The activist video project, "We Say No," is a participatory concept in which anyone who wishes may voice their opinion on the 700 mile long proposed border fence between the United States and Mexico. Attendees are encouraged to step into a video booth and have their opinions recorded about the proposed dividing fence. The two-minute statements from this project will be used in a documentary made in collaboration with The Ministry of Culture, Imix Books and Patricia Cunliffe.
