Undocumented Protesters Arrested at the DNC

Nick Pinto writes on September 4th, a day full of protests from all sides at the DNC--including the "Undocubus":

Charlotte police arrested ten undocumented activists after they shut down an intersection just blocks from the Democratic National Convention in a coordinated act of civil disobedience.

The activists, all passengers on the Undocubus as part of the No Papers No Fear campaign that we wrote about earlier today, got off their bus at the corner of Fourth and Tryon in downtown Charlotte at 4pm, then led supporters and a substantial press entourage racing through the streets a few blocks northeast to the site of their action. Once in the intersection, they dropped a large banner and sat on it, holding up signs that read "Undocumented."
