 2010 Heart Attack was an Anti-Olympic march that wound its way through Vancouver's downtown eastside to downtown. Masked protesters blocked off intersections with newspaper boxes and other found objects, as well as smashed windows of Olympic sponsors such as the Hudson Bay Company. Riot police were eventually called to the march where police and activists clashed. Many people were arrested and injured.
