Water is Life: Elders and children need protection. Heavily militarized law enforcement will raid Oceti Sakowin on Feb. 22, 2017.
"We are surrounded."
"In the history of colonization, they have always given us two options. Give up our land, or go to jail. Give up our rights, or go to jail."
"Now, it is give up our water, or go to jail."
"We are not criminals."
Listen to the women -- sisters, mothers, grandmothers, who face federal charges and prison time.
"We need help."
"We need everyone to come here and stand with us."

My dear friends in Standing Rock sent me this video, produced by women, featuring women, and asked me to share it with you. Militarized law enforcement have now surrounded their camp. In less than 48 hours, at 2 pm on THIS WEDNESDAY, law enforcement will raid the camp and arrest any water protectors who attempt to remain.
THIS IS NOT OK. This is their treaty land. This is their water at stake.
Water Protectors are asking media, supporters and those who can come to come NOW. Right now. Please pay attention and share their truths. Come if you can. This is the front line in the battle against #TrumpTyranny.
