Camino Americano Rally 2013 31

Washington DC, near The National Mall, Tuesday, October 8 2013. Thousands rally for immigrant dignity and justice. Around 200 activists, including 8 Democratic members of Congress, were arrested for their peaceful acts of civil disobedience, mainly because they crossed police lines by occupying the street in front of the US Capitol. Even though the US Government was still partially shut down the National Park Service and the Capital Police wisely made an exception for First Amendment activities.
