This happened July 8 2010, when activists in both Washington DC and New York City came out to perform civil disobedience and hold rallies to demand Major League Baseball keep the All Star games out of Arizona. Protesters urged Major League Baseball to honor the boycott against SB1070, the racist anti-immigrant law.
Luckily for you, we had people shooting video in both places– and with some creative editing we are able to show you what happened in both cities!
