Over 30 activists and allies of the migrant advocacy group Solidarity Across Borders staged an occupation of the Montreal office of the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) on Tuesday, May 3.

"Our aim was to disturb, for a day, [the CBSA's] work and to pass along our message," Romina Hernandez, an active member of Solidarity Across Borders, told rabble in a phone interview.
