Native burial sites blown up for US border wall



10 February 2020


Native American burial sites in Arizona have been blown up by construction crews building the US-Mexico border wall, according to lawmakers and tribal leaders.

Authorities confirmed that "controlled blasting" has begun in Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, a Unesco recognised natural reserve.

Raul Grijalva, a Democrat congressman, called the destruction "sacrilegious".

The government failed to consult the Tohono O'odham Nation, he said.

Environmental groups also warn of the damage being done to the local underground aquifer, as well as to migrating wildlife in the remote desert region about 115 miles (185km) west of Tucson.

Officials say the aim of the project is to construct a 30ft-tall (9m) steel barrier that runs for 43 miles on the national park land.

There is no end to their vulgarity and irresponsibility.

5. Sickening.

Just fucking sickening. I hope this turns Arizona blue in November, not that it will repair any of the damage already done. Too late for that.

7. We have Indian burial mounds all over our area and no one would think of violating them.

When highways are built/rerouted, there is no question that the mounds are not to be touched.

I hope they come back to haunt him. He is an evil, evil blob.

9. If we ever wondered how could there have been a genocide of Native Peoples, we have our answer.

White, republican men have zero reverence for anyone or anything but themselves.

Horrific, just horrific. We can add this to the horrible things Trump has done.
