Pro-lockdown protesters assault & assail Rebel News reporter & demand that Alberta bring back public health restrictions
Over the last year, we’ve seen our fair share of anti-lockdown protests.
These protests have taken place across Canada and around the world and are often attended by friendly freedom-minded individuals who are fed up with government overreach.

These protesters insist that they’re a tolerant and loving crowd who just want to save lives, but their behaviour that day was not reflective of their claims.
As you can see, the tensions were extremely high at this protest, and for that reason, we brought two bodyguards to keep my cameraman and me safe.
P.S. Making sure our reporters are protected from aggressive protesters is very important to us. That’s why we hire bodyguards while we report from hostile territory. If you want to help us recoup those costs, please click here to donate or visit JournalistDefenceFund.com.
P.P.S. We’re still looking for the protester who assaulted my cameraman and have put up a $500 reward for any information leading to her arrest. If you
