Wednesday afternoon, July 4, in NEW YORK CITY, a woman protesting the separation of migrant families attempted went out o the iconic LIBERTY ISLAND and attempted to climb the STATUE Of LIBERTY!!!
"At first, she wasn't friendly with us, but we took the time to get a rapport with her so that took a while,"
She just kind of mentioned the kids in Texas. I guess the whole debate that's going on about that. In the beginning, she threatened to push us off, push the ladder off, but we stayed with her,"
At first she was being a little combative, then she was willing to cooperate with us. She actually apologized to us for having to go up and get her,"
"She climbed without our knowledge. It was not part of our action,"
... they supported Okoumou and that members are "working to secure the best legal representation" for her.
"We thought we wanted to do something on our Independence Day, a day that obviously is meant for reflection on the ideals on which this nation was founded. This country has posited itself as a beacon. Right now, we have a government that is actively turning its back on those ideals,"-CCG
