Capitol Police charged Kimiya Factory with Civil Disobedience after she and others refused to stop singing inside U.S. Senate offices Thursday.
SAN ANTONIO — Capitol police arrested San Antonio activist Kimiya Factory and eight others, including a member of Congress, during a peaceful protest in Washington, D.C. Thursday.
U.S. Rep. Joyce Beatty, D-Ohio, led roughly 20 people through the Senate office building to raise awareness about the ‘For the People Act.’ The resolution would prevent states like Texas from passing tighter voting laws.
“It felt like time stopped,” Factory said in an interview with KENS 5. “Officials were coming out of their offices, staring down at us.”
