Standing Rock - update

Standing Rock - update

This is a brief update. I'd hoped Obama would use his authority to deescalate the situation at Standing Rock. These people, American citizens, are protesting eminent domain of their sacred lands. They are joined by representatives, peaceful demonstrators, from hundreds of other indigenous groups and social justice concerns. It's Thanksgiving Week. On Monday night they were water cannoned, tear-gassed, and shot with rubber bullets. It's so cold at the site, peaceful protestors are told not to come unless they can bring something sturdier than a tent (something with walls) to get through the nights. 

Please check out Vance Blackfox's letter to our readers.

"As resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline in Standing Rock, N.D., concludes its seventh month, two narratives have emerged:

  1. We have never seen anything like this before.
  2. This has been happening for hundreds of years."
