Dakota Access Pipeline Company Attacks Native American Protesters.

From Democracy Now:

On September 3, the Dakota Access pipeline company attacked Native Americans with dogs and pepper spray as they protested against the $3.8 billion pipeline’s construction. If completed, the pipeline would carry about 500,000 barrels of crude per day from North Dakota’s Bakken oilfield to Illinois. The project has faced months of resistance from the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and members of nearly 100 more tribes from across the U.S. and Canada.

Democracy Now! was on the ground at Saturday’s action and brings you this report:

  1. Now let me get this straight…thugs who work for the earth-destroying pipeline, were illegally assaulting Native Americans who were peacefully protesting, by attacking them with vicious dogs and pepper spray. Corrupt law enforcement makes no arrests for these illegal assaults. Corrupt mainstream media refuses to even cover what is going on, for fear of waking up the sheeple of this country and causing more protests. Each player in the game must do whatever is necessary to earn his payoff money from “big oil”. And then we have the Native Americans who only want to protect Mother Earth and her resources. Well, nothing new here. The Native Americans have been cheated and swindled by the corrupt US “government” for hundreds of years. The next time I hear someone criticize the government of any foreign country for any reason, I will be more than happy to remind them that NO ONE can hold a candle to the corrupt individuals of our so-called “government”.

  2. It should be apparent to the American public that law agencies are promoting violence in hopes to justify shooting Native Americans. DAP is stooping to provoke a physical fight in complete disrespect to prayers and non violent behavior the protectors of water and land are displaying. The American public should be up in arms that a special interest group is allowed to place millions of citizens’ lives in jeopardy of no drinking water and the allowance of that special interest group to deny citizens the freedom of speech. W/ out the freedom of speech or right to assemble to pray, this country will in essence, be under martial law. Next step, the loss of the 2nd amendment rights and the disarming of all citizens. This Pray-In is crucial to every person in America who wishes to have freedom and clean drinking water.

  3. Today, 139 years ago, Sept 5, 1877, in Ft Robinson, Nebraska, a famous Oglala Lakota war chief making a lea for medical attention for his ill daughter, was murdered by the US cavalry by bayoneting an unarmed Tasunka Witko, (Crazy Horse) in the back. The United States promised medical care yet refused to provide it because special interest groups wanted the Black Hills for the gold that was found there. Today, Sept 5, 2016, another special interest group again, is manipulating the government to again, neutralize an unarmed group of native Americans who only want to pray and have safe water to drink. They are escalating the tensions by attempting to provoke violence by inducing attacks of pepper spray and trained dogs. All for black gold. I ask America, would you sell your children’s lives to a special interest group that wanted your water, air, and land?
