Militarized Police Attack Standing Rock Treaty Camp: Rubber bullets, tear gas, arrests of elders

"Today we stood strong against this Nazi oil bought police force. They set off LRAD on us, hit us, maced us, arrested our grandmothers, uncles, they shot at our horse relatives, they set off concussion grenades, rubber bullets into the unarmed crowd. They desecrated sacred land and destroyed our homes on tribal land. We had snipers scoping me out with an assault rifle pointed at me and my relative. Our hearts were wounded but we will regroup and keep our minds in high vibrations because it is not over.
We will stop the pipeline." Cepoalli

Vic Camp, "We need help. We are surrounded. The government is moving us out." Camps said his Aunt Casey Camp, his mother and many relatives were arrested. "Hundreds of people have been arrested." "We need help my relatives."

OYATE MEDIA NETWORK: Percussion grenades used on large crowds. Ambulances are running full force here at Oceti Sakowin camp. Rubber bullets fired at protectors, elders pepper sprayed and arrested.

Ponca grandmother Casey Camp arrested. Police fire bean bags, pepper spray. Horse rider shot 4 times with rubber bullets. Elders arrested in ceremony. One person tasered in face. Cuny Dog has called all AIM Chapters to the front line. Just now, a herd of buffalo has come and cheers went out.


Water Protector: "I saw an 18 year old young man get shot while on a horse today--then his horse. I was standing 20 feet away. I saw young warriors on horse being chased on ATV's, being shot at. I saw our former chairman get arrested. I saw an Unci get maced right in the face. I saw the cops drag two men from the sweatlodge, feet from me, in their underwear and slammed face down into the ground and arrested. All these crimes were committed against our people on land guaranteed to our people under the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1851."

These last 2 buses were empty going south on Hwy 6. Everybody at the big camp go to the frontline Treaty camp now. Seven buses (3 with troops, the rest empty) escorted by 8 Highway Patrols and 2 deuce and a halfs just now confirmed going south on Hwy 6 about 4 miles south of Mandan at 9:35 am Central time. Stay in the ditch if you don't want to be arrested but go to support! They may be trying to surprise from the south access on 1806. Be alert it takes them 40 minutes to get there so by 10:30 am you will know.

By Robert --- "At 9:30 am Thurs. morning. There are private security roaming around and and an encampment of cops and military over the hill. I suppose they believe if we can't directly see them then we won't know they are there ha. Still, it's a beautiful day and relatively warm. Enjoy your day and keep pushing out the news about what's happening here."

Standing Rock Sioux Chairman Dave Archambault:

"Militarized law enforcement agencies moved in on water protectors with tanks and riot gear today. We continue to pray for peace. We call on the state of North Dakota to oversee the actions of local law enforcement to, first and foremost, ensure everyone’s safety. The Department of Justice must send overseers immediately to ensure the protection of First Amendment rights and the safety of thousands here at Standing Rock. DOJ can no longer ignore our requests. If harm comes to any who come here to stand in solidarity with us, it is on their watch. They must step in and hold the state of North Dakota and Morton County accountable for their acts of violence against innocent, prayerful people.
The Obama administration has asked DAPL to voluntarily halt construction until the review process has been completed, but DAPL has ignored these repeated requests. By deploying law enforcement to support DAPL construction, the State of North Dakota is collaborating with Energy Transfer Partners and escalating tensions.
We need our state and federal governments to bring justice and peace to our lands, not the force of armored vehicles.
We have repeatedly seen a disproportionate response from law enforcement to water protectors’ nonviolent exercise of their constitutional rights. Today we have witnessed people praying in peace, yet attacked with pepper spray, rubber bullets, sound and concussion cannons. We urge state and federal government agencies to give this tense situation their immediate and close attention.
We also call on the thousands of water protectors who stand in solidarity with us against DAPL to remain in peace and prayer. Any act of violence hurts our cause and is not welcome here. We invite all supporters to join us in prayer that, ultimately, the right decision—the moral decision—is made to protect our people, our sacred places, our land and our resources. We won't step down from this fight. As peoples of this earth, we all need water. This is about our water, our rights, and our dignity as human beings."

DAPL's Armed Security Charges into Camp with Weapon -- Arrested by BIA

Kyle Thompson
Today at Standing Rock during the 1851 Treaty Camp standoff, a hired DAPL security guard was spotted in the crowd with an automatic rifle in his vehicle. When he was spotted, he began to head towards camp. Water protectors made an effort to stop him on the road, in which he shot off onto the shoulder, and began speeding towards camp through the grass. The community feared for the women and childraen and began taking action. Water protectors began setting up a blockade at the bridge ahead, as 2 water protectors used their vehicles to crash into the securities truck, causing him to spin out on the riverbank. The security then exited his vehicle, cocked his AR-15, and began back stepping from protectors into the nearby river. A near half our stand off took place where water protectors pleaded and tried to defuse the situation of the man coming directly at their families. Eventually, BIA came to the scene, disarmed the man, and his was placed under arrest.

America, this is what is happening here. DAPL will do anything possible, include the threat of death and violence to get this pipeline through. DO NOT LET MAINSTREAM MEDIA LIE TO YOU. Protectors are facing the threat of death simply for protecting water and preserving history.


Morton County Sheriff's Department retracted their statement of the DAPL security rushing towards Standing Rock camp with the AR-15 "being treated for a gunshot wound to his hand" after photo evidence proved they were in fact a BUNCH OF LIARS.

The man is now in FBI custody after being turned over by BIA.

Morton County lies about weapon: It is a prayer stick

Here is the lady Morton County Sheriffs Department said pulled a .38 Caliber Revolver on law enforcement.
Well by the looks of it we'd say she's holding a prayer staff and if you think otherwise please comment below.
Any more lies Morton County?

CANNON BALL, North Dakota -- One of the Standing Rock medics described how police targeted medics, and violently arrested medics, while they were treating people during the violent police attack on Standing Rock water protectors on Thursday, Oct. 27, 2016 at Treaty Camp, directly on the path of Dakota Access Pipeline.
The medic could see silencers on police weapons.
"If they are here for peace, then why do their weapons have silencers on them?"
As the medics struggled to treat those who were victims of the police attack, they became victims and were violently arrested.
"The vehicle we were in had red crosses on it."
"They knew we were medics."
"They sprayed me head to toe."
"They pointed shotguns at my back while I was treating patients."

Video published on Oct 27, 2016
Update: Law enforcement are targeting medics. We had two medics arrested and nearly two more arrested.

Medics were at the frontline trying to move their car out as police advanced. Two medics were sitting on the trunk. Police approached and hit them both with batons, knocking them both to the ground. Water Protectors helped those medics before law enforcement could grab them.

In the meantime, police surrounded the CLEARLY LABELED car (big Red Cross in the hood as well as on all medic personnel) and grabbed the driver (one medic) while the car was in motion. The other medic was in front of the car and nearly hit by the car as the police took out the driver medic. This is a clear safety risk that the police caused. Both of those medics were arrested.

We are asking for more help here. Things are more escalated than before. We need you to stand with us, and we need your help financially as we have lost medical supplies and infrastructure in today's raid.

Please come volunteer with us:

This is the real thing folks, and we need your help and prayers. 

Stay in prayer and peace.
