Catholic Workers Disrupt Twins Opener

Catholic Worker activists, led by Black Lives Matter Minneapolis and Black Liberation Project, link arms to block traffic outside the Twins Stadium before the season opener game.

Transit police confront the protesters.

A Black Lives Matter Minneapolis organizer leads chants in the middle of the intersection.

An elderly Twins fan shouts at the protesters.

After ordering them to stop blocking traffic, police arrest about two dozen protesters and take them to Hennepin County Jail.

A protester kneels to pray before being arrested.

Arrested protesters share a moment on the bus to jail. I love this photo because it’s so completely Erica (the woman pictured). How many people can brighten a bus ride to jail with this much joy?

The protesters are released less than an hour after being detained.
