Students at the University of Arizona have installed a mock border fence, topped with barbed wire, in the middle of the campus.
The fence, which is seven feet tall and four hundred feet long, was installed by a coalition led by the UA chapter of No More Deaths, a humanitarian organization whose mission, according to the group, “is to end death and suffering on the U.S./Mexico border through civil initiative.”
The coalition that built the fence intend it as a protest not only of the wall at the US-Mexico border, but also of the wall separating Israel from the West Bank.
Students planned the project over a period of eight months, obtaining all necessary permits and permissions. The fence will be up on campus for ten days.
