Conflicts with counter-protesters at the site led the protesters to abandon the blockade in the afternoon. When an employee from the law firm representing CN served court documents submitted by the rail company in seeking the injunction to protesters, some of the roughly 30 counter-protestors in the area began dismantling the barricade. The two groups argued but did not become violent, even as one counter-protester backed a trailer up to the tracks so that others could remove and haul away the wood pallets, barrels and signs that made up the barricade. “This is the violence. See, this is the violence,” said a protester, who had his face covered. “This is not violence. I am just trying to remove some garbage,” the counter-protester responded.
