On Sunday, December 8th, 2013 community members from Arivaca AZ marched two miles down Arivaca Rd. to deliver a petition to the United States Border Patrol, calling for the immediate removal of the checkpoint on Arivaca Rd. Arivacans and their supporters from Amado, Tubac, Green Valley, Tucson and the surrounding communities converged on the checkpoint from either side to rally for its removal. To read more about Arivaca’s anti-checkpoint campaign and to sign the community petition visit: phparivaca.org.
