Lakota warriors and allies stand in unison against police tonight, Thursday night, Feb. 28, 2013. Oglala President Bryan Brewer, still in a wheelchair after his accident, was present to support the action against the liquor profiteers at the border of Lakota land.
President Brewer vowed to shut down liquor stores in the bordertown. Read his statement:
An Idle No More style Round Dance was held during the gathering to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Wounded Knee, "Liberation Day!"
As usual, police arrived in force to protect the abusive business practices of the bar owners in White Clay, Nebraska, at the border of Pine Ridge, South Dakota.

Jerry Feaster said, "Remember these cops protect the right of the bar owners to sell alcohol not to protect the members of the community."

"This is Sheridan County Sheriff Terry Robbins (on left.) Sheriff Robbins was accused of being drunk by the Lakota warriors and relatives while performing a round dance on the north side of White Clay, Nebraska. Sheriff Robbins was on duty, operating a state vehicle, and carrying a firearm. Robbins was given a breathalyzer by his own state trooper in front of all community members present at the direct action protest. Robbins passed the breath test, but in my opinion, it was botched."
Protesters said videos posted reveal Sheriff Robbins was slurring his speech.
