On Monday, police arrested activists and supporters from the teepee near the Sask. Legislature in Regina — all that was left of the Justice for Our Stolen Children camp.
The people were arrested for obstruction of justice, according to the Regina Police Service. No charges had been laid as of early Monday afternoon.
Another man removed and placed in handcuffs. It seems everyone in the teepee is being placed under arrest, although police not have explicitly said that. <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/skpoli?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#skpoli</a> <a href=”https://t.co/vqGBmLOWY8″>pic.twitter.com/vqGBmLOWY8</a>

The camp was set up after Gerald Stanley and Raymond Cormier were acquitted in the Colten Boushie and Tina Fontaine murder trials.
Founders said the intention was to draw attention to Indigenous lives lost or affected due to factors like violence, foster care or addictions.
