Activists Re-Purpose Billboard to Send a Message [VIDEO]


The billboard once read: “We make junk disappear” — an advertisement for a junk removal firm, but the artists altered it overnight to read: “We make kids disappear,” signed “ICE.”

The billboard is located in Emeryville and faces an area where several hundred thousand commuters drive each day on their way into San Francisco. The activist group Indecline has taken credit for the act of political vandalism.  Indecline said the action was a direct response to “President Trump’s handling of the current immigration crisis, particularly, the separation of young children from their families.”  “I think it’s a pretty powerful political statement,” said Heran Medhin. “I think ultimately we have to be concerned with children. They didn’t do anything to deserve to be separated from their parents.”
