Sun Nov 27 2016 (Updated 12/01/16)Nationwide Solidarity as Police Escalate Violence Against Water Protectors
The Standing Rock Sioux Nation called for indigenous nations and others to stand in solidarity as they fight to prevent continued construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline in their ancestral lands, especially near the Missouri River. Since April, indigenous Water Protectors have maintained a camp for cultural preservation and spiritual resistance. The demonstration attracted international attention after historic and sacred sites were bulldozed in September. Thousands have protested the corporate abuse of the land and the environmental dangers of the pipeline in North Dakota and across the country.
Courts have issued injunctions but overall have not been sympathetic to the cause of the Standing Rock Sioux Nation. Since federal agencies blocked construction under the Missouri River in early September, police have greatly increased the violence unleashed against the Water Protectors. Hundreds of demonstrators have been arrested and injured by police weaponry including projectiles, tear gas, and water canons used in below freezing temperatures. Now, federal authorities are threatening to close the NoDAPL camp by December 5, but protesters promise continued resistance.
