Special thanks to everyone who dashed into battle for protection of the water, the Missouri River and Cannon Ball River, as the Dakota Access Pipeline, its hired mercenaries, and the militarized police led by Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier, violated laws, civil rights and human rights to protect a private pipeline now threatening the water source of millions.
Thank you to the cooks, photographers, videographers, medics, healers, attorneys, wood choppers, drivers, horseback riders; those who cleaned; those who sang; those who reported; those who shared; those who cared; those who prayed; those who gave generously; and those who asked for nothing in return.
You are our heroes.

Mohawk Nation News 'Plain Speak'

PLAIN SPEAK

 Mohawk Nation News
Please post & distribute.
MNN. Dec. 27, 2016. A tyrant doesn’t suddenly take power. The people hand it over, out of fear and a desire for safety. At Standing Rock the army is attacking and trying to kill us” for our own safety”! FAKE NEWS IS PROPAGANDA!
Steps to fascism.
War is tyrannical power based on lies, to get the power they sought in the first place. False flag terrorism leads to setting up dictatorial empires.
The rulers create the crisis, ask for emergency powers, suspend civil liberties and do away with the true democratic process. Emergency powers outlive the emergency.
Civil disorder is anti-government terrorism and race wars, like white cops killing black people and state/corporate theft of resources or unexplained fears of certain races, other states and even outer space aliens. THREATENING PROTESTORS & PETITIONERS IS FASCISM!
Trump says in effect: “I’m a liar because I’m a politician. So what!”
The government that plans to seize power practices open in-your-face corruption.
The patriotic sounding leader conducts endless conflict. Artificial crises are generated from inside and outside for the government to respond to. Civilians are attacked. Internal critics are silenced.
Justice is almost non-existent. An oppressive police state is welcomed. Liberty is taken away little by little. Slavery is delivered unnoticed through thunderous applause.
The soldiers coming from the front become the jackboot oppressors. DECLARING A MINORITY AS AN INTERNAL ENEMY AND CALLING FOR MILITARIZED UNITY IS FASCISM! They murder their own people in civil disobedience scenarios. The state exonerates them from punishment. Concentration of power under one ruler is fascism.
Enemies worldwide are created. World war is called for. The same corporate interests for both sides create weapons and the rules of war. A super military is set up.
Only the persistent telling of the real and full truth can counter lies. The public must understand the emotional, psychological motives and financial interests of the corporation. They must know the facts about us.
State terrorism exploits the fears of the people. Temporary power with great promises are offered. Unlawful orders are passed for unlawful wars. Martial law – order, security and efficiency – are imposed. Former President Bush declared in effect, “If you aren’t with us, you’re a terrorist?”
The US and Canada are rogue states. The wars they serve are unlawful. The current standoff at Standing Rock is illegal.
The perpetrators must be arrested for terrorism and looting of our property and resources. The fraudulent tribal and band councils are the corporation’s foot soldiers at the grassroots. Floyd Red Crow Westerman sang about the fraud, “We are not your INDIAN anymore”:

With Thanks to Censored News 10 Million Readers of Standing Rock Water Protectors!


Standing Rock Water Protectors, Censored News 2016
By Brenda Norrell
Censored News

Today we begin our countdown into the New Year, with a look back, and thank you, to all of you who made Censored News a reality for the past decade. We did it together, with no advertising, grants, revenues or salaries!
We begin our celebration with the news that Censored News jumped from 5 million page views this year, to 15 million!
There were 10 million people reading about the water protectors of Standing Rock Camp on Censored News. Around the world -- thanks to our translators and co-publishers Alice Holemans in Belgium, and Christine Prat in France, translating into Dutch and French -- Censored News took the message of "Water is Life," and "No Surrender" around the world.
This would not have happened without the direct action of Red Warrior Camp, the Warriors who raced into battle in the Spirit of Crazy Horse, and it would not have happened without the prayers of tens of thousands of Water Protectors, Chiefs and Headsmen, and it would not have happened without the first call of LaDonna Tamakawastewin Allard, and Joye Braun, Lakota, who shared the urgent call.
It would not have happened without the Native youths, the youths who ran to Washington DC last summer, and the Crow Creek youth riders, who became an image of hope, the next generation for Horse Nation.
A special thank you to our team who went to Standing Rock in August and September, Govinda Dalton of Earthcycles and Michelle Cook, Dine', who set up Standing Rock Spirit Resistance Radio. Michelle is also founding member of the legal collective. Thank you to Rob Wilson Photography and all the photographers; Atsa E'sha Hoferer, Unicorn Riot and all the live streamers on the frontlines; and Tiokasin Ghosthorse, Brian M Frisina, Alvon Griffin and all the radio hosts around the world who shared the work of Standing Rock Spirit Resistance Radio!
Thanks to each of you who worked behind the scenes to share the news and fine tune the radio audios for listeners around the world.
Thank you for reading and supporting Censored News, now in its 11th year!
Best to each of you in the coming year!

Standing Rock -- DAPL Threatens Lives of Water Protectors in Prayer by Olivia Bias



Article and Photos by Olivia Bias
Censored News

Olivia Bias reports on the militarized police and Dakota Access Pipeline security attack on water protectors on Tuesday, Dec. 27, 2016.
The report said there were 15-20 with shields, 6-8 armored vehicles, a bunch of vans, a sound cannon and water cannons that rolled out again, this time around Turtle Island sacred site and Heyoka Camp.
"Nothing has changed. We are still here protecting ourselves against imperialism and ecocide," Olivia said.
"Earlier we went to the bridge and prayed, took a few pictures. Concrete barriers and razor wire are still up, vehicles were moved days ago, bridge inspection will take 'thirty days.' A gun was pulled on us by DAPL mercenaries."
DAPL mercenaries "stated that if we touched the barbed wire we would be shot. People tried speaking to them reasonably. When I told them the pollution from these oil spills invades my womb and breast milk for the next seven thousand generations they walked back to their cars."
"We will post video later. We went up on the bridge again later praying with the drum, got on our knees and prayed. Some people, unarmed as always, walked off into the field not far from the bridge and were shot with rubber bullets by cops."
"Unfortunately 4 scouting from Sacred Stone were arrested, but this was unrelated to our group."
"I didn't go on Turtle Island. Prayers have been laid there. I told the feds to get off the gravesites and sacred site."

American Indian Airwaves -- Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin Lead NO! DAPL Action Los Angeles




Watch videos Part I and Part II: NO DAPL Action Los Angeles



More on this video -- A virtual media blackout, again no surprise. Also, upon all of encroaching the Wells Fargo branch on 1600 Vine Street, Los Angeles, CA, Wells Fargo officials closed their doors and prohibited anyone from entering or existing. Inside the Wells Fargo branch, however, was Gloria Arellanes, a Tongva elder and community activist. Wells Fargo officials falsely imprisoned her - prohibited her from leaving. Subsequently, she called 911 and when the Los Angeles Police arrived, they instructed Wells Fargo to release her. You see Gloria Arellanes exiting the Wells Fargo branch about 17 minutes into the Part 1 of the video. Gloria continues speaking in the first section of Part 2 of the videos. Best to you and take care, Larry
