Hundreds of activists with @NeverAgainActn are marching on ICE HQ in Washington DC right now. One group of organizers has shut down the main entrance to the HQ, while another seems to be inside the building. #ShutDownICE
Livestream from the @NeverAgainActn group inside ICE HQ in DC. The daughter of an Auschwitz survivor is speaking now.
Video from outside @NeverAgainActn ICE HQ action—they've shut down the off-ramp of a highway that leads to the building, the building's garage, and the building's main entrance. facebook.com/NeverAgainActi…
Someone on the livestream just said @NeverAgainActn has shut down all entrances to the DHS building where ICE HQ is located. Trying to confirm. #ShutDownICE facebook.com/NeverAgainActi…
"We are shutting down every entry point to the Department of Homeland Security." Wow. #ShutDownICE

Today's #ShutDownICE action is a joint action by @NeverAgainActn and @CosechaMovement. Just saw word that 72 people are risking arrest to shut down DHS right now.
Again, @NeverAgainActn says they're shutting down all access to DHS HQ: Building entrances, the garage, the primary highway exit that leads to the building.
And a major street road as well. Every time I turn around, @NeverAgainActn and @CosechaMovement have shut something else down.
Update: #ShutDownICE activists have shut down all pedestrian entrances to DHS HQ, the building's garage, TWO streets, and the nearest highway off ramp. And they have a group occupying inside the lobby of the building.
"We are doing what our elected officials will not do: We are shutting down ICE." —From the livestream. #ShutDownICE facebook.com/NeverAgainActi…
Arrests at #ShutDownICE action at DHS HQ have begun. I've seen reports that 72 or more activists are risking arrest today.
I got a heads-up over the weekend that today's #ShutDownICE action was going to be big, but I didn't have any idea it'd be this big.
Just heard on the livestream that access to DHS HQ has been shut down for more than an hour at this point. #ShutDownICE
Police have arrested a dozen activists inside DHS HQ, but they can't take them away because activists have blocked all the buidling's entrances and its garage ramp. #ShutDownICE
Again, #ShutDownICE is a joint action by @NeverAgainActn and @CosechaMovement, now in the second hour of shutting down all pedestrian and vehicular access to DHS HQ in Washington DC.
If you're wondering how you can get involved, @NeverAgainActn is holding a conference call TOMORROW NIGHT to start planning the next round of local actions to #ShutDownICE. Join in: neveragainaction.com/campaign-call
Buzzfeed reporter tweeting from the scene of today's #ShutDownICE action:
Washington Post reporter on the scene notes that the cops have shut down one of the streets that #ShutDownICE activists hadn't already taken care of.
Update: Cops have begun arresting activists outside DHS HQ. #ShutDownICE
The livestream was down for a while, but it's back up now. #ShutDownICE facebook.com/NeverAgainActi…
And now they're staging a mass blockade of the street! These folks just don't quit. #ShutDownICE
I'm not sure I've got this 100% right, but it looks like the DHS cops surrounded the entrance to the garage, which had previously been blockaded by activists. So the activists ... surrounded the cops. #ShutDownICE
If you're wondering what it looks like when a bunch of activists surround a bunch of DHS cops who've just surrounded a bunch of their comrades, this is what that looks like: #ShutDownICE
