The Sacramento Area Friends and Relatives of the Lakota Nation sponsored a peaceful and indigenous faith-based event protest from 3 pm to 5 pm at the federal building at 501 I Street in Sacramento in support of the Standing Rock Sioux.
Fifteen people attended the event to call attention to and support the Standing Rocky Sioux Tribe of North Dakota and all Native American and non-Native American allies who have been assaulted in their struggle to stop the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).
The protesters held colorful signs proclaiming, “Protect Our Water, “ “End Environmental Racism,” “No DAPL,” “Stand With Standing Rock,” “Native Rights Matter,” and “Love Water! Not Oil! No DAPL!” A number of people in vehicles passing by the event honked their horns in support of the protest.

Cannon Ball, Dakota del Norte, Estados Unidos- Uno de los médicos en la reservación Standing Rock describió como la policía atacaba selectivamente a los médicos y los arrestaba violentamente mientras ellos daban los primeros auxilios a pacientes durante un ataque violento de la policía contra los protectores del agua el jueves 27 de octubre de 2016 en un campamento dentro de las tierras protegidas por un tratado entre los indígenas y el gobierno federal. Esta área está en el paso de la construcción del oleoducto Dakota Access.
El personal médico vio que las armas de la policía tenían silenciadores.
“¿Si están aquí de manera pacífica, porque tienen silenciadores en sus armas?” Mientras los médicos batallaban por dar los primeros auxilios a los heridos y las víctimas de los ataques de los policías, ellos mismo se volvieron víctimas de ataques violentos y fueron arrestados también. “Los vehículos en los que estaban tenían el símbolo de la cruz roja,” “Ellos sabían que eramos médicos,” “Ellos me rociaron con gas pimienta de la cabeza a los pies,” “Me apuntaron con rifles en la espalda mientras daba tratamiento de emergencia a los pacientes.”

Actualizacion: La policía está atacando a los médicos. Dos médicos fueron arrestados y 200 civiles fueron arrestados.
Los médicos estaban al frente tratando de mover sus carros fuera del camino de los policías que estaban avanzando. Dos médicos estaban sentados en su camioneta. La policía se les acerco y los golpeo con sus macanas, dejándolos tirados en el piso. Los protectores del agua (manifestantes indígenas contra la petrolera) lograron levantarlos antes de que la policía se los llevara. Mientras tanto, la policía rodeo a un carro claramente identificado con un logotipo de la Cruz Roja y con personal médico identificado como tal. La policía se llevó a todo el personal médico incluido el conductor (otro médico) mientras el carro aún estaba en movimiento. Otro médico estaba frente al carro y casi fue arrollado por el carro que quedo en movimiento cuando la policía se llevó al conductor del vehículo repentinamente. Este fue sin duda un riesgo muy grande causado por la policía. Ambos médicos fueron arrestados. “Estamos pidiendo más ayuda aquí. Las cosas se han salido de control y la violencia ha incrementado. Necesitamos que nos apoyen y necesitamos ayuda financiera porque hemos perdido nuestro equipo medico en el desalojo de hoy”, -dijo un médico. Posteriormente también afirmaron lo siguiente:
“Por favor vengan a ayudarnos. Esta es nuestra pagina: www.medichealercouncil.com/volunteer
“Por favor envíenos fondos para ayudar a remplazar la infraestructura y equipo médico perdido y dos tiendas de campaña gigantes para atender pacientes. www.cash.me/$medichealercouncil
“Esto es real y necesitamos su ayuda y sus oraciones” “Oraciones y paz.”

MNN. OCT. 31, 2016. Many people around the world are to be commended for their great effort to do to the best of their ability, knowledge to adhere to what they understand is our responsibility. kaia’nere:kowa, the great peace, is the act of acknowledgement, respect and taking responsibility.treeofpeace
Everybody has to stand up and do something. The earth is our floor. The sky is our ceiling. We are the walls. Our friends and allies must also stand up. We all are connected and have a responsibility to each other, to our environment and future generations that are coming.
We stand with everyone who is taking action to protect and preserve what is tionhekwon,[that which sustains our existence, water, earth, land and all that is upon it, to keep us alive]. We all have to keep them in their purest form for all lives and the future generations. The four legged, wing ones, crawling creatures, and the rest of creation as per our original instructions when people first arrive on earth. We agreed to survive and co-exist with all creation as brothers and sisters on our mother. Nature is waiting for us all to wake up and remember our original instructions.
The Lakota at Standing Rock and their friends and allies are gathered and united to try to stop the destroyers of life, whose only concern is lining their pockets at any cost. They themselves do not dirty their own hands. They send politicians, military, courts, police and mercenaries to do their dirty work. It is time for the enforcers to stop abusing the gifts of nature, to begin to use their brain to distinguish the difference between right and wrong. 42e2a19afd51be2d2e65b4e5cf696697
The future of all the generations to come is at stake. Chief Seattle said, “Only when the last tree has died, when the last river been poisoned, and the last fish been caught, will we realize we cannot eat money”. Don’t wait til then because it will be too late.
Demon train.
Demon train.

The link has been identified between the CP train that runs through Kahnawake and the origins of the Bakken crude that comes from North and South Dakota. 85% of the “black metal serpent” that slithers across the land carrying this poison is a “train bomb”. Billions of gallons are being moved on these rails which go though many residential areas. A disaster could take out many families, like the explosion in Lac Megantic in July 2013, that levelled the town and killed so many people.
This video describes the bomb trains that are going through our communities.
This bomb does not have to happen. Together we can stop this man-made environmental disaster and deaths. The Kahnawake Mohawks, their friends and allies, have set up a solidarity camp for Standing Rock at the southern foot of the Mercier Bridge that spans the St. Lawrence River to Montreal. Friends and allies welcome.
Join at southern foot of Mercier Bridge to Montreal.
Join us at southern foot of Mercier Bridge to Montreal.
Johnny Cash sings about the bomb train: “Cause he was going down a grade making 90 miles-an-hour when his whistle broke into a scream. He was found in the wreck with his hand on the throttle, scalded to death by the steam.” [Wreck of the Old 97].
