Blockade returns to Port of Vancouver in defiance of court injunction

Protesters supporting Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs were back blocking vehicle access to the Port of Vancouver Wednesday, one day after six people were arrested for violating a court injunction at the site.

A Port of Vancouver spokesperson says demonstrators were blocking the port road to Clark Drive on Wednesday afternoon and police were on the scene.

Photos from the scene showed five protesters standing across the entrance to the facility’s Clark Drive viaduct entryway.

Vancouver police were on scene and said they were deciding how to handle the situation.
