The number of tents outside city hall continues to grow as Nathan Phillips Square is occupied by protestors for the sixth consecutive day, reports BlogTO.

About 30 tents to occupy the space between the front doors of City Hall and the skate park as the protestors call for the abolition of the police force.

The protest has been going on since last Friday and is being led by Afro Indigenous Rising (AIR). So far it has been peaceful.

The Post Millennial reported from the protest on Monday.

AIR is demanding that the government and police put an end to police brutality and anti-black racism along with violence against indigenous communities.

A number of signs at the protest show support for Indigenous people killed by the police or RCMP, murdered and missing indigenous women and Black Lives Matter.

Organizers are asking for donations of water, food, tents, snacks and PPE to be brought to the medic tent, as well as seeking volunteers who specialize in mental health training, de-escalation or marshalling.

Indigenous and black communities have been participating in traditional singing and drumming over the last few days.

More than $28,000 has been raised by AIR through a GoFundMe campaign which has a goal of $40,000. According to the collective, additional funds will be used to support rent relief, bail funds, as well as support for the Indigenous, Afro and LGBTQ community.

The protest turned occupation mirrors the one currently underway in Seattle, where business owners have brought suit against the city for ignoring their concerns and abandoning their neighborhood to lawless occupiers.
