70 arrested in NYC demanding ‘close the camps!’

Hundreds of people demanding the closing of detention camps on the U.S.-Mexico border joined in an energetic protest that began at the New York Public Library in Manhattan on Sept. 14. Protesters marched to Microsoft’s 5th Avenue store where they sat in the entrance demanding that the company stop doing business with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. When the activists moved onto 5th Avenue, police arrested more than 70 people. A coalition of organizations called the “Close the Camps” action.
