According to posts by some of the demonstrators on social media, the blockade began as a march down Commercial Drive on Monday afternoon. The protesters said on social media that they’re supporting Indigenous land defenders.
They kept a small fire burning, and posted call outs on Instagram asking for more people to join them and for donations of firewood.
