Mohawk Nation News 'Watch out for 'Pipeline Party'

WATCH OUT FOR “PIPELINE PARTY”

mnnlogo1

Please post & distribute.
MNN. SEPT. 9, 2016. The “Pipeline Party” calling themselves the “Iroquois Caucus Inc.” are trying to impersonate the rotino’shonni:onwe, the Iroquois Confederacy. They are being sent to Standing Rock by the corporation of Canada.
Pipeline Dog Police.
Pipeline Dogs.
They have never supported the position of the kotihontia’kwenio, women, who filed a CEASE & DESIST ORDER on August 31, 2016, against the pipelines on rotino’shonni territory. Otsi did try to convince the caucus to support anti-pipeline positions to protect lands and waterways. Nevertheless he supports the niobium mine that lies beneath kanehsatake territory, which the coalition of onkwe’hon:weh, non-natives and farmers have been fighting for over 17 years.

One of the tehastikon’sota:kwen [two faced ones], after dining with pipeline executives on a yacht, said, “These demonstrations are useless. They’re going ahead anyway”.
No backup Plan B in the Montreal region exists should the pipeline under Ottawa and St. Lawrence waterways have a major spill. Millions will be without water. Oil tankers, oil train cars, railroads carrying heavy tarsands oil pose a ‘Lac Megantic” catastrophe! The whole town blew up, killed over 50 people and poisoned all surrounding rivers. About 300 tankers are going through Kahnawake daily.line9b
The Pipeline Party have been giving carefully worded press conferences seeming to object to DPL in Standing Rock. At home they suggest nothing to stop Energy East and Enbridge. Many fear these corporate chiefs are negotiating a deal. Their overlord, AFN Assembly of First Nations Inc., has not objected to pipelines nor provided alternative energy ideas. dem_rep_fraud
This is the time for all onkwe’hon:weh to say: “Give us proof that you legally acquired our land and that you talked to the people of the land to get our permission to do anything. The corporate band and tribal chiefs do not speak for the people of the kaia’nere:kowa, the great peace.
Buffy Sainte-Marie sings about the backroom deals being made by our pseudo corpo chiefs: “Hey, Baby I just got back from town, Where the bribes are paid. Honey, they turned my offer down. They say the deal’s already made. So now I gotta stand and watch, While it all comes down, And the buzzards and the hawks, And the judges and the mob circle round.”

OWE AKU: North Dakota Begins Campaign of Retribution - Local Agencies Instigate Violence and Violate their Constitution

WE ARE STILL HERE - THE STRUGGLE TO PROTECT SACRED WATER CANNOT END
Click the headline for the full article

It's critical to recognize this battle is not over.  This article from Brenda Norrell at Censored News reports on the retaliation and intimidation that continue by North Dakota state officials.  The unjust and illegal mistreatment of those peacefully and constitutionally assembled to defend Sacred Water on the legal territory of the Lakota Oyate as established by international treaty and inherent rights are violations of domestic, state, national and international human rights law.  

Please continue to call the numbers set forth below and demand action be taken to stop escalation of the violence by the state of North Dakota and the corporations controlling their politics.  
THINGS WE CAN ALL DO:

1.  DONATE - go to www.oweakuinternational.org and click on the "Donate" button.  All the money we collect goes directly to supplying the on-the-ground water protectors on the front line.  There are thousands that need your support.

Amazing independent media is getting out there thanks to many of our on the ground folks but Owe Aku wants to especially thank Brenda Norrell.  Donations to Censored News can be made at the link to her article above.  http://bsnorrell.blogspot.com/

2.  SHARE - everything you see and read on social media or in the press or expressions of your own feelings, share them with everyone and anyone you know.  We are a peaceful camp and our strongest defense is the awareness of the public.
3.  CALL the Governor's Office again: Tell them the job of State Police is to protect the Water Protectors, not to disappear when the people are assaulted with attack dogs and pepper spray.

4.  CALL the Morton County Sheriff's Office and tell them that they have a responsibility and an oath to uphold the law and protect peaceful Water Protectors, against aggressive mercenaries with weaponry.  The SHERIFF'S PHONE NUMBER:  701-667-3330

5.  CONTACT the Dallas company, Energy Transfer, building this pipeline, plenty of numbers to call and offices to sit it. These are the people paying the private security forces to attack Water Protectors. Ms. Granado, public relations for the Fat Taker corporation, deserves a little hassling I think in her capacity as protector of the bad guys.

Warrant issued for Amy Goodman: Standing Rock defends the sacred


North Dakota law enforcement and media hit bottom with pre-Civil Rights era attacks and charges

By Brenda Norrell

Sept. 10, 2016

CANNON BALL, North Dakota -- An arrest warrant has been issued for Democracy Now!  executive producer Amy Goodman, charging her with criminal trespass when Native Americans were attacked by vicious dogs defending burial places on Sept. 3, 2016.


The charges of Amy Goodman and Cody Hall for Sept. 3 -- when vicious dogs attacked the protectors -- state the "protesters" broke through the fence, "assaulted security guards," and entered private land. The charges against them were filed Sept. 8, 2016.

Amy Goodman said, "This is unacceptable violation of freedom of the press. I was doing my job by covering pipeline guards unleashing dogs and pepper spray on Native American protesters." Goodman is host and executive producer of Democracy Now!

On Sept. 6, a Lakota woman and man from the Amazon locked down to the Dakota Access pipeline bulldozers to prevent destruction of the burial places.

The charges state there was damage to equipment, painting of equipment, a tire was flattened, and dirt was placed in fuel lines, on Sept. 6. Cody Hall was identified addressing those present, according to the charges.

Cody Hall was arrested last night on the highway between Bismarck and the camp.

Amy Goodman is charged with criminal trespass, misdemeanor B. Cody Hall is charged with criminal trespass, misdemeanor A and B. The investigating officer is a special agent with the Bureau of Criminal Investigation for North Dakota.

The charges state that videos are being used as evidence against Goodman, in fact her own video, and against Hall.

Meanwhile, all those passing through the roadblock south of Mandan appear to be photographed and profiled by police.

Censored News readers have identified those responsible for the vicious attacks by dogs, from their vehicle license plates.  Frost Kennels in Ohio is identified by their vehicle plates and confirmed their involvement in Facebook posts.

The question remains: Will North Dakota file charges against the security guards with attack dogs? Although North Dakota officials told media that they could not identify the dog handlers, as shown below they are easy to identify by their license plates. They also confirmed their presence in public Facebook posts.

Vicious dogs and pepper spray were used on Native Americans and supporters defending a Native
American burial place on Sept. 3, 2016.

The red truck of Frost Kennels of Ohio -- shown in a public Facebook post -- is shown on Aug. 23. The vehicle is identified at the scene of the attack on Native Americans and their supporters as they defended a burial place being desecrated by Dakota Access bulldozers.
North Dakota officials said they have not been able to identify those responsible
for the dog attack. However, the license plates are clearly shown.
Frost Kennels of Ohio confirmed in Facebook posts that it is responsible.
