You don't let any civilians blockade or threaten to blockade railways, roads, or whatnot.  That's not free speech, it's coercion and disturbing the peace and it's illegal.

Imagine any protest group with a strong opinion blocking city traffic whenever they felt like.  It would be chaos.

Governments are afraid of looking bad and hauling away natives in cuffs.  I don't blame them.  But it may be a critical error because it will just embolden them to do the same thing anytime they have a grievance.  Your level of outrage and victim group status, no matter how valid both are, don't give you license to shut down key infrastructure.

On the other hand, one can't help not also feeling bad for natives and sympathizing. 
I queef, therefore I am.
