Phoenix, Arizona. April 25, 2012 - Phoenix Police officers line up along a section of northbound Central Avenue as demonstrators block the street in protest. Police made a formation to push back protesters toward the sidewalk.  About 500 people protested the controversial SB 1070 law on the same day U.S. Supreme Court justices heard legal arguments on the Arizona vs. United States case. At the end of the march, six activists blocked Central Avenue by sitting in the middle of the street. They all were arrested by the Phoenix Police Department and taken to the Fourth Avenue County Jail. Photo by Eduardo Barraza © 2012
