Ellen Page Is Protesting, Are You?

Ellen Page

Ellen Page is not one to sit at home when liberties are threatened.

The out actress — who in the past has lent her voice to LGBT activism in Vice's Gaycation — has joined the protesters at the Los Angeles International Airport.

Page posted videos Sunday of the #NoBanNoWall demonstration, which protests President Trump's recent executive order limitating immigration.

On Twitter, Page urged Angelenos to join her at the demonstration. "Come on LA! 1pm LAX," she wrote, retweeting Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King.

Sunday marks the second day Page joined protesters at the airport. The Juno actress, who posted images of the protest to Twitter, politely declined an interview with The Advocate on Saturday.

Thousands of demonstrators, including Democratic Senators Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker, flocked to airports across the nation this weekend to speak out against Trump's ban, which applied 120 days to all refugees and 90 days to travelers from predominantly Muslim nations. Federal judges issued a temporary block on part of the order.

Page participated in last weekend's Women's March on Washington, in which she also used her social media accounts to raise awareness of the demonstration. While there, she made headlines for debating with a homophobic preacher.

Protests of the immigration ban are taking place Sunday at airports in cities across the United States. Watch another video of the LAX demonstration posted by Page below.
