Update on Standing Rock
This showed up on my FB feed.

Quote:"UPDATE FROM STANDING ROCK:
Worse than before square one: being arrested and demolished and persecuted in SILENCE: they've shut down live feeds (must be an illegal block) and are behaving in ways that keep the media from being able to cover what's happening.
They warned that they would come on the 22nd and instead came today so there would be no media coverage. Please please post so it can reach the people it should.
This makes me sick to post this: The raid has begun at Standing Rock (per Sunny Savage who is there). There is apparently a standoff happening right now. Backwater bridge has been opened, and there are large numbers of police, DAPL security, and National Guard circling the water protectors. Raids and mass arrest are imminent. Apparently, Trump is behind this. Live feeds are blocked. Media are not there, except for TYT. If you copy and paste, more people will see than if you click "share." Send love & support by reposting if you will.

I could copy/paste this onto a FB post, assuming I can remember how to FB, right?

Yes, but - I just found out this is a couple days old! Facepalm

Just say you posted it a couple day ago but it took a while to go through Big Grin

RE: Update on Standing Rock
The actions of the Police, and the Trump administration, in regards to how they've handled PEACEFUL protestors here seriously, sickens the hell out of me.
And the fact that they're blocking media coverage is extremely worrisome. I guarantee those police officers wont be wearing body cameras. It's a very dangerous situation and it's not even being reported on. It needs to be reported on. It needs to be filmed.

RE: Update on Standing Rock
It's fucked again for native Americans. There's not a single treaty with them that hasn't been broken.

I fully expected something like that to happen, so I didn't understand why everyone celebrated Obama's stay on construction. It was obvious that Dump and the Repubs wouldn't give half a shit over standing rock. Dump's even invested there, far as I know. Speaking of conflict of interests.
