The video below was captured by a biker who was close to the demonstration. The protesters flew large, bright-red Tamil Eelam flags with some Canadian flags interspersed. Some of the protesters marched ahead with a banner that said, “SRI LANKA, STOP THE GENOCIDE”. Police stood by, and the chanting of the protesters alternated with the sound of the police siren. Later in the video, the protesters started running and shouting down the street with flags flying.
The video below shows the highway blockage of the protesters as seen from far away and amongst skyscrapers. The video pans from the red-flagged mass of protesters to the long, winding line of cars gleaming in the distance, and back.
