During the snake march, some protesters wrecked newspaper boxes, smashed windows, and got into violent confrontations. According to the Vancouver police, there were seven arrests.
However, the majority of the crowd peacefully chanted slogans like "No Games on stolen Native land"; "2010 homes, not 2010 Games"; "Whose streets? Our streets"; and "No justice, no peace, fuck the police".
Here are some scenes from the 2010 Heart Attack protest.
