These are white people. No offense, but white people have never been trustworthy when it comes to Natives. I didn't trust the "more studies to be done", and I'm amazed at the number of Anglos who thought the government would actually keep its word.

In NC you don't have to have a weapon in hand. If an officer is outnumbered and there's a possibility that they can be overtaken then you're posing a threat. If you come within ten feet unarmed or if you have a SHOE in your hand it's considered a weapon.
Those officers don't know each individual's intentions.
Please keep in mind the local laws and stay safe!

I agree. White people and their ancestors hold a lot of blame and need to raise their consciousness about the destruction and harm that they have done as agents who were doing the dirty work. Water is life is raising awareness, grateful for all the teachings of indigenous people.

What is the reason the police or whatever they are are giving for arresting people? The only officers that have any authority at this site should be county police from the county you are in and State or Federal police. Looks like a bunch of city cops that have been bought and paid for are participating as well. Make sure they tell you what you are charged with...read you your rights and I wouldn't communicate with them at all once they have read you your rights. I thought this was all stopped temporarily by the President or somebody. I will share these posts. =[

When you say white people you put people into a group. You segregate people by race rather than by of character. I am white and I had nothing to do with anything that was done before my time. Your way of thinking is all wrong. That's like me saying every male should bow down and pay me back for the wrongs that a few men have done. That's not very smart. Now is it. I personally has nothing to do with what was done years ago.

teramiabullfrog said...

The law has become a game, played by dishonest, unethical, and criminally corrupt lawyers, and other equally corrupt "Officers of the Court" (including police, DA prosecutors, and judges) who support and even protect the dishonest actions by lawyers. Corrupt lawyer/politicians decide the course of action regarding causes like this, and what they can get away with, no matter if it violates peoples civil rights and human rights. Until our misnamed "legal system" is cleaned-up, inequities caused by these self-serving criminally corrupt Officers of the Court will continue with these type unethical practices. U.S. citizens have all become victims of corrupt politicians controlled by an inefficient Court system. Those entrusted with the punishment and prevention of crimes by other members of the Officers of the Court, are equally corrupt, dishonest, unethical, and inefficient - the tyranny of evil people in power is upon us.

Yes my skin is white in this lifetime but my ancestors were Mongolian female shamans.the government sent me to thier doctors they falsified my medical reports this is not just a native thing it's about evil greedy people who don't have a soul and won't be happy until the earth is completely raped and people become mindless zombies.

Bonnie Chavez, It is with a heavy heart that I see your post regarding BLM. You have no idea who those people are who are stealing and causing damage. DO NO BELIVE THE HYPE. BLM members are farmers and caretakers of our youth, homeless, veterans, elders ,and community. Do not assume to know who they are based on TV. We too have ceremonies and rituals that are performed for the water, mountains, air, and earth. We honor our ancestors and their traditions. Do not assume to know who they are. We too have supported this struggle. However, your heart does not seem to understand that. It seems as if your heart is selective in its humanity. They are killing our people every day, three per day exactly and we have the right, we have the responsibility to be angry about that,however, BLM DOES NOT DESTROY ANYTHING but misinformation.

It will not let me reply to comments, but will let me do this,.I feel for you all. When my children were small i told them don't let the world tell you something is impossible. My girls came home one day and said the school system had switched from paper products (paper plates, cups, bowls etc) to Styrofoam. My youngest even at about 6 or 7 realized how wrong this was for the land...they both knew how horrible it was to have our landfills full of styrene and wanted to do something about it. I told them they should...if they really wanted to make a difference. My daughter and a couple of others organized a peaceful sit in to protest the change from paper to Styrofoam and the news came and talked to them. I was so proud of them and their trying to make a dufference. The system did change back to paper, but before the year was up went back again to Styrofoam. I remember the look on my baby's face when she told me that. She cried. I dont know if she remembers or not but it broke my heart because it broke hers.

I feel for these people. I feel for their cause which should be ours. I feel fear for them and their safety. I can not find a format to sign my name with. But my name is Cindy Karges and i am proud to make this statement!

Ummm...just for the sake of clarity, there is an active court order issued on September 16th that says that DAPL cannot do any work in a 40 mile swat, 20 miles on each side of the river. The police should be arresting dapl if they are working in that area. The jurisdiction of the feds is only under the river and a narrow strip along the river.

Octo Rose said...

Just so everyone knows, from experience, the riot police surround protectors, then shout at you to leave but you can't they have you surrounded and when you try they advance . Then they arrest everyone. I think this is so their body cams make it look like you weren't complying with their orders so that when aired on Fox or other corporate media it looks like you weren't following orders

Octo Rose said...

Yah well I get it but there might be one or two that isn't hypnotized by TV.

Octo Rose said...

From experience the cops surround you order you to leave and then close in.. But you can't leave because they are blocking you! Then they have an excuse to arrest you. I think this is for their cameras so the sheeple watching corporate media see us 'refusing' to comply when we couldn't and think , well they should have left.

