Protesters in Canada have blocked train lines in response to the arrest of 10 indigenous demonstrators a day earlier.
Demonstrators also blocked Vancouver's port entrance and at least one highway. A new rail blockade, at a junction of three busy railway lines near the port city of Hamilton, also interrupted commuter service there. On Monday, police arrested some of the Tyendinaga Mohawk campaigners who had shut down a railway in southern Ontario for more than two weeks. The blockade came in solidarity with the Wet-su-wet-en’s indigenous group are seeking to stop construction of a gas pipeline across their land in British Columbia. The standoff between authorities and the natives has grown increasingly tense over the past weeks.
