A world where guns are welcome, but refugees and migrants are not. A world where children are being locked up. We are calling for a different kind of society.\u0022Representatives of Amnesty International held a banner demanding, \u0022End Family Detention\u0022 while others held puppets depicting Trump.Thanks @amnesty for your important work in these hard times.
