Students take over Hart Building in protest for clean DREAM act

On the 9th of November, an estimated 1,000 students walked out of DC schools and swarmed the Hart Senate Office Building for a loud protest demanding that a DREAM act be passed. Such a bill would protect young migrants brought here as children from being rounded up at deported, in some cases to countries they've never even seen. Protesters linked the Atrium galleries and dropped banners, demanding a clean bill with no provisions harming other migrants or border communities. At least one arrest was reported.

It is incumbent upon anyone who values dissent to stand in solidarity with the defendents in this case.
