Can you imagine praying at a sweatlodge… grabbed by some thugs and arrested… arrested for praying?
Can you imagine praying and having a weapon aimed at you?
Can you imagine standing for clean water, and getting shot at?
Can you imagine calling the whitehouse, and having them hang up on you?
Go to South Dakota… North Dakota… help the people… make a stand for justice… make a stand for God… make a stand for animals…
Developing: Was an 11- year old girl killed, or not, and this man sincerely believes it happened? Reading the comments on this video, they are saying the information is not truth…What rings truth to me, is that no child was killed, however we have a warrior brother, who is sending messages that are similar to what has been echoed throughout the ages… that some people think native people somehow hold back on progress, and that somehow we are ‘lesser than’, and therefore using force is a good thing.
Why do people want to hurt others, who have done nothing to them to deserve any ill treatment?
From Nimble Saint: This link confirms some of the statements made by this man - http://sacredstonecamp.org/blog/2016/10/28/police-from-5-states-escalate-violence-shoot-horses-to-clear-1851-treaty-camp - I did not see anything regarding a child being shot but it does speak to horses being shot, man tased in face and other people shot with bean bats. Looks like a lot of military action going on – please post other links of information if found.
Cannonball, ND - Over 300 police officers in riot gear, 8 ATVs, 5 armored vehicles, 2 helicopters, and numerous military-grade humvees showed up north of the newly formed frontline camp just east of Highway 1806. The 1851 Treaty Camp was set up this past Sunday directly in the path of the pipeline, on land recently purchased by DAPL. Today this camp, a reclamation of unceded Dakota territory affirmed as part of the Standing Rock Reservation in the Ft. Laramie Treaty of 1851, was violently cleared. Both blockades established this past weekend to enable that occupation were also cleared.
In addition to pepper spray and concussion grenades, shotguns were fired into the crowd with less lethal ammunition and a sound cannon was used (see images below). At least one person was tased and the barbed hook lodged in his face, just outside his eye. Another was hit in the face by a rubber bullet.”
…. A prayer circle of elders, including several women, was interrupted and all were arrested for standing peacefully on the public road. A tipi was erected in the road and was recklessly dismantled, despite promises from law enforcement that they would merely mark the tipi with a yellow ribbon and ask its owners to retrieve it. A group of water protectors was also dragged out of a ceremony in a sweat lodge erected in the path of the pipeline, wearing minimal clothing, thrown to the ground, and arrested.
