The comparison between Standing Rock and the 1965 “Bloody Sunday” when Alabama State Trooper’s unleashed tear gas and attack dogs on Black Voting Rights Activists marching from Selma to Montgomery.
Penny Hartsell ~ “Without water we can not exist. Water and culture are strongly interlinked. Water is a vital source of life, and culture greatly determines a person’s ‘way of life’. This includes the way people manage their water resources, having adapted themselves to the environment in which they live. For centuries sustainable water management has been daily practice in many cultures, resulting in a delicate balance between water resources and human society. Water has played a more or less prominent role in cultures, depending on the environmental conditions people had to face. Indigenous cultures are still renowned for their ingenious and sustainable water practices. Modern practices have often disturbed and overruled these traditional practices, with undesired consequences. However, in today’s societies we often see a revival of old traditions and a more natural and sustainable use of water. Finding the right mix between ‘old’ and ‘modern’ practices helps to find new sustainable solutions. Life came from the oceans, and the oceans have sustained life as we know it for over two billion years. Whether they continue to nurture us, and how long, depends on how responsibly humans can respond to the challenges of a threatened marine environment and an inescapably warming global climate. It is a privilege to be on this Earth. This is a unique and highly potent place of learning, beauty and revelation. Those that recognize that are intelligent human beings. Those who don’t, are imbalanced, egocentric, sleeping children. I don’t care how old they look, how well dressed they are, how many letters they may have after their names or how accomplished they think they are. The true sign of the most refined level of intelligence, is how one treats this planet, and the precious life upon it. That is the truth.”
RESIST THE DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE ~ THERE ARE ALTERNATIVES TO OIL AND GAS. THERE IS NO ALTERNATIVE TO WATER.
The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), owned by Houston, Texas based corporation called Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. which created the subsidary Dakota Access LLC. The DAPL, also known as the Bakken Pipeline, is proposed to transport 450,000 barrels of crude oil per day (which is fracked and highy volatile) from the Bakken fields of North Dakota to Patoka, Illinois. Dakota Access has failed to consult with tribes and conduct a full Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
In early August Canadian pipeline giant Enbridge announced that, along with Marathon Petroleum, it will make a significant investment in the Bakken Pipeline System, including the controversial Dakota Access pipeline. As part of their statement, Enbridge also noted that, “Upon successful closing of the transaction, EEP and Marathon Petroleum plan to terminate their transportation services and joint venture agreements for the Sandpiper Pipeline Project.”
We know that this influx of resources from Enbridge will only speed up the construction process. We know that any day now construction will begin and we will only have 48 hours notice to respond. Please fill out this form if you stand with standing stone camp and are able to risk arrest or play support roles in direct actions.

WE WILL NOT ALLOW THIS PIPELINE TO CROSS OUR LAND, WATER, AND SACRED SITES.
“The dangers imposed by the greed of big oil on the people who live along the Missouri river is astounding. When this proposed pipeline breaks, as the vast majority of pipelines do, over half of the drinking water in South Dakota will be affected… It must be stopped. The people of the four bands of Cheyenne River stand with our sister nation in this fight as we are calling on all the Oceti Sakowin or Seven Council Fires to do so with our allies, both native and non native in opposing this pipeline.” ~ Joye Braun (Cheyenne River)

