    national geographic

    Quote As currently proposed, the Dakota Access pipeline would move oil out of northwestern North Dakota, through a 30-inch pipe, and along a 1,200-mile path that cuts through both Dakotas, Iowa, and a stretch of Illinois before meeting another pipeline in the town of Patoka. It would carry nearly half a million barrels of domestic sweet crude oil every day, and the project’s builder, Energy Transfer Partners, says it will bring back money.

    The Texas-based company says the pipeline will create up to 12,000 jobs (the Army Corps of Engineers approved the project and agreed) and generate over $120 million in property and income taxes every year. And they say it’ll be safer than moving the oil by train, the current option.

    The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe tells another story. The tribe, made up of Hunkpapa Lakota and Yanktonai Dakota, lives in the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, which covers parts of North and South Dakota. Members have been protesting the pipeline since April. They’re worried it might leak and contaminate wells along the pipe’s path, threatening their water supply.

    Faces 45 years for journalism

    Quote In the same week that activist and celebrity Shailene Woodley was arrested while protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline, a documentary producer was arrested at yet another pipeline protest and charged with conspiracy.

    Deia Schlosberg, producer of the 2016 film “How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change,” was following the actions of activists in North Dakota who were protesting against a pipeline. Both activists and documentarian Schlosberg were arrested by police and charged with conspiracy to commit theft of property and services.

    Protesters were attempting to take matters into their own hands and planned to physically stop the flow of crude oil through valve stations at five locations on Tuesday. Schlosberg attended the event in order to document the protest – something a journalist often does.

    The filmmaker continues to be held in jail and all three arrested appeared in court on Thursday for a bond hearing. None were bailed and they all remain in police custody.

    According to fellow filmmaker Josh Fox, Scholsberg has been charged with three felony charges, carrying some serious penalties.

    “Now here is the really bad news and this is why we need you to act right now. This afternoon she was escorted to the courthouse where she was charged with 3 Class A and C felony charges that carry 45 years maximum sentences combines. She has been charged with 2 Class A Felony Charges and 1 Class C Felony Charge; Conspiracy to theft of property, Conspiracy to theft of services, Conspiracy to tampering with or damaging a public service.”

    While the activists who attempted to commit crimes are facing justice (regardless of the morality of their cause), charging the journalist with the same crime is insanity.

    For simply covering reality, Schlosberg faces a maximum 45 years in prison. While we hope that the judge is reasonable enough to clear the woman of all charges, the fact that a journalist could face conspiracy charges and 45 years in prison is a daunting invasion on the freedom of speech.

    It is disturbing to know that journalists are being arrested for merely being present and covering important issues like these protests. Schosberg should be freed immediately and cleared of all charges.

    Emails Show North Dakota Budget Bureaucracy Behind #NoDAPL Policing

    October 14,



    Bismarck, ND – Emails acquired by Unicorn Riot via public records request to the North Dakota Office of Budget and Management allow a small glimpse into the behind-the-scenes working of the state government around the date of a permitted protest rally against the Dakota Access Pipeline held on the capitol grounds on Saturday, September 9, 2016.

    The rally was held the same day that a federal judge ruled against the injunction the Standing Rock Sioux tribe was seeking against DAPL construction. After the judge struck down the injunction, the federal government stepped in and asked Energy Transfer Partners to voluntarily cease construction within 20 miles of Lake Oahe.

    While the rally took place without incident in accordance with its permit, state officials at the capitol grounds seemed to anticipate a more dire series of events.
    An email sent out to state employees working at the capitol that day promised “adequate” law enforcement protection from the potential threat of water protectors storming government offices:

    “A short time ago, I (along with other agency heads) was briefed about this afternoon’s demonstration that is being allowed on the lower part of the mall. Based on the briefing, I can assure you that there is a security plan in place with adequate resources and personnel to protect the capitol and those in it. That is, in the event any of the participants in the rally attempt to rush the capitol or damage any of the property. If that should happen, the capitol will be locked down and you will receive further instructions.” – North Dakota Secretary of State Al Jaeger



    Replying to an email about the planned protest, Allison Volk, a Training and Development Administrator employed by the state of North Dakota, wrote, “Thanks for supporting our team during this semi-scary event. I feel a lot may have anxiety over this.”



    The emails also reveal that the North Dakota HIghway Patrol used the Haugland Room at the state capitol grounds to stage state troopers, who were present throughout the rally in riot gear.

    finally a little mainstream action

    Quote The largest gathering of indigenous nations in modern American history has set up camp on land belonging to the Army Corps of Engineers at the confluence of the Cannonball and Missouri rivers in North Dakota. Tents and teepees, now home to whole families, stretch the plain.

