The Red Braid Alliance for Decolonial Socialism, who started the Deltaport protest on Saturday night, said they held the Deltaport blockade for nearly 40 hours.

“There have been 14 arrests & we resisted until the end,” said the group on their Twitter feed. “This isn’t over until Canada respects the sovereignty of the Wet’suwet’en – of all Indigenous nations. We fight on!”

The protests at Deltaport as well as The Port of Vancouver were set up in a show of solidarity for Wet’suwet’en pipeline opponents.
