    Also, it is not shown in the video, but this fucking guy was one of the first people on the scene, he jumped under the Immigration Enforcement van and he hung on under it for 8 hours, to prevent it from leaving with the two men and to gain time while more people gathered to protest the arrests.



    This is what direct action and community solidarity can do! Be like "Van Man" and the 200+ people who resisted that day! Fuck borders!
