’ll probably get some sleep finally. Just please, stay peaceful, and please take care of each other and know that this too shall pass.”

The head of the Freedom Convoy, @Tamara_MVC, is preparing to be arrested. “I think it is inevitable. I want you to know that I am not afraid. Stay peaceful, and please take care of each other.”
