Live Report from Dakota Access Pipeline Protest

By Robert Barsocchini.

20161102_12565320161102_10064220161102_112400A group of Christians came to the camp this morning to ally with the native water protectors. They said there were 524 of them, representing the 524 years since the Doctrine of Discovery. They then offered a copy of the doctrine to the native elders to burn, and marched to the barricades, which is unfolding now.

The peaceful activists, who are singing songs like ‘Wade in the Water’ and praying, currently far outnumber the present and visibly deployed pipeline militants.

    As tensions remain high from Thursday’s violent assault from law enforcement, those in camp remain dedicated to ensuring the Dakota Access Pipeline is exposed for its disregard for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s sacred and cultural sites.

  • Oct 31, 2016 Huge North Dakota Spill Proves #NoDAPL Activists Right for Fighting Pipeline

    This spill is part of the reason. Imagine, if you will, tens of thousands of gallons of oil pouring into the river that provides the drinking water for over 10 million people. Would you want to drink it? or swim in it? or eat anything from it?

  • These pictures showing Humvees in desert paint are worth a thousand words. Military equipment on the scene, against Native Americans…on Obama’s watch. And Leonard Peltier continues to rot in jail after 40 years…no pardon for him. Good work, Robert Barsocchini.

    What is really an eye opener for “people that have eyes that can see” is the Empire’s response to these protesters, fighting for the “life blood” of their community and the Occupy movement, with a “kill list” of its leaders, and the “thrown conviction” of the Bundy crowd in Oregon.
    This to me points that the Rulers of the USA are showing their hand in what they have planned for the the near future for our civil society.
    The fact that these assaults on grass roots populist movements are, and in Occupy’s case were, victims of the brutality the state can hammer out under “Hope and Change” President Obama show how utterly meaningless elections are in this country. There is one continuous ruling entity in the USA. The elections are just spectacles to give 99.9% of us the false sense of having a choice and a voice in our collective fates.
    Lets compare the “radical differences” between Bush and Obama.
    Eliminated the Government’s bargaining rights with Big Pharma.
    Check. Check.
    Prolonged the conflict in Iraq and the Occupation.
    Check, Check.
    Prolonged the conflict and occupation of Afghanistan.
    Check, Check.
    Voiced opposition against SA being charged with providing finical support for 9/11.
    Check, Check.
    Policy of ongoing “regime changes” throughout the Middle East that reflect SA regional goals.

    Cash given to Wall Street after massive fraud and theft.

    Refused to prosecute Wall Street and continue to provide cover for ongoing financial crimes.

    HRC’s claiming that she would be Obama’s third term was an error. What she should of stated was that the Empire will continue without interruption.
    And don’t expect anything different from Donald Trump if he should happen to land in the White House. You could argue that he might be even easier to manipulate by the elites as he is so far in over his head.
