    Some border wall protestors planning a campaign of civil disobedience

    By Joey Gomez and Steve Taylor
    So far, protests against the border wall in the Rio Grande Valley have been peaceful and lawful, such as this event in Brownsville last December. (File photo: RGG/Steve Taylor)


    EDINBURG, June 6 - Some opponents of the border fence are preparing civil disobedience when the bulldozers move into the Rio Grande Valley late next month.


    Speaking in an individual capacity, members of the No Border Wall coalition told the Guardian that a number of protests are planned, both locally and nationally. Members of the group made the comments after speaking out against the levee-wall plan at this week’s Hidalgo County Commissioner’s Court meeting.

    "Distrust and caution are the parents of security."
