Activists at a\u00a0Latin alt-rock\u00a0festival in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood disassembled\u00a0a mock wall installation at a Home Depot promotional booth on Saturday (June 8), as Remezcla reports. Intended as an art project, the\u00a0installation allowed\u00a0Ruido Fest attendees to illustrate and mount decorative tiles\u2014but at a Latin festival in the age of Donald Trump, the "wall" symbolism was poorly received. It didn't help that\u00a0Home Depot co-founder\u00a0Bernie Marcus was\u00a0an outspoken\u00a0endorser\u00a0of\u00a0Trump's candidacy, although he\u00a0retired from the company in 2002. Ruido Fest protestors first asked a Home Depot representative to remove the wall,\u00a0artist and community organizer\u00a0Amara Betty Martin told Remezcla.\u00a0\u201cI explained to him the climate that we\u2019re living in and that this is an all-Latino festival\u2026 this art project\u2014even though it seemed innocent\u2014it was psychologically sending another message to the community," she said. Martin said activists also contacted festival organizers, but when they received no response, she put out a call for direct action. Activists dismantled\u00a0the wall themselves, prompting a\u00a0physical altercation with\u00a0festival security. Home Depot representatives\u00a0eventually removed the remainder of the installation. When the festival resumed on Sunday, Home Depot's entire booth was gone. \u201cWe were participating in the festival to show our support for the community, so this was an unfortunate misunderstanding. The project was intended to show attendees how easy it is to lay tile for bathrooms, backsplashes, and other applications,\u201d a\u00a0Home Depot representative said in a statement.