Hello Relatives

Courage! You're standing in the Dragons maw! They have all the money and all the guns, and I haven't seen much compassion from them for the last 1500 years. Most of the people in the Missouri watershed should be camped at Standing Rock. The pipeline is just north of a very deep continental rift which runs from Vancouver Island to the New Madrid fault in Tennessee. When the Cascadia subduction zone ruptures (and it's past due)that pipeline is within its reach. It doesn't make the "news"... well, they own the news, except for Brenda, and a few others ... and Obama just gave the net to the UN. If you make $22,000 a year you're better of than 3/4 of the rest of the world and that's just above welfare in the US of A. This is not an Indigenous struggle, it's a Human struggle. Life vs Extraction Industries. Many of the atrocities that occur here and abroad are unknown because of Media control. Is atomic energy a bad idea ... ask the Dine', and the Russians, and the Japanese. Ask the farmers around Hanford, or Three Mile Island. They also have control of our food and health systems. We'd best envision what autonomy looks like. I could go on, but I don't want to take up too much of your attention. Blessings to you, Brenda, for your commitment, and to all the Relatives at Standing Rock.

God Bless the water protectors! I will pray for your continued strength and continue to send support and post. You must continue your peaceful protests! "They" are trying to break you so they can document it. You must remind the younger generation to keep their posts "clean" and respectful. There are many people of ALL backgrounds who support you. This will never be about race. It is about greed. This must go mainstream! You are protecting the MO River and the land. Your work is SO important! God bless you all!

These law enforcement officers are essentially armed guards for a private business that's illegally actively stealing Indian land. By treaty this land does not belong to the United States or any of it's agents. This encroachment of sacred land is an act of war by any definition of terms. The Dakota Access Pipeline is illegal.
These armed thugs are Illegal.
Pray for the Indians who are peacefully trying to save their land from a vulture company and a corrupt American government that no longer honors it's Treaties.

Wilkru said...

Also,if I understand correctly, it's been reported that this land, land which was once native decreed by the gov't & then taken away illegally, now owned by ?, has been sold to the pipeline company, allowing the night of their own forces to come down on native people. Obama just signed a bill that will allow another line built going South thru Big Bend Texas. Major pressure is on. Divide & conquer. Come from many directions. Same old imperialist tactics.

Who commands and orders actions like these?
The President of the USA?

Is this actually legal? Isn't it a breach in the bill of rights, or in the rights of an US-American ciitzenship? Is there no way to fight or end this by law, or a referundum regarding this topic?
It's terrible what the government does to these people.

alytron said...

You want to actually be an ally to indigenous people in their struggles, stop being so sensitive and making it all about you.

White people HAVE NOT been trustworthy, for the entirety of the time we've been occupying their land. So you can get defensive about reality and feel personally attacked by accurate assessments of history, thus providing you're not actually a good ally who cares about indigenous struggles but only about your own fragile feelings, or you can work on being trustworthy and assisting in their work. That starts with actually listening to their voices, and not shutting them down when your fragile ego over identifies with white supremacy and your feelings get bruised.

Feel defensive. Examine that feeling. Think about why you're feeling it, think about context, think about why someone would feel the way they do. Then drop your defensiveness and do something useful.

Can't trust white corporate America. Since the beginning their words have been lies. The media won't cover it because they are white, can you imagine if every single native person showed up at the site, then all this would end.

The issue isn't white people, per se, we were raised into this system that from our point of view seems logical and fair and is anything but. Saying it's "white people" is true, period. But it only becomes an attack on you if you do nothing to change our culture. We nees to educate ourselves, try and listen even when we're being attacked. Afterall, we've force other ethnicities to do the same. The only way to solve these issues is for everyone, but especially us whute people, to make an honest effort to understand each other and stop jumping to conclusions. Those cops are white, so arw their bosses (mostly) and I'm willing to bet their corporate sponsors are also white, this is no coincidence. It being white people only becomes a racist point because white people are so quick to ensure they are treated equally (or better) no matter what, but fail to see that others aren't being treated as equal. It's like going to thanksgiving dinner, everyone gets food but you so you say "shouldn't I get food?" And your dad says "Yes, everyone should get food." But you never actually get food. Meanwhile if your dad didn't get food he make sure everyone have him some of theirs.

Come on people, this is just what they want us to do. To go after each other. Don't you think it is time ALL of us forgave each other for every thing that has wounded us and kept us apart? I think it is time we drew a line in the sand, forgave everyone for the most horrific to the tiniest offence, step over the line and said, "We are one people, one heart, one mind, one body." "This is a new day!" Together we will be unstoppable!

We, The People, are watching you, Government and Corrupt officials. If you bring any weapons, then there is intent of use, therefore... anything that might happen is on you, and will not be considered an accident or mistake ... Isn't that how it works, on the legal side, if you commit a robbery, even at a store, with an empty gun ? Think folks,... it is all of our waters, and We are made of Water.....and this is happening all over the Country, World... destruction and privatization , Greed.....

