tucson activist walt staton

i leave tucson tomorrow.

anonymity will soon be mine.

have you heard about the fate of walt staton? he left lifesaving water out in the desert and is now facing the possibility of jail time because he "knowingly" littered. it's pretty ridiculous, especially considering walt and other no more deaths folks routinely go out into the desert to pick up trash. so far this year, around 80 people have died crossing into az from mexico. they died because they didn't have water. i hear walt is in good spirits about it all and is optimistic that he can appeal the decision. good luck, walt.

check out the democracy now piece on him.
