Trudeau accuses the antivacunas of blocking democracy in Ottawa and asks them to end the protest

The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, reported on Monday the antivacunas and radical groups that for ten days occupy the streets surrounding the Canadian Parliament in Ottawa of "Block" democracy while requested the end of the protest.

Trudeau participated on Monday night in a parliamentary emergency debate requested by the Social Democratic Democratic Party (NPD) to deal with the protest that both the mayor of Ottawa, Jim Watson, and the Police Chief of the Canadian Capital, Peter Sloly , they have qualified "occupation".

Canadian Prime Minister, in his first appearance in the House of Commons after Contracting Covid-19 on January 31, declared during the debate that "Canadians have the right to protest, to disagree with their government since their voices They are heard. "

"This pandemic has been a shit for all Canadians! But Canadians know that the only way out is to continue listening to science," he said, visibly irritated by the protests.

"It has to stop," he added after pointing out that Ottawa police has already been reinforced with 300 mounted police agents and will provide the resources that the city needs to respond to the situation.

In recent days, both federal authorities and those of Ottawa have been criticized by their inactivity to restore order in the Canadian capital and prevent the protest of antivacunas from being converted into a chaotic occupation of the area of Parliament.

This Monday, SLOLY recognized during a press conference its inability to restore order in the capital and called for the shipment of 1,800 mounted police agents and other nearby cities, to control the situation.

In recent hours, before the neighborhood pressure, Ottawa police have arrested 20 people and tax about 500 fines for non-compliance with local regulations, such as fuel transport to keep trucks in operation or excess noise for constant use , day and night, of the speakers of the vehicles.

Also on Monday, a judge forbade demonstrators for ten days the use of dozens of trucks that block the streets around Parliament.

Ten days ago that protesters use the speakers of their high tonnage trucks day and night, which has caused clashes with neighbors.

One of the spokespersons of the protesters, Tamara Lich, said activists are willing to negotiate with the Government to seek an exit to the crisis, but insisted that restrictions should be reduced.

"What we try to do now is contact all parties at the federal level, in order to organize a meeting," he said during an event transmitted on YouTube. "So we can start the dialogues and see how we can move forward, make them raise their restrictions and mandates, restore the rights and liberties of the Canadians and go home," she added.

Given the criticism of allowing the center of the capital to be blocked and closed shops, the Ottawa police announced new measures on Sunday to control protests, prohibiting from bringing fuel and other supplies to protesters.

For the political analyst Frederic Boily, from the University of Alberta, the protests could scalade in a true political crisis.

"Justin Trudeau reacted badly at the beginning," he said. "He reacted too strongly and abruptly at the beginning of the protests when he tried to present them as ultraraderecha protesters." He threw "gasoline to fire" by presenting vaccination as a political issue, he estimated.

Although just 10% of Canadian adults still do not get vaccinated, around 32% of the population supports protests, according to a recent survey.

The protests began on January 29 when the so-called "convoy of freedom", organized by truckers opposed to vaccinations against Covid-19, attracted Ottawa more than 3,000 trucks and between 10,000 and 15,000 protesters, including Extreme Organizations right.
