Scuffles broke out between federal authorities and protesters during an hour-long standoff at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in southwestern Arizona.
The O’odham Anti Border Collective were protesting against the construction of a US-Mexico border going up in the Quitobaquito region of the National Forest – an area with a spring the O’odham people consider sacred.
Border Patrol agents and National Park officers eventually managed to disperse the demonstration and continued the construction.
