"When they’re raping our mother earth, they are also raping our women.”

MANDAN, North Dakota -- The second group of trials from the Standing Rock action in commemoration of missing and murdered indigenous women concluded today. These were among the first of over 20 Water Protectors going to trial during the coming weeks from the November 15, 2016 action at a so-called “man camp” – temporary housing for oilfield workers that become havens for gendered violence and human trafficking of indigenous women and girls.
