Tohono O'odham and Arizona residents continued protests today on the
Arizona border, where plants, animals and O'odham culture are in peril.
They are standing against the prosecution of humanitarian aid volunteers, and the U.S. Israeli spy towers (integrated fixed towers) now targeting the Tohono O'odham Nation. They stand in opposition to the border wall construction now devastating endangered species, depleting precious water and desecrating sacred Native cultural places.