A censored News reader said one of the mercenaries who attacked Native Americans and supporters has been identified as Landon Steele,. He is a U.S. veteran, paramilitary and is now employed by Torchlight USA LLC
ANIMALS 24-7 on September 7, 2016 received an anonymous tip that “Ashley Nicole Welch is a dispatcher for the Solon Police Department in Solon, OH. She finished up the Police Academy and is actively if not already has an offer to work for one of our police stations in the Ohio area.” Available public records indicate that an Ashley Welch, whose photo indicates that she is the Ashley Nicole Welch photographed at Standing Rock on September 3, 2016, was a Solon police dispatcher from mid-2012 until at least mid-2015, and in April 2013 was honored for helping to save a life on November 11, 2012, acting in her capacity as dispatcher.
As of 6:00 p.m. PST, however, ANIMALS 24-7 had not yet found anything associating Ashley Nicole Welch with the Solon police following a mention in Solon Civil Service Commission records of a “Memo dated August 10, 2015 from Chief [Christopher] Viland to Dispatcher Ashley Welch regarding Departmental Charges.”
The state of Ohio requires that anyone furnishing for hire guard dogs in connection with the protection of persons or property be licensed through the state and that failure to do so is a misdemeanor crime for first offense and a felony for any subsequent offenses. “The names Bob Frost, Frost Kennels, and Ashley Welch are not found in the public data base of those licensed in Ohio to furnish for hire guard dogs in connection with the protection of persons or property. “In order to travel to North Dakota to provide those services, said guard dogs would have to have been trained in Ohio, and the agreement for services as well as payment be processed in Ohio. This gives the state of Ohio jurisdiction in determining if Frost Kennels, Bob Frost, or Ashley Welch violated the law. A complaint will be filed with the Ohio Department of Public Safety alleging a violation of Ohio Revised Code, Chapter 4749,” Joyce promised.
Dogs were hauled to the Dakota Access location by a red truck with an Ohio plate: GTK 5721, clearly captured in photos from the scene and identified as identical to the one used by Frost Kennels, and depicted by the company on its own website, for hauling security dogs.
Frost Kennels is owning up to the vicious attacks by their dogs on non-violent unarmed peaceful Native American’s. HOWEVER Frost Kennels is printing fictitious and fraudulent Morton County Sheriff Dept. in their own defense.
Rudy TwoMoon ~ Creator, guide us and allow us the power to accept these prayers for peace. May we as the people, be strong enough to fight our instincts, bring healing back to ourselves for the future of all generations. May our actions be like those we protect. May we be a reflection of balance. We ask you this so we may bring peace, compassion and abundance through choice of our desire to being whole. We ask you to help us find the balance of choice so we may take responsibility for actions. We pray for those who wish to do us harm and they see our prayers are for their healing. May our enemies see we are not enemies, but living breathing souls who wish to stand shoulder to shoulder as sisters and brothers upon this great mother. These are my words, I have spoken.
Today I heard the ancestors. They are here giving power to the protectors.
Rudy TwoMoon ~ Let’s be cautious about celebrating this. On one hand it seems clear that our pressure is having an effect. Let’s keep it up.
But we have seen time and time again a consistent strategy from the State in these situations: string out the process, break it to us gradually to avoid a big confrontation, present the illusion of careful thoughtful review of the case, tempt us with promises of modest reforms…but then in the end make the same decision that serves money not people. So far this is just talk, not actions, and actions are all we should care about.
Stop the pipeline, and then we’ll celebrate.
We are not leaving until this is over.
UPDATE: The tribe immediately filed an “injunction pending appeal” in US District Court. The company filed a response opposing the appeal, and then the Army Corps filed a response also opposing the appeal. It is almost certain the Judge will not change his decision, this is just a formality. Next step is the tribe will appeal at the US Court of Appeals next week.
As we understand it, there is NOTHING legally binding in the DOJ’s joint statement. Again, not a victory yet.
James Emanuel “Jeb” Boasberg (born February 20, 1963) is a District Judge on the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, also serving as a Judge on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court; and former associate judge on the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. Boasberg received an A.B. from Yale University in 1985, where he was a member of Skull and Bones, and a Master of Studies the following year from Oxford University. Skull and Bones is exclusively limited to White Protestant males who in 1918, headed by Prescott Bush’s brother Jonathan Bush, Grandfather of President George H.W. Bush, along with five other officers’ dug up Geronimo’s body and placed it in the Skull and Bone’s Cult Museum.
The United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC, also called the FISA Court) is a U.S. federal court established and authorized under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (FISA) to oversee requests for surveillance warrants against foreign spies inside the United States by federal law inside the United States by federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies. Such requests are made most often by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Congress created FISA and its court as a result of the recommendations by the U.S. Senate’s Church Committee. Its powers have evolved and expanded to the point that it has been called “almost a parallel Supreme Court.”

Penny Hartsell ~ Water is the world’s most critical resource. It sustains life, and thus the global food chain. It powers industrial production, and thus the global economy. Freshwater is perhaps the most important natural resource for human survival. Did you know that it is also highly limited and currently under severe distress? Native traditional knowledge includes knowing a place. It covers knowledge of the environment, such as rain, snow, ice, weather resources, plants and animals, and the relationship between all these things. Traditional knowledge is partly a holistic way of looking at the world and partly looking at life with a deep spiritual respect for all things. For example, traditional knowledge explains in story form how and why water is important to all that share life on this planet. By “all” means plants, animals, clouds, sky, fish, birds, rocks, and water. Water in some Native communities is so important that it is considered sacred medicine. Many Native ceremonies begin and end with a prayer of water. Water is an important gift for all. If water were observed as sacred, then perhaps it will be taken care of and viewed in a different light than it is today by most people that live on Mother Earth. This planet’s water is a sacred gift that much too often is taken for granted. Respect and a deeper understanding of what the gift of water is really about needs to be of greater importance throughout society. Fortunately, many individuals, groups and businesses are responding to this water challenge and are working together to reduce the pressure on water resources, and encourage sustainable water stewardship. Whether water is a core ingredient or plays a supporting role in producing a final product, it is vital to the operation and growth of almost every business. So when water is scarce, not replenished at the same rate it is used, or otherwise inaccessible due to pollution or quality issues, the effects of local water scarcity have ramifications on a much larger scale. We know today that most of our problems with water are multidimensional and that neither science alone nor Native traditional knowledge alone can solve these problems. The solutions to our water problems involve not only scientific and technological solutions but also changing attitudes and actions so that people learn to regard our natural resources with respect. This way of knowing and teaching could help us change attitudes in regards to not only respect for water, but life respect on this planet. In learning about how to blend good science of water with traditional knowledge in a more balanced way, we are all learning about compassion – compassion for each other and compassion about how and why to use our knowledge. #MotherHemp
