Occupy Edmonton Met By Wall Of Police At The University of Alberta

Occupy Edmonton Met By Wall Of Police At The University of Alberta



Occupy Edmonton protesters were met by a wall of police, security and peace officers on February 1st, 2012. The protesters planned to have a rally at the University of Alberta Quad, to highlight cut backs and rising tuition fees, but instead were met by at least 30 police including a helicopter. The university handed out a letter to students letting them know that they could in no way participate in any protests on campus that day, essentially taking away their right to protest.
