Video recorded by Rebel News reporter Mocha Bezirgan shows a police officer in Montreal, Canada choke a man who was laying on the ground in the process of an arrest for not wearing a face mask outside and in public.
The man, who had already been tackled on the ground by police and was in the process of being subdued by a crowd of regular police and riot control police during a lockdown protest in Montreal, Canada, began shouting at the officers. Seconds later, a riot police officer used his left hand to restrain and choke the man by his neck, prompting members of the crowd to begin shouting. Police officers then attempted to block the cameras recording the scene.
Bezirgan then interviewed a woman at the scene who is apparently the mother of the man arrested and choked by police. Frantically, she told Bezirgan “They said he was not wearing a mask and they grabbed him. Four of them grabbed him and shot him to the floor and held him like he was George Floyd, I thought they were going to kill him.” I was trying to ask them, it’s terrible. They’re pathetic traitors, they’re disgusting.”

Bezirgan suggested the mother visit Rebel News’ website, Fight The Fines, where the Canadian media company connects those who receive fines from the Canadian government for not wearing face masks with legal representation. According to Rebel News, “We already have taken on hundreds of cases, and we’ve hired a team of lawyers to defend every single Canadian who gets a lockdown ticket.” They add, “And we’re going to fight them all. We’ve even won many of our cases already!”
National File recently interviewed Artur Pawlowski, the Polish-Canadian pastor who repeatedly had his church services interrupted by Canadian police, and has now been threatened with arrest for continuing to hold church services and feed the homeless despite unscientific COVID-19 lockdowns. Pawlowski told National File that he also receives legal representation made possible by Rebel News.
