Ottawa police were called to help control a raucous crowd of protesters that gathered on Parliament Hill Monday to oppose the construction of an oil pipeline.

Around 100 students were ultimately arrested as a result of the protest, police said. Organizers of the event are calling the protest “the largest act of youth-led climate civil disobedience in Canadian history.”
