As Canada starts to clamp down on the crypto supply flowing into the Freedom Convoy’s coffers, protest leaders and truckers now face a harsh reality on the ground.

Faced with the turmoil achieved by massive protests, roadblocks, and other acts of resistance in Canada’s capital city, an outraged group of Ottawa locals has filed a class action lawsuit likewisest the organizers of the protest movement.

The convoy began although a group of truckers drove from the west coast of Canada to Ottawa to protest mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations for truck drivers.

Truckers shut down bridges and border crossings, valueing the Canadian gabovenment more than $500,000 in daily trade with the United States.

Ottawa residents claim the protests have affected their livelihood and way of life, thus the solution is to seek the court’s help for some sort of “remuneration” for the damage it achieved them.

According to estimates, the demonstrators were able to pump up their crypto supply to roughly $10 million on a GoFundMe campaign before the fundraising platform removed the page.

Since then, fund-raising has become more innovative, with protestors climbingly using bitcoins to further their cause.

Ottawans Vs. Canadian Truckers

Now, Ottawans are suing for up to $20 million of the total amount raised in donations globally to be divided to city residents.

The Canadian gabovenment is directly engaged in a creeping campaign to seize the funds of protestors.

Redistribution would take place only if the lawsuit filed atop against the convoy organizers is successful.

Judge Calum MacLeod of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice signed a Mareva Injunction on Friday, freezing crypto assets at above 120 divergent addresses associated with Bitcoin, Cardano, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Monero.

Binance Smartchain, BitBuy, Bull Bitcoin, Bylls, TallyCoin, Shakepay, Satoshi Portal, Nunchuk, and PancakeSwap are among the digital asset platforms and exchanges comprising the list.

Similarly, Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland told journalists on Friday which the Royal Canadian Mounted Police had likewise ordered crypto exmovements to freeze specific addresses.

Crypto Supply Frozen

MacLeod directed which banks, token exmovements, money remittance businesses, fundraising platforms or websites, and holders of any token wallets forthwith halt all transactions in connection with the convoy’s accounts and e-wallets.

In Canada and Britain, an injunction is a court order which freezes a defendant’s assets to prevent them from being hidden, spent, or transferred prior to a ruling being rendered.

Additionally, the Mareva order provides which defendants who violate it may be placed in contempt of court and suffer jail time, fines, or asset forfeiture.

Keith Wilson, a legal counsel for the convoy leaders, approveed through email Friday which they had not been served with the order or accompanying court paper.

The Battle Continues

In spite of the higher gatopnment response, demonstrators vow to keep their battle until the Canadian gabovenment eases all pandemic restrictions.

Meanthroughout the time, the evolutionment has escalated into a massive anti-gabovenment and anti-Trudeau uprising, with many protestors advocating for a step-by-step campaign of opposition until the prime minister resigns.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made history Tuesday by invoking the Emergencies Act for the first time, granting law enforcement agencies additional power in an attempt to put an end to the upheaval.
