September 5, 2019

Story Transcript

MARC STEINER: Welcome to The Real News Network. I’m Marc Steiner. Great to have you all with us.

As many of you know, we interviewed Will Parrish about his article on the Israeli defense contractor Elbit Systems, that designed and is running some of the most sophisticated surveillance systems on our border with Mexico. This experiment, this contract, is on Tohono O’odham Nation land. The reality is, it’s not only dangerous to our future civil liberties and freedom in this country, but once again becomes an invasive threatening presence on Native land. The Tohono O’odham people have lived on what is now the border for thousands of years. It spans US and Mexico, and the border surveillance are dividing this nation – are having a huge negative effect on those people.
