What’S going on where you are right now exactly what you care about Hines me there’s over 500 of protesters spread out and it’s a very different than what we saw in front of the BC legislature building a couple days ago. We can hear lots of people honking.
A lot of support for these protesters are out today through word-of-mouth. I’Ve heard about this event today, just by talking to other people, as you can see behind me, a lot of these protesters are so going. They’Ve been going since 7 a. m. so it’s been a long day for a lot of them in this is the 9th of day that they’ve been protesting and actually join 1 organizer.