I just got a message from a friend that there is a warning about this link on Twitter...what is going on?

brendanorrell@gmail.com said...

Thanks for your comments. Twitter began blocking our links at Censored News last week. There is no reason for this. Twitter refuses to respond to questions as to why. It has a variety of automated responses. I've been posting our links on Twitter for years with no problem. So this is obviously part of the scheme to silence the voices from Standing Rock, which has been our focus recently at Censored News. Today is our 10th Anniversary at Censored News. It has been published for 10 years with no ads, grants or revenues. In the big scheme of things, Twitter doesn't matter that much. Thanks for reading Censored News, Brenda

This is insane. I'm sure as anyone would know in this day and age we are lucky to have clean water. To protect what God gave us is a right. Doesn't matter if your green or yellow or orange these people are living proof of their culture and they have the right to protect it. This is "gods creation" "Earth" "clean water" "clean air" "good food" and "good farming land"...many many prayers sent up and your way. I hope some light can be shed on this soon.

This is horrible and needs to be seen by the world.

I found a way around the block on twitter. I had this tiny URL created and it just allowed me to post this article to Twitter and Facebook after it being previously blocked.

Use this URL instead.... tinyurl.com/jtepm9l


Peace and prayers to all of you defending our water.

PLEASE READ!!! If you are at all upset about the situation with the Standing Rock Sioux in North Dakota, and the Governor calling the National Guard against peaceful protestors, OR
If you have any problem with a total lack of transparency in government: PLEASE call your Senator, and CALL GOV. DALYRIMPLE'S ODFFICE.
I just called and the woman said they have "no comment". I said we as the public want to have some transparency as to what is going on there, and she said he and his office are "not releasing any information about it". How convenient! (are you at all surprised that he is a smug white male Republican??).
The number to his office is 701-328-2200. PLEASE CALL.

I've left messages with Senator Dick Durbin & Congresswoman Cheri Bustos, for all the good that does! Durbin's intern in DC was quite testy, as if he was fed up with listening to the hundreds of fellow protesters calling and demanding the senator take a stand against the Black Snake! As for Bustos, her person in Saukenuk (alias Rock Island, IL) was far more reasonable... but I haven't forgotten how she voted FOR McCain & Flake's land grab from the Apache, and I let her know I knew, too!

alytron said...

You and I may not have committed those atrocious crimes, bit we directly benefit from them still to this day.

We also directly benefit from white supremacy.

We didn't ask to do so, and almost no one is suggesting we actually are personally responsible for, say, the trail of tears, but what we have to do is stop being so effing defensive and start owning this reality.

Instead of being upset that marginalized and oppressed groups do not trust the group you belong to and may feel unsafe with you as a member of the oppressing class, try focusing on dismantling that oppressive system. Use your white privilege for good, use it against white supremacy, put your defensive feelings aside and recognize that you're putting your hurt feelings above the actual oppression of people of colour.

Women tend to be more wary of men, more careful around men, less trusting of strange men, etc then they are around women because, well obviously because of reality and history and experience.

Basically, if you don't like being 'grouped' as white, do something about the actual causes of that and consider the actual reasons for it rather than blaming indigenous people for not catering to your feels. Sit with your defensiveness, consider where it's coming from. Then put it aside and look at what people are actually saying, because your 'bow down and pay me back' bs is a product of your imagination, fueled by fear and prejudice and emotion, not reality.

What was that our politicians were saying about citizens not needing high capacity guns? You know, the sort that these police officers were using to infringe on the citizens' rights of peaceful assembly. Something about "times are different now, the people would never need to fight for their liberties again"?

Anonymous said...

Likely the reason why things are being blocked is because of systems that automatically sense excessive traffic coming from a source. It helps to keep websites from being SPAMMED, hacked or under a "Denial-of-service attack". It's not a person thing, it's done by automated systems. Using other connections (such as posting in different places and sending links) will temporarily get around this until too many people do it. Strength and peace to those who are defending the water.

We need people to have diplomatic immunity but in all reality according to their treaties we do we are sovereign we need coordination compliance and accountability and lots and lots of lawyers!

Twitter is censoring links to this site. When trying to tweet them me & some other people are getting this message: "This request looks like it might be automated. To protect our users from spam and other malicious activity, we can't complete this action right now. Please try again later." I got this message on 2 different blog posts.

WORKAROUND for right now is to use Google URL shortener. I was able to tweet links to this site that way.

We WON'T be silenced!!

You will never win a war against a government, police force or military by saying what you think and standing strong in physical form.

Take some time and study some coding languages, learn how the internet actually works and how computers read each other, then use that knowledge to fight back.

*I'm not telling you to do any of this! I am simply expressing that in this day in age you can do more damage with knowledge and the internet than a stand in.
