Truth-tellers on border lands make Censored News possible



Human rights abusers and profiteers on the Arizona border: The U.S. Border Patrol, Elbit Systems based in Israel, militarized security.

The people who live on the land at the border are the ones who expose the truth.

Many years ago, one of my friends on the border spotted an Israeli ATV on the border south of Tucson.

I researched it and found out that border contacts were going from the U.S. government to the Israeli defense contractor Elbit Systems. It is based in Israel and protested around the world for human rights abuses in Palestine.

That was more than 15 years ago.

Currently, Elbit has completed 10 spy towers -- integrated fixed towers -- on the Tohono O'odham Nation, violating O'odham burial places, and placing vulnerable O'odham at risk.
