30+ Arrested in Civil Disobedience at the Border Wall

Direct actions and measures of civil disobedience have been happening weekly down here in Tijuana. A few days ago, faith leaders organized hundreds of people from all over Turtle Island to march along the beach to the San Diego side of the border wall where they were greeted by 30+ border patrol agents carrying snipers, tear gas cans and batons.

ICE having covered their 30 foot bollards with triple layers of barb wire have also formed a rectangle of space on the sand and in the ocean water they claim is federal property although until recently, the public has always been able to walk freely in that space. Over 30 faith leaders and protestors who tested the waters, and pushed back on the hassle line riot cops created, were arrested and charged with misdemeanors of disobeying lawful orders.
