CANNON BALL, ND - At 2 pm CT on February 22, 2017, water protectors at the Oceti Sakowin camp were evicted by the Army Corps of Engineers. Despite efforts from camp leaders requesting more time to clean up the camp, the Army Corp remained firm with its plans to vacate the camp. The Army Corp claims jurisdiction of the land that the camp is located on even though the land is within the unceded Fort Laramie Treaty land and territories.
yes, the atrocities perpetrated on the indigenous peoples are a crime against humanity, war crimes..... historically and today's. the betrayal by the white man's government is something every american "white man" should be deeply ashamed of. the exploitation of the indigenous lands, the degradation, etc. are criminal. those of you who support the water protectors should be divesting any monies you have in ETP or their bankers and boycotting the businesses. send money to help with whatever aspect of the water protectors needs that you want to support. i send money to the water protectors' legal defense collective.
