Here's Jim Rigby's Facebook post about Monday's protest -

"The movement that will save our nation is a grassroots people's movement based on the principles of solidarity, not on heroes at the top.

Our act of civil disobedience yesterday at the Governor's office was designed so that the media attention fell on Greg Casar and we clergy who were carrying the banner for the event. On the inside of the building was a completely different reality. When push came to shove, it was absolutely clear there was a team of 18 of us being getting arrested, all equally important to the moment.

We were also surrounded by organizers, lawyers and a support team who had much harder roles than we. In fact, it felt like those of us being arrested had the easy part. The planners and care team were much more nervous than we. How hard is it to get arrested for just sitting? Those poor lawyers are going to be working to support us in court us for months to come.

Even though the lobby of the building was filled with chanting and with speeches, we also knew that the moment was much bigger even than our whole group. Just when we would begin to lag in energy, someone else showed up to support what was happening.

We were so grateful when students from the University came marching in to show support. There were wonderful Austin activists from other causes dropping by in solidarity as well.

And, words can't describe what it felt like, at the end of a very long and exhausting day, just as we were about to be arrested, to see the Worker's Defense Project marching in mass chanting, "The people united will never be defeated!"

Because I expected to spend the night in jail I left my cell phone home. Still there were enough cell phones to feel support from all over our city, state and nation. Everyone involved was just as essential and just as important as anyone else to the movement. Whoever ordered the pizza was a life saver.

None of us forgot for a moment that the heartbeat of this movement is the undocumented immigrant community itself. Their courage, wisdom and love is our guiding light.

Even though none of us is the hero in a people's movement, we can each have our heroic moments, and, yesterday, we were surrounded by them."
