Morton County, ND, October 14, 2016 — Attorneys with the Red Owl Legal Collective (ROLC) of the National Lawyers Guild (NLG) call on North Dakota law enforcement to respect freedom of press and the First Amendment rights of Water Protectors resisting construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). This comes as officers from the Morton County Sheriff’s Department unlawfully confiscated a reporter’s video equipment, and then deployed riot police on Indigenous Peoples’ Day, arresting 29 Water Protectors during a prayer gathering.
