Depiction: Three women sit on railroad tracks with their arms around each other. They are talking with a sheriff's deputy who is trying to get them to move. Two other deputies have tackled another protestor and are placing him under arrest. A large crowd stands along the tracks and watches. Other officers are ushering protestors away from the scene. One man wears a sign around his neck reading "There's blood on those tracks."
