Last Thursday, the heavily militarized police engaged in a violent raid on the “Treaty Camp” — which saw over 140 people arrested — using heavy weapons, rubber bullets, chemical weapons and armored police tanks. The vicious assault was caught on video by many of the water protectors and journalists covering the protests.
