Hundreds of Jamaicans from the southwest St. Ann parish blockaded roads used by a bauxite company in protest over dust and noise pollution experienced from “Sunday to Sunday”. Rumors also broke out that old bauxite pits would be opened again after decades which were closer to town and community centers. If this was done, many expect more frequent protests.
Through the week of 13-20 September 2020, several activist groups belonging to the O’Odham and Kumeyaay indigenous tribes have been arrested for protesting the wall and halting construction. 2 O’Ohdham activists have been arrested on Class B misdemeanor charges, while other Kumeyaay protesters have been brutalized by police.
