May 29, Forth Snelling, Minnesota. Minnesotans of many ethnicities gathered to support the Arizona Boycott in protest of new immigration law (SB1070) and to prevent introduction of similar laws there. The rally was combined with a Native American rally to take down Fort Snelling. The group marched to Fort Selling, and after the rally, many entered without paying to occupy the parade ground in the fort. Outnumbered by police and threatened with confinement over the long weekend, the group left vowing to return.
