Background info from the facebook event page:

In early February, dozens of Apache people walked 45 miles together for three days from the San Carlos community to the sacred site of Oak Flat. With support from the San Carlos Apache community and other activists in the region, a brave group of spiritual resistance leaders have held ground at Oak Flat since February, organized as the Apache Stronghold and vowing not to leave until the mine proposal is cancelled. The struggle for Oak Flat has been embraced by hundreds of American Indian nations and has become a symbol for the fight to protect all sacred sites. The Apache Stronghold caravan is leading this effort and is organizing an historic protest at the nations capitol on July 21-22.

“They declared war on our religion, we must stand in unity and fight to the very end, for this is a holy war.” Wendsler Nosie Sr. , long time opponent of Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Councilman of the San Carlos Apache Tribe.
