The girl was detained, and other activists said that they did not know about her plans.
July 4, the US Independence Day, a woman tried to climb onto one of the main symbols of the country’s ideology – the Statue of Liberty in New York. She did this shortly after opponents of the migration policy of Donald Trump staged a rally near the monument. Ordinary visitors were evacuated.

The police tried to talk to the woman and offered to go down voluntarily, but she refused and about two hours ( judging by the broadcast ) moved along the high part of the pedestal. The activist explained that she would go down when “all children were released” -a speech about children separated from their parents who illegally crossed the US border.
