Watch interview in Democracy Now!

"People were shot in their faces. I saw a young woman's head get split open right in front of me." -- Native Attorney Tara Houska, after being shot with rubber bullets and jailed, speaking on Democracy Now! During the brutal arrests, Sheriffs deputies pushed Water Protectors faces down into the dirt. At least 20 Indigenous water protectors were arrested in Minnesota over the weekend during protests against the Enbridge Line 3 pipeline. "The level of brutality that was unleashed on us was very extreme," says lawyer Tara Houska @zhaabowekwe on Twitter.
