Protestors gathered in Columbus, Ohio to protest the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) by erecting a 32-foot-tall tripod, but began chanting “fuck the police” after police officers deconstructed the tripod Monday morning.

Columbus Dispatch reporter Abbey Marshall reported on the protest:

I’m on Front St. at a rally to abolish ICE. A woman is harnessed in a 32-foot-tall tripod with a person duct taped to the base. They say she’s not coming down until action is taken. At least 14 cop cars and fire are present.

The woman has been released from her harness and brought down by Columbus Fire. A man is still duct taped by his hands at the base of the tripod. At least two people have been arrested so far.

I was told by police at least eight people have been arrested for various charges, including disorderly conduct. The 8-10 people in the LeVeque Tower have been removed from the ICE office for trespassing, police said.

The article goes on to state the following:

In a Facebook live video published by WSYX ABC 6, protestors can be heard chanting, “fuck the police,” repeatedly as police officers broke down the 32-foot-tall tripod and placed it in the back of the police van.

According to WZWX:

A protest against U.S. immigration policy and recent deportations temporarily shut down a street in Ohio’s capital, resulting in 12 arrests.

The report goes on to say:

Protesters blocked the street across from City Hall in Columbus and around the corner from the Ohio Statehouse Monday morning by erecting three wooden poles in a tall tripod.

Protesters shouted “No borders” and held signs such as “No Borders! No Wall! We Want Freedom For All!”

Police say charges against the protesters include disorderly conduct and failure to comply.
