VIDEO: Militarization of Tohono O'odham Nation

Part II: The US Border Patrol and military continue to abuse the rights of the Tohono O'odham in their homeland. US Border Patrol agents also continue to physically and sexually abuse migrants, including Mayan women walking to survive, from Guatemala, Chiapas and Oaxaca. Ervin and Angie Ramon, whose son Bennett Patricio, Jr., was run over and killed by the Border Patrol, describe the daily abuses and high speed recklessness of the Border Patrol that prevents a peaceful existence with the land and way of life in their desert homeland.
Recorded Nov. 17, by Earthcycles and Censored News, in preparation for the Southern Border Indigenous Peoples Roundtable Symposium on Thursday, Nov. 18, 2010, hosted by the Alianza Indigena sin Fronteras.
