Israel's Elbit Systems manufactures deadly drones used in Palestine. Elbit also built spy towers on the Tohono O'odham Nation for use by another predator: The U.S. Border Patrol.

Activists from Palestine Action locked down in front of Elbit System's building in London, shutting it down for the third time in three weeks. The building was sprayed with red dye to represent the blood of Palestinians killed by the Israeli military.
At the same time, on the Tohono O'odham Nation, Elbit's spy towers now haunt traditional O'odham communities, allowing U.S. Border Patrol agents to stalk vulnerable O'odham.
