"...toxic waste, nuclear waste doesn't go to the residential zones of New York or Washington. It gets sent to Indian territory" comments Subcomandante Marcos while talking with communities in the northern Mexican state, Sonora, close to the U.S. border. In the middle of the desert and in the ancestral territory of the indigenous Papago (O'odham) peoples, the federal government has already authorized the construction of a toxic waste dump. The Quitovac people, located at the heart of the conflict, is searching for a way to change its death sentence.
