BREAKING: Dr. Scott Warren found NOT GUILTY on all charges for providing food, water, shelter, and medical care to two undocumented men. Yet again, No More Deaths has withstood the government’s attempts to criminalize basic human compassion.
This verdict is validation of what we have always known: that #humanitarianaidisneveracrime

We will continue to provide food, water, and medical aid to all those who need it, until the day that no one dies or disappears while crossing the deserts and oceans of the world.
On this day when so many eyes will be focused on Scott, we want to send our deepest love and solidarity to Jose and Kristian, and all those whose movement and survival continues to be criminalized. La lucha sigue.

Trial today began with video of the interrogation of the two men arrested with Dr. Warren, Jose and Kristian, detained until they testified, then deported. We acknowledge that these stories are not ours to tell, but we also don’t want their experiences to be erased.
Jose and Kristian are from Honduras and El Salvador, respectively. Like so many people who attempt this journey, they had traveled for months by the time they scaled the wall and entered the Arizona desert. #noalmuro #noborderwall
They described dropping their food and water after seeing @CBP in the desert near Ajo, but continued on through the cold, without any supplies. Jose explained how he navigated north - “Q: you know how to guide yourself by the starlight? A: By the stars, yes.”
