Police beat Native American water protectors with batons and pepper spray them in unprovoked attack

STANDING ROCK, North Dakota -- The Morton County Sheriff and police carried out a brutal attack on Native Americans as they gathered for prayer today. Native Americans and supporters defending the water of the Missouri River from the Dakota Access Pipeline were beaten with batons by police, pepper sprayed and thrown to the ground.
More than 80 water protectors were arrested today during the unprovoked attack by police on peaceful water protectors. The police are defending a private pipeline.
Tipiwizin, a young mother at Standing Rock, called out for help, urging all those who came and camped at Standing Rock to return.
"The police, the military, armored vehicles, assault rifles, they are chasing our people, surrounded our people, chasing them into the river."
Watching the live stream today, she said, "I started crying, holding my baby daughter, because we come from people who were chased down, hunted down and gunned down by the military and the police. History is repeating itself. All those stories we were raised with, that we carry in our hearts, of our people, fleeing, running, racing, for our lives, just to live. We are the grandchildren and great grandchildren of those who survived the US Government federally mandated massacres on our people."

Sunday, Oct. 23, 2016: Breaking News from Water Protectors Road Barricade
http://bsnorrell.blogspot.com/2016/10/standing-rock-water-protectors-defend.html
In an unprecedented amount of lies in the media, the Morton County Sheriff has falsely accused the water protectors of being violent and being armed. The local media, revealing a long history of racism, have repeated these lies in the media.
In a steady stream of misinformation, the mainstream media reported that President Obama had halted the pipeline construction. Again, this is misinformation. DAPL, owned by Kelcy Warren, who has become the face of genocide for Native Americans, is racing to complete the construction.
The DAPL construction is near a burial place where water protectors were attacked with vicious dogs and pepper sprayed on Sept. 3.
The Morton County Sheriff is engaging in strip searches and false imprisonment of Native American men and women, who are jailed without credible charges. The owner of the land where the Camp of the Sacred Stones Camp is located, said her daughter was arrested without cause, while traveling in a car away from the area, strip searched and jailed naked.Dakotas, Lakotas and Nakotas here say this abuse is recreating the historical trauma, a result of their ancestors who were murdered and subjected to sexual violence by the Calvary and U.S. military.

The Right wing tell us that the policies put forward BT Bernie Sanders amount to Socialism which they say, by definition, will only end up being imposed by force. But here we see 'Free Enterprise' being maintained and imposed by a militarised police force that makes 'The Hunger Games' look like a vicarage tea party.

My great grandmother was part of the tribes that fled to Canada. For this to be starting all over again is insane and inhumane. I don't think there's any hope left for this country.

History ALWAYS repeat itself!!! SMH!

Do you ever Notice when aboriginals fight for the rights of the Land..the Government is always against them. Why is that No one backs them(us)up. This Fight is for Everyone. The Water is Everyone's Life. Why Not Help the People Fighting for the Human Right. ?!

Piece of shit cops collecting a paycheque

Well, the lines have been drawn once again and you can see what to further expect from our corrupt government "of the Owners, by the Owners, and for the Owners."

Well said. Our democracy is a plutocracy.

I am coming soon!! Change is coming!

My great grandmother was a wintercount keeper for the tribes on the trail of tears to Canada. I asked my cousin what she was counting. I thought maybe keeping count of supplies. No it was keeping count of the numerous natives that died fleeing to Canada.

I thought burials grounds/cemtaries were sacred - for anyone!!! What will happen when they come upon the bones of your ancestors??

Unknown said...

They want all people to do what they want when they want it. You hear nothing from any of the politicians or our current government or any TV coverage because do for the corporations.my spirit is with you.

Totally agree, are people that stupid to think that that battle solely belongs to indigenous alone. Does that mean that they believe the land belongs to them therefore it is their responsibility? Yeah right....

So sad… so very wrong…

What the fuck is wrong with everyone.I am so glad that someone has the balls to stand up for our rights.There must be something that even those of us that aren't in the states can do to show our support so they know you are not alone. The lives of everyone in the world are being trampled on by those greedy selfish people out there that don't even care about the future of their own grandchildren. Money will be worthless when all of our natural resources have been plundered for profit. They don't seem to understand that we will all die if they keep doing the same things over and over.If love and brotherhood don't become the norm for this world then we are doomed. So are we going to let a small group of fools and idiots kill off the rest of the planet because we are too afraid to fight back. Soon it will be too late to fight because there will be nothing left to fight for. How far do we let them go before we say that's enough. WE don't have to be violent about it either. Just don't go to work and help them to kill us. And that means you too police. They are just using you now to force their greedy ways upon us and you will starve with the rest of us when it's done. It's time for action people. This is our last chance to stand up for ourselves against tyranny and oppression and don't hide your head in the sand because that's exactly where we are right now and have been for many years.The native people of North America have known this oppression for many years and most of us have looked the other way. We can't do that anymore because if we don't join the fight now when they decide to come for us there will be no one left to stand up with us. Everything you have right now and are afraid to lose if you speak up is just an illusion.Wake up!!!!!!

THE GOVERNMENT IS STARTING A WAR WITH U. S. CITIZENS!!!!! WE CAN NOT SET BACK AND ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN!!!!!!!!!

It's also sadism. Powerlust. Not unlike rape.

if a mosque stood in their way, would they demolish it..???

Juan Holladay said...

Mosques in Iraq do get destroyed by occupying forces, for fun. Muslim families are taking part in this movement. This is about everyone coming together to defeat the Black Snake (also known as the pipeline).

This heinous act will be added to the volumes of injuries the original people have endured. May the sleeping populace awaken and accuse the perpetrators of these atrocities and may they be punished for these acts of violence. THE PEOPLE UNITED WILL NEVER BE DEFEATED

Susan Smo said...

How is this free enterprise? The government is backing this or it could not happen! The government is corrupt to the core!

Anonymous said...

its like the corrupt police want protestors to arm themselves and it will come to it if the govt does not grant them the right of freedom of speech and honor the agreements on land that has repeatedly stolen from them

RACHEL CITRINO said...

This is EXACTLY what the second amendment is all about. It's time they saw it in action. They don't want it to be a peaceful protest because they want any excuse to annihilate the original peoples. Water is life for all of us. Where is Obama in all of this? Where are any of them?

weeping willow said...

Officer Shane, protect the people. Yoi say your doing your job. Where are your ethics? This pipeline will effect you and yours eventually. Why would you want to be a product of your own demise? Will your descendants be proud of you for what your doing? You was sworn in. You promised to be ethical and to protect and serve. Thays protect and serve the public and the Constitution! I think your descendants will think of you as I think of you. What a dumbass. Hope you don't have descendants! Ethics; google it! Apparently they didn't teach that in the academy. Constitution of the U.S.A. Google that too. Dumbass. Wouldn't you rather go down in history as someone who made a stand!
