New footage from today (11/2) in North Dakota:
This is from just a few hours ago; this struggle grows more monstrous by the day. Please send it to all of your friends in other nations! Please! Write your Senators and Congressmen tonight and ask them to ask Obama to put an end to this mayhem, which will end up shaming our nation and staining the last days of his presidency.
This is really sickening footage from North Dakota, but you need to watch it now and share it widely with your friends and groups, please.
Shame, shame....I truly feel shame for my nation of oppressors, and shame turns to anger. These protesters have no weapons, only their moral high ground, their prayers, and their long history, all together so reminiscent of what M.K. Gandhi had in India, 70 years ago, leading to the British leaving India.
With this footage, it is important above all to send it to friends and to editors and media in other nations. The outrage must become even more INTERNATIONAL than it already is....
Little or none of this is appearing on any mainstream media, just a video on the UN Rights of Indigenous Peoples which 3+ millions have watched.
What you will see in this video is what is really going on with the Police: the true front line. They are heavily armed, using pepper spray in aggressive ways that it is not supposed to be used, using tasers, stun guns, and plain old violence with clubs.
I hope millions internationally see how North Dakota and the corporations are treating the people whose only crime was that they were here first.
I don't know what the solution really is, other than Obama ordering a complete cessation of the pipeline construction. Bernie Sanders has made clear that he supports the native defenders and wants to put a stop to the Dakota Access Pipeline. He is only one Senator: ask yours to help soon!
This is turning from an outrage to a massive sense of shame for what our nation is becoming.
~~~~~UPDATE: NEW YORK CITY COUNCIL "STANDS UNITED" WITH STANDING ROCK PROTESTERS!
