In Canada, 47 people were arrested Monday while protesting in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en land defenders as they are raided by Canadian police. Protesters around the country blockaded ports, railways and other sites of transportation. The blockades affected 20,000 rail passengers and prevented 200 freight trains from traveling.
