SCENE & HEARD: Taking a stand

Last Saturday, some 700 marches and demonstrations were held around the country to protest family separation at the United States-Mexico border. Many islanders headed to off-island protests, including one in West Seattle and a large one at the Federal Detention Center in Sea-Tac.

On Vashon, about 40 people marched from Minglement to the heart of town, drawing many supportive honks along the way. Dianna Garrett, in the space blanket above, arranged this march, saying she did not do so as part of a group, but as a retired mother who is very upset about the way things in the country are going.
