On June 29th in South Dakota, Water Protector Sophia Wilansky (who’s arm was nearly blown off by police at Standing Rock) and members of WeCopwatch and the National Lawyers Guild were detained and searched in two different locations as they were in route to Sisseton Wahpeton Sioux Tribe Reservation.

The detentions happened in different parts of the state, but appear to be coordinated.

Videos have been submitted to the media and our legal team.

Everybody is in good spirits. We will provide updates should any other incidents occur.
