Provincial students took action on Wednesday, March 4. Ontario student marches were taking place at and near a number of high-profile schools including the University of Toronto. Video and photo footage shows the swelling crowds, which appear to be marching in solidarity with the ongoing pipeline protests.\nOn Wednesday, students took to the streets to show their solidarity with First Nations like Wet'suwet'en Nation who have been carrying out blockades across the country.\nAnd social media was inundated with photos and videos of the young marchers. Students can be heard and seen chanting and holding signs.\nAccording to a tweet by The Post Millenial, University of Toronto students could be heard chanting "land back" and blocking traffic.\nProtestors apparently blocked off St. George Street by the corner of Wilcox Street on campus, also chanting “How do you spell racist? RCMP!" according to the Post Millenial.\nA Toronto Police Services tweet stated officers were on U of T grounds and people should expect delays northbound and southbound on St George St. as it is closed from Harbord St. to Willcocks St.\nStudents, alongside some teachers and faculty members, appear to have joined a call-and-response chant with one professor, Uahikea Maile.\nA video shared online shows the prof leading a protest chant "reconciliation is what?" and students responding with "dead."\nHAPPENING NOW: University of Toronto Professor Uahikea Maile leads protesting students in a chant of "reconciliation is dead!" pic.twitter.com/pQ6ho91QYp— The Post Millennial (@TPostMillennial) March 4, 2020\nwet'suwet'en solidarity demo by university of toronto students, chanting "how do you spell 'racist'?
