#Repost @argonautphoto with @repostapp・・・Happy #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth and Happy #Thanksgiving! There seem to be several wars raging at once in America right now, but one where you can help turn the tide is happening in North Dakota right now (#NODAPL). If you are not watching this conflict please start reading up (and please use multiple legitimate news sources). Peaceful Native protesters, and their allies are facing off with militarized police forces who appear to be relishing the chance to use their new gear (fresh from the front lines of our wars in the Middle East) to inflict harm as these #WaterProtectors attempt to convey concerns over water safety and the damaging of sacred sites. This is not one tribe trying to protect THEIR water. They are trying to protect OUR water. They are up against mine-resistant military tactical vehicles (#MRAPs), concussion grenades, razor wire, tear gas, rubber bullets, and water cannons in sub-freezing conditions. A letter from #AmnestyInternational this week stated: “The U.S. government is obligated under international law to respect, protect, and fulfill the human rights of indigenous people, including the rights to freedom of expression and assembly. It is the legitimate right of people to peacefully express their opinion. Public assemblies should not be considered as the ‘enemy.’ The command hierarchy must convey a clear message to law enforcement officials that their task is to facilitate and not to restrict a peaceful public assembly. “ If you would like an explanation for why the policing of peaceful protests near the Dakota Access pipeline construction looks like the front lines of Iraq and Afghanistan then please flood the following phone lines with as many calls as humanly possible, and start with Morton County Sheriff #KyleKirchmeier Phone: 701-667-3330Email: kyle.kirchmeier@mortonnd.orgMorton County Commissioners Chairman Cody SchulzEmail: cody_schulz@hotmail.com Phone: 701-391-9698North Dakota Sen.
