With the three-week anti-vaccine protest getting worse, police and protesters now have clashed in Ottawa, Canada.

The news: The police arrested 100 people, while trying to end the three-week anti-vaccine mandate protest. On Friday, some officers on horseback followed the government orders to put a stop to the protest.

  • Some protesters who resisted were thrown to the ground and had their hands zip-tied behind their backs.
  • Protesters have also been accused of using children as a shield, according to police.

What’s going on: A group of protesters has refused to leave the city despite orders to do so. According to footage from the scene, hundreds of police officers advanced into the heart of the protest zone, next to Parliament Hill.

  • A few protesters formed a line in front of approaching officers, linking arms and singing the national anthem, ‘O Canada’.
  • To prevent more protesters from entering the area, Ottawa police have set up nearly 100 police checkpoints around the main protest site as well as a large business and residential district in the city center.

What are they saying: The Ottawa police posted on Twitter, “DEMONSTRATORS: You must leave. Anyone found within the illegal protest site may be arrested.”

  • As part of the operation, police have also towed 21 vehicles. No protesters were injured during the operation, and those arrested face a variety of charges, including mischief, according to Ottawa’s interim police chief Steve Bell.
