VPD Attack May Day March


See video

A high-school student taking pictures at a protest is forced off his bicycle, pinned against the sidewalk, has his arm twisted. Screaming in agony, pleading “please stop” “I’m a minor”, a VPD officer knee jabs him twice in the back and severely twists his wrist.

The Vancouver Police Department pushed and shoved many of the peaceful marchers at the Beat The Pipelines rally and march on May 1. After several blocks of marching, a seemingly arbitrary decision was made to block everyone marching in the left lane. A police sergeant can be heard ordering officers to “Get in front of them, push them the other way ...” No one was seen to physically resist or push back, but the VPD grabbed and assaulted people who were continuing to march along the street.
