So let me get this straight... they are on native soil owned land and they are brining police/par military and mercenaries so big business can frack? I am a non violent and peaceful person, however, there is a line one cannot cross... What the corporations are doing is an act of a war like people; the police are pawns and used as their instruments. They only understand violence and not compassion. It takes ultimate courage to remain steadfast in the face of such atrocities to peoples and the land and retain a peaceful way.
