This past weekend, Cyndy Coppola was arrested on her family farm
after she was protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline construction
that was taking place on that same land.

Cyndy lives in Calhoun County, Iowa and has been actively
protesting the pipeline construction which is taking place on her
own family land, without her permission.

With her friend and well known Iowan "" target="_blank">Ed
, who is a peace activist and former Iowa state lawmaker,
the two were arrested Saturday for attempting to block trucks
carrying pipeline across her farmland. "" target="_blank">Bold Iowa, an
environmental alliance, was also present.

Coppola and her family are part of a lawsuit brought by nine
Iowa farms against Dakota Access for using eminent domain to gain
easements, which they say is against Iowa state law.

Cyndy said:

“It was very frustrating, and when I first saw that topsoil
piled up when they started digging, my first reaction was to cry,
because we’ve tried everything.”

In addition to unlawful land-grabs taking place in Calhoun
County, ""
target="_blank">video footage
of a pipeline worker has been
released in which he said to peaceful water protectors:

“How much for the little girl?”

Are we going to continue to allow this behavior to occur in
Calhoun County and other counties across the nation? You can reach
Calhoun County with questions or comments through email or by phone
at the "" target="_blank">link
. If you are in other counties, reach out to your local
county with questions or comments you may have.

While Cyndy and Ed said that the Sheriff’s Department of Calhoun
County has been very nice and respectful to them, it should still
be asked why Cyndy was arrested on her own property for opposing
construction she has never lawfully authorized.

Why are local Sheriff’s Departments across the involved states
allowing corporations to unlawfully violate the will of a living
human being by seizing her land to do with it what they want?

It is not all the County’s fault though. They are certainly
facing immense pressure from these parasitic corporations, as well
(though most likely not as directly) as from  href=
target="_blank">the 17 big banks that are funding
construction of this pipeline. Several of these banks are foreign
banks too, which range from the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Japan and
Scotland, among others. With multinational banks involved, do you
still really believe this has anything to do with “boosting the
local economy” and with “providing more local jobs?”

What our country and our world faces right now is a choice
whether we are going to sit by and watch corporations and banks
continue to call the shots, propelling them towards complete
control, or whether we as a collective, including all law
enforcement personnel, are going to unite and demand that the
destructive actions of said banks and corporations concede to
the people’s birthrights.

Do you remember when the “too-big-to-fail” banks bailed
themselves out (which was allowed by the U.S. government) and
forced the American people to bear the massive financial losses?
Does the law enforcement personnel reading this believe
these banks, corporations and the Federal
government really care about you and your
family’s well-being? To them, you are seen simply as a
pawn in their game.

I write this not to insult you, but rather to awaken you to the
reality of the situation and to inspire you to take action. If this
would upset you, remember, I am just the messenger of this sad but
true statement. So, are you going to continue arresting
living human beings for protecting their birthrights to clean water
and complete sovereignty over their own land?
Or are you
going to side with the people and team up with all other Sheriff’s
departments across the state (and other states that are affected)
as well as with the private security contractors and start forcing
the Feds to cease DAPL construction? Remember, as Sheriff’s,
you hold the power of what happens in the county. The Feds
do not.
It is time for everyone to unite.

As you may be picking up, this situation is not going away; nor
will it. The course of nature will always have it’s
Those standing to protect water from being polluted
with poisons are in alignment with nature’s course. With respect
and understanding for law enforcement’s difficult position in this
matter, the people have faith that you will join the movement for
freedom and sovereignty for all and respect for Earth’s most
precious and life-giving resource: water.

Special note*** Many Sheriffs and law enforcement personnel
are recommending to other personnel as well as water protectors to
look into the work of "" target="_blank">Judge Anna von
as well as a ""
target="_blank">book she recently published.
