Hundreds of students came from all over the Bay Area to protest recent Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids, including one that took place in the Mission last week.

Teenagers painted their faces in black and white as the protest took place on Halloween and just a few days before the Day of the Dead celebrations.

Chants of “El pueblo unido jamás será vencido” could be heard through the streets of downtown San Francisco as demonstrators marched to the ICE headquarters where some protesters chained themselves to barrels that read “No one is illegal.”

Students took turns at the microphone and shared their anger towards ICE officers. Some cried after sharing personal stories of family members being arrested by ICE.

Three BART stations were temporarily closed after protesters in the East Bay jumped the gates to join the demonstration in San Francisco.
