Water Protector Tufawon Rafael Gonzalez, Dakota from Minneapolis, said today in Brussels, "Performed at the Anti Trump rally in Brussels, Belgium. We stood up against him and his bigotry. The organizers invited us to lead the march." 

Below: Rachel Heaton, Muckleshoot, and Waste Win Young, Dakota/Lakota from Standing Rock, call out "Mni Wiconi! Water is Life!" Rachel tells the crowd that they do not support Trump who is dismantling environmental protections and attacking sacred lands on Turtle Island. Trump is invested in these pipelines, Rachel tells the crowd. Urging divestment, she says, "These banks do not care about clean water." Rachel urges solidarity and involvement.
"This movement is connected to your struggle, it is connected to all struggles."
"We don't want Trump!"
Waste Win Young of Standing Rock, a descendant of Sitting Bull, calls out for the crowd to stand with them. "Mni Wiconi! Water is Life!"
"What happens to me, happens to you!"
"We do not want Trump!"
