WATCH: Anti-pipeline protestors try to light train on FIRE
Posted on February 26, 2020
A group of anti-pipeline protestors attempted to light a train on fire in the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, which temporarily stopped freight train traffic.
Police spokesman Bill Dickson told The Canadian Press the protestors lit a fire by and on the railway tracks as a train train moved through the area around Belleville, Wednesday morning.
Dickson said the individuals threw a few tires on the tracks and lit them.
Video shows they also threw wooden pallets to fuel the fire.
Another video shows other eco-radical anti-pipeline protestors standing on a track as a train came barrelling at them. They only moved out of the way in the last minute after their attempt to stop the train failed.
