The exposure of heavily-armed masked guards around a mining site in Wisconsin has led to another exposure, identifying private security contractors on the US/Mexico border.The company is Bulletproof Securities and its clients include the Salt River Project, the operator of the dirty Arizona coal fired power plant located on Navajoland, the Navajo Generating Station.Bulletproof Securities boasts of its work on the US/Mexico border, on its website. It names several US agencies that it says it has a strong relationship with. Those are the same US agencies that were recently exposed for spying on Navajo and Tohono O’odham human rights activists who oppose the militarization of O'odham lands, and the exploitation by the dirty coal industry of Navajoland. http://bsnorrell.blogspot.com/2013/05/tohono-oodham-and-arizona-police-stalk.html
Today's exposure comes as Tohono O’odham and other Native people who are abused by US Border Patrol agents and private security contractors have been questioning who these new heavily-armed contractors are lurking around the border. The contractors have refused to identify themselves.In Wisconsin, lawmakers asked mining company Gogebic Taconite to remove the armed security guards from proposed mining sites, after frightening photos surfaced from the proposed iron ore mining site on Saturday.
