Oyate Media Network -- Ambulances pulling into the Main Camp to treat water protectors who took action at the front lines this evening, power to our people stop DAPL! 



ALERT! Water protectors on North Bridge at Oceti Sakowin under attack, being hit with tear gas, rubber bullets, water blasts. and concussion grenades. DAPL Security, Morton Co. Sheriff, National Guard. At least 22 reported injuries, some shot in face with rubber bullets. http://bsnorrell.blogspot.com/2016/11/standing-rock-water-protectors-under.html

"URGENT!
"ANYONE INVOLVED IN TONIGHT'S ACTION:
The Cannonball Community Center is open for your refuge. Please come to dry off, shower, get water, food, and anything else you need. Please come get dry before going back to camp!"

The physicians and tribal healers with the Standing Rock Medic and Healer Council call for the immediate cessation of use of water cannons on people who are outdoors in 28 degrees F ambient weather with no means of active rewarming in these conditions. As medical professionals, we are concerned for the real risk of loss of life due to severe hypothermia under these conditions. We call on the Morton County Sheriff's office to immediately stop the potentially lethal use of these confrontational methods against people peacefully assembled. We request media support, medical support and observers to the area immediately.
Unicorn Riot livestreamers posted tonight:
BREAKING: Police are tear gassing #NoDAPL water protectors, using the LRAD, stinger grenades, and firing less-lethal rounds into the crowd on Highway 1806 bridge in North Dakota. Police have formed a line with armored vehicles, concrete barriers, and razor wire. It is 27° and police have begun hosing down the unarmed crowd with a water cannon. Water protectors are using a semi truck in an attempt to remove burnt military vehicles which the police chained to concrete barriers weeks ago to keep the bridge blocked on 1806. Our media team is on the ground but currently unable to stream live.

Using Water cannons on non-violent peaceful people . . . In below freezing temp. ! ! ! Just has to be the most hateful law enforcement act that anyone could conceive of. If they did this to animals they would lose there jobs !!! These are elders, and young people . . . Humans to be honest, trying to protect water they need to survive. Who are these military style militia men who seem to take orders without even stopping to consider how these actions will play out ??? Brave Warriors you have won the hearts of all who care about life ! Your valor and courage will be long remembered and respected ! ! !

I thought America was a civilised country but not any more. I watched the live stream the water protectors were trying to clear the road. The tear gas was being fired was setting light to the grass and the protecterse were putting it out. This was clearly seen on a live stream. Some protectors were shot in the head with rubber bullets too. I am totally appalled by the force used against these people

How much more bs like this does
our people have to endure before the world steps up to help them?

What cathyrn amador says above plus

Have all institutional human rights protectors vanished? President Obama could have ensured the safety of the water protectors in much the same way that Lyndon Johnson protected the Little Rock Nine. He could have simply said no to ETP instead of letting this 'play out' for a few weeks. When he said that I had to wonder where were all the human rights groups that people give so generously to? ACLU, Amnesty International, Code Pink, Human Rights Watch, any number of environmental groups etc. All these groups were so quick to make tweets and ask for money following Trump's election (fair enough) but their priority should always have been to stand in the front line to protect people. Their absence is beginning to be noted.
