There a few hundred people left in the camp who Stand on land that belongs to them legally through Treaty of Fort Laramie (1851). The land that the people will be arrested on today on the charges of trespassing, is land that the U.S. Government gave to the Native American people as reservation land.
There are 100’s of U.S. military veterans at a nearby camp who have vowed to march in and provide a human shield between police/military and the Water Protectors. Today could get intense. Almost every confrontation in this unfolding story has been one of police brutality to unarmed, peaceful, and prayerful people who are standing for clean water and a future for themselves, their children, and their grandchildren.
Cell coverage at the camps is being blocked and limited media has been allowed in. There is a black out on one of the most important stories of our times. Please cover this story to the best of your ability with whatever resources you have available.
This land, like many other areas, was illegally claimed/taken back by the U.S Government because of its’ resource and value.
Standing Rock also represents a people standing up for clean water and a system that RESPECTS the natural environment that WE ALL NEED in order to survive.
Projects like Dakota Access Pipeline destroy all that we need to survive. The pipes break, leak, contaminating the drinking water and land that will take decades if not longer to recover, killing all life.