    They have come by the hundreds to protest construction of the 1,172-mile Dakota Access oil pipeline, which would run within a half-mile of the Standing Rock Sioux reservation and cross beneath the Missouri River. Opponents say the pipeline will adversely impact drinking water and disturb sacred tribal sites.

    Supporters say it would enable crude oil from North Dakota to reach major refineries while reducing more dangerous rail and truck transport.

    Reporter Sasha von Oldershausen spent three days with the protesters to see how they are living and to learn why they have answered the call of the Standing Rock Sioux.

    NEAR CANNON BALL, N.D. — Winter is coming to the plains. At all times of the day, when there is lumber to chop, men throw their weight into axes and cut firewood for the frigid days ahead.

    One tribe from Wisconsin recently visited the camp with a logging truck filled with lumber that 20 men unloaded by hand. The camp relies on these donations for its survival, and wood is scarce.

    "We need to conserve our wood," Everett Iron Eyes, a Standing Rock Lakota and camp organizer, said to people packed beneath the large, brown canopy of tent at the top of a hill. Just below, hundreds have been camping for months in protest of the Dakota Access pipeline.

    "Our people survived hundreds of years in the snow," he said, the heavy canvas walls snapping like sails from the blustery wind. Inside, all was still as people sat cross-legged or stood along the fringes. Elders occupied the few available metal fold-out chairs. Everyone was listening.

    Where does the North Dakota anti-pipeline camp go from here?



    OCETI SAKOWIN CAMP, N.D. — North Dakota’s unforgiving winter is looming.
    Construction on the four-state Dakota Access Pipeline, including an 18-county slice through Iowa, is more than half completed.
    And tensions between law enforcement and protesters have reached new heights

    Here, where Army tents, teepees and motor homes blanket the rolling prairie in a protest of the pipeline, one question lingers: What's next?

    The Standing Rock Sioux tribe started an occupation of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers land that birthed one of the largest gatherings of native people in modern history. The site has become not just a protest, but a place of spiritual pilgrimage.

    Now, some tribal leaders want the camp to move onto the nearby reservation, where campers would have access to modern utilities and health care.
    But a move would be complicated. Thousands of native and white activists from across the country have made their home here, some arriving with little more than gas money.

    There is no commerce, yet a basic infrastructure exists: Makeshift roads of worn-down grass snake through the camp, which is dotted by rows of portable toilets and huge plastic water bins. Medical tents offer both Western medical treatment and traditional forms of healing.
    And people have already begun collecting blankets and building hardened structures for the winter.

    “The camp has a life of its own,” said Standing Rock Sioux chairman Dave Archambault II.

    NEW INTERACTIVE VIDEO EXPERIENCE:Tour the camp in 360-degree video

    Life in the camp

    In the heart of the camp, a collection of tents and canopies connects a sprawling kitchen complex, where women on folding chairs peel potatoes and shuck corn.
    Melaine Stoneman stirs a bubbling kettle of buffalo stew behind the serving line. She’s helped lead the volunteer kitchen crew for nearly three months.
    Some people cook at their campsites, but Stoneman says most eat here, in meal services that bump into each other. At times, the kitchen served breakfast, lunch and dinner to more than 7,000 people, but the number is about half that now.


    Campers line up for lunch at the Oceti Sakowin Camp near the Standing Rock Reservation Friday, Sept. 30, 2016, near Cannon Ball, North Dakota.  (Photo: Rodney White/The Register)

    “They start at 4 a.m. with breakfast,” said Stoneman, who lives on South Dakota’s Rosebud Indian Reservation. “We’re probably out of here about 11:30 p.m.”

    Like the next-door thrift store of donated coats, socks and shoes, the kitchen runs on donations. Crudely erected shelves are well stocked with staples like rice and bulk cans of green beans and corn. More sparse, Stoneman said, is fresh fruit, milk, eggs and meat.
    Nearby, volunteers run a makeshift school in a series of tents and teepees.
    Jill Watrous, of Des Moines, volunteers alongside teachers who left jobs and graduate school to be here.

    A member of Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement, Watrous, 59, had planned to volunteer in the Peace Corps after retiring from teaching. But she set aside those plans when her daughter became pregnant.

    “This is sort of my Peace Corps,” she said.


    Jill Watrous of Des Moines, Iowa, greets representatives of the Havasupai Tribe from the Havasupai Indian Reservation in the Grand Canyon enter the Oceti Sakowin Camp near Standing Rock Reservation Thursday Sept. 29, 2016, near Cannon Ball, North Dakota.

    Last week, North Dakota officials said the school is operating without a license and urged campers to enroll their children in nearby school districts. The camp school teaches standard subjects like math and reading, along with environmental studies, compost lessons and traditional Lakota language.
    In many ways it's an ordinary school, Watrous said. Yet this is unlike anything she's ever experienced.
    She sleeps on a pile of blankets, and like other school volunteers in her military tent, awakens to the sound of the public address system each dawn.

