Nobody ever said civil disobedience was safe. When protesters take to the freeways to make their outrage known, it’s a wonder more people aren’t struck by surprised or angry motorists.
That’s what happened to Maria Ana Carrola Flores, a student at the University of California, San Diego. Flores was among 500 or so demonstrators who marched from the La Jolla campus to Interstate 5 in the early morning hours of Nov. 9, 2016. They were angry about a presidential election that didn’t go their way.
