Today youth from all over the Bay Area (including Richmond, Oakland, and even Sacramento) have pulled off a powerful and visionary action. The call? Stop the Raids!! Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have been escalating their raids on our communities, tearing apart families and terrorizing immigrant youth. It's time for us to say Enough is Enough! More images and updates to come!
UPDATE: Around 5:30pm this evening, after successfully blocking off the ICE headquarters until after the end of the work day, activists locked down declared victory!
Activists took over Sansome Street and continued the nonviolent protest into the evening.
