The Phoenix New Times reports that NSM activist J.T. Ready is organizing a border ops for Saturday June 19th, 2010, designed to search out and interdict illegal aliens and smugglers transiting through Arizona. He will be accompanied by at least one other NSM activist, Harry Hughes. The focus of attention will be on the Vekol Valley; Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu recently announced that "drug cartels" control the area in his county where deputy Louie Puroll was allegedly shot at, and where two men were recently gunned down. KPNX Channel 12 has picked up the story; watch news video embedded below:
The Phoenix New Times also reports that Ready posted his initial appeal for support on June 15th on this New Saxon blog. Ready also discusses it on this Stormfront thread. In case New Saxon goes off line, which has happened a couple of times recently, I repost the pertinent parts of it below:
Vekol Valley, Arizona
Saturday, 19th of June 2010
Situation - Armed Narco-Terrorists are bringing in loads of Chemical Warfare into our nation. These incursions should be treated no less serious than Al-Qaeda terrorists smuggling Sarin nerve agent into our population centers.
Equipment - Camouflage or earth tone clothing preferred. Plenty of water and water containers. MREs or field prepared meals are a plus. Valid I.D. on person and emergency contact information required. Military related gear a plus. Helmets, body armor, or related gear welcome but not required. Bring plenty of firearms and ammo. Bandannas, balaclavas, or other identity concealing items are permissible and encouraged.
Training - Firearms safety brief and Rules of Engagement will be covered for all interested parties.
Action - Show of force and solidarity of concerned patriots. NSM, Constitutional groups, Militias, Biker MCs, National Guard, Military, multi-state participation groups, etcetera; to stand the line near Interstate 8 to show the world that the line in the sand has been drawn. This is a completely legal venture and utmost professionalism and self-restraint is recommended.
Details of area will be given to confirmed participants only. This is the Minuteman Project on steroids!
Contact information is provided on the New Saxon post. The latest weather forecast for the area for Saturday shows mostly clear skies with overnight lows in the 70s and daytime highs in the low 100s, so bring at least TWO FULL CANTEENS OF WATER. J.T. Ready also says those who can't show up can also help. Send donations for water, food, ammo, toiletries to:

Mesa, AZ 85211-0571
There is considerable pro-White activism already scheduled for June 19th, with the American Third Position Party Conference in California and the Aryan Nations Rally in Gettysburg. But this NSM activism really counts; this is where the rubber meets the road, so to speak.
