Heavy Police Force Blocks Standing Rock Prayer Oct. 6, 2016


Armored police vehicles and riot police block Standing Rock water protectors today, Thursday, Oct. 6, 2016, as they move forward in a caravan to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline construction.
BULLIES
The photos and videos of this excessive force of police, showing up with armored vehicles in riot gear, when Standing Rock water protectors are unarmed and offering prayers, shows the world what most of the world already knew: Police in the U.S. have become bullies. Instead of serving the people, police in the U.S. serve politicians and corporations, and the most corrupt of them all -- the U.S. government. -- Censored News

International Rivers shares this inspiring message from the Mekong in Thailand

Solidarity is real. And it knows no boundaries
