Backed up by tactical officers, dog teams, and drones with infrared sensors, dozens of RCMP officers began raiding Wet’suwet’en land defender camps shortly before 5 in the morning. Led by one officer bellowing “Police! Stay Calm!,” dozens of officers flooded into the watch camp. One read a statement aloud saying that police were enforcing an injunction order and that anyone present had 10 minutes to gather their things and leave, or be arrested and charged with obstruction of justice. At least six land defenders have so far been arrested, several being dragged away in handcuffs. Police smashed the window of a truck and dragged out a woman who was naked and had locked herself inside.
