After a tense confrontation at the VFW post on Saturday, the anti-racist demonstrators set up camp and strategized about how to disrupt the racist border vigilante patrols at night. They used a tactic - the sonic attack crew - which involved shining flashlights at the vigilantes and talking to them using a sound system, thereby disrupting their ability to hear migrants crossing. Initially, the violent vigilantes threatened to kill the anti-racists, but the vigilantes eventually left the area. Call-in at 10:30am. 6 min
