In light of today’s incident in Ottawa, during which a soldier was shot dead, it’s important to recall how the Royal Canadian Mounted Police attempted to stage violence during a protest in order to frame innocent Canadians.
Following the SPP protests in Canada in 2007, Quebec provincial authorities were forced to admit that three rock-wielding black mask-wearing “anarchists” were in fact police infiltrators used to gather information on protesters.
Video shows two of the provocateurs pick up rocks and try to incite violence before they are outed as cops by legitimate demonstrators. The two thugs then tried to slip behind police lines before their fellow officers were forced to stage their arrest. Again, the fact that they were cops in disguise was later admitted by authorities. Watch the video.
Images taken during the staged arrest clearly show that the two “anarchists” were wearing the same standard issue boots as the rest of the police officers.
Using police infiltrators to stage violence, which is then used to demonize legitimate protesters and justify a brutal crackdown, is a tactic that has been used by law enforcement authorities across the world over the last two decades.
