Statement in support of the Elena Rodríguez family

 
The faculty and staff of the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Arizona join many in the Tucson community in expressing our support and admiration for the family of 16-year-old José Antonio Elena Rodríguez, who was killed by Border Patrol agent Lonnie Swartz on October 10, 2012. Swartz fired 16 bullets from behind the border fence in the U.S., hitting unarmed José Antonio, who was on the Mexico side of the border fence. The bullets struck José Antonio eight times in the back and twice in the head.

One form of collective action and engaged scholarship in this regard is the Climate Alliance Mapping Project (CAMP), a recently initiated collaboration between academics, environmental NGOs, and Indigenous organizations to address climate change at its roots.
