This is the issue with border militarization. When we permit these kinds of racially-driven, governmental impositions into our lives, it disrespects and degrades all involved. For some in Arizona and towns within 100 miles of the border in many states, this kind of harassment is unending. People are being harassed and detained on the regular. In this video, we see a powerful act of passive, non-violent resistance against military presence in our every day lives.
