Greenpeace Protesters Facing Arrest Over Enbridge Demonstration
Four Greenpeace protesters have been arrested and released following a non-violent demonstration on the sixth floor of 505 Burrard Street yesterday. Four Vancouver residents, three women and one man ranging in age from 26 - 31 years are now facing charges of mischief and assault by trespass.
Shortly before 1:00 a.m. on July 29th Vancouver Police intervened at the request of the property owner and asked the protesters, who had chained themselves to a sixth floor suite, to leave peacefully. A female protester complied and was arrested for mischief. Police removed the chains from the other three and arrested them for mischief and assault by trespass. All four were taken to jail and later released with conditions to not attend the location again.
The protest that began at 10:00 a.m. on the morning of July 28th was resolved without incident and charges are now pending against the four Vancouver residents.
