Calvo and Rosemary discuss their experiences of organizing for resistance with Frontera Water Protectors as well as working with their small community in Texas on the border with Mexico. Not only are they water protectors resisting pipelines and fracking but they resist all forms of oppression and degradation that effect their community and encourage others to also resist all forms of oppression. Rosemary also discusses the evolution of indigenous identity for Mexicans who historically faced even more oppression for identifying as indigenous.
