(NewsWars) – Footage shows Canadian police violently cracking down on Freedom Convoy protesters in Ottawa, with one officer appearing to beat a demonstrator with the back of his rifle.

Protesters were also trampled by cops on horses, which police also used to ram into protesters.

“And to think, this all started with vaccine mandates of truckers, which scientifically has no utility,” wrote a perceptive Twitter user.

In other footage, a woman can be seen attempting to cleanse her eyes after sustaining a tear gas attack.

What other human rights abuses will be caught on camera as the night wears on?
