A billboard in Emeryville was vandalized overnight, and the group of activists responsible changed the wording from “We make junk disappear,” to “We make kids disappear,” -ICE.
They also filmed the crime in progress along Interstate Highway 80 near the Shellmound Street exit, producing a video which is available online at https://vimeo.com/276240430.
An “activist art collective” calling itself INDECLINE has taken responsibility for the crime. They can be found online at thisisindecline.com.
In a statement emailed to local reporters this morning 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.”
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the altered billboard.
1-800-GOT-JUNK, the company that owns the vandalized advertisement, also did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
