Protesters say they will 'walk away' from BC legislature
Protesters begin to dismantle their encampment at the B.C. Legislature Tuesday night.

After six days of protesting at the BC legislature, including an eventful one Tuesday ahead of the Throne Speech, protesters say they are walking away.

The group began bringing down their encampment at the legislature Tuesday night.

Shortly before 9 p.m. Tuesday, the Facebook page “Wet’suwet’en Solidarity Victoria” said, quote, “rather than be violently removed by the Vic PD they will walk away proudly and with strength tonight.”

Victoria Police says it is investigating reports of assault and people being injured during the protests at the B.C. Legislature.

VicPD is calling for witnesses.

Protesters opposed to the Coastal GasLink pipeline in northern B.C. disrupted events at the legislature Tuesday ahead of the government’s throne speech.