    At the school, new children can arrive in a van in the middle of the day.
    Aside from a break to visit family in Iowa and Canada, Watrous said she hopes to stay at the camp through the winter.
    "I wish I could say that the Bakken pipeline stuff would all be over and we could leave when the winter gets horrendous," she said. "But I don’t think it's going to be over."

    'We have to deal with the mayhem.'

    While the camp sorts out its future, local law enforcement are growing increasingly frustrated with the pipeline opponents.
    Days at the camp are mainly filled with fellowship, chores and prayerful ceremonies. But various factions venture out for shows of defiance. As of Oct. 10, 123 people had been arrested for venturing onto pipeline work sites.

    In late September, a group dressed in orange jumpsuits filed in for bond hearings at the Morton County Courthouse in Mandan, about 40 miles north of the camp.
    Allen Koppy, the state’s attorney, described the protesters as a “mob.” He said their actions were escalating and asked the judge to send a statement by setting bonds higher than the $500 he had issued for dozens of people before them.

    “At what point, your honor, do we reach the tipping point?” Koppy said. “… At some point, your honor, we have to deal with the mayhem.”
    In early October hundreds of demonstrators convoyed to a work site more than 30 miles from the camp. Videos posted online showed them holding signs and chanting. Police stood still in riot gear, as a woman on a megaphone urged the demonstrators to control their emotions.

    “I know you are angry. I know you are sad. And I know you are mad,” she said.
    Many of the protesters were ushered away without incident, but police arrested 27 at the scene, including actress Shailene Woodley.

    Like others before them, the demonstrators were charged with criminal trespassing. But officers also charged them with engaging in a riot (a gathering of five or more may be considered a riot under North Dakota law).

    “When you have that many people engaged in that kind of behavior, inciting others to break the law, cheering others on as they do break the law, refusing to leave when they’re asked to leave, that’s not a protest,” Cass County Sheriff Paul Laney said at a press conference afterward.
    Laney hails from Fargo but is acting as operations chief at the protest site. Police from many jurisdictions are aiding the local, state and federal officers on scene.

    “These are people with an ideology and an agenda that’s not from here, and they’re bringing it here,” he said of those arrested. “What started as a North Dakota issue with North Dakota people and the Standing Rock tribe has excelled well past that."

    Protesters are undeterred.

    On Tuesday, eight environmental activists were arrested after attempting to shut down other pipelines in a show of solidarity.
    And at the North Dakota camp, Angela Bibens, who runs a free legal clinic in a green Army tent, said the movement wouldn't end anytime soon. Bibens, who said she is of Sioux heritage but not enrolled in a tribe, is worried about the escalating tone from law enforcement.
    "I'm confident that we’ll be here until it’s stopped. But I’ll tell you, it’s scary," Bibens told the Register in late September. "When they point military-grade weapons at our grandmothers who are carrying sage and cedar, it’s terrifying."

    'This area is going to be a historic site'

    Even with a possible move in its future, Archambault sees a permanent role for this land.
    The territory now occupied by the camp once belonged to the Sioux, before Congress began ceding back treaty lands. The chairman said he has asked the Corps about deeding the land to the tribe, so it can be a place “all nations can gather and talk about all our issues.”

    “I really love this place where we’re at, and I’m going to try to keep this long-term for years to come,” Archambault said. “This area is going to be a historic site."
    For months, tribe members have railed against the underground pipeline, which they believe will threaten the reservation’s drinking water in its crossing of the Missouri River. The original route called for it to cross the Missouri River near Bismarck, but concerns over the capital city's water supply saw it rerouted closer to the reservation.
    Archambault recently told campers that the camp was only one leg of the resistance: The tribe also filed a federal lawsuit, took its story to the United Nations and has been in talks with members of Congress.

    “There’s different fronts, and I can’t tell you which one is going to work," he said. "But we’re trying all of them."
    While fervent protesters have pledged to stay until the pipeline is defeated, the chairman said he “can’t guarantee anybody that this pipeline’s going to be stopped.”

    The tribe has spent thousands of dollars on basic necessities like waste removal to keep the camp livable. And it will likely need to till and reseed the campsite, where pasture has been bulldozed by people, horses and cars, said Karol Two Bears, Standing Rock’s tax director, who ranches cattle nearby.
    She finds it hard to swallow the costs of maintaining the camp. People talk of building permanent shelters and bathrooms, yet the reservation has hundreds of names on a housing wait list.

    “At some point," she said, "we need to come back to taking care of our tribe.”

    Two Bears said the standoff between protesters and the pipeline company has not been popular with North Dakotans, particularly in the state capital of Bismarck, where people think the controversy has gone on too long.

    But she doesn’t think she has to worry much longer: Winter will thin out the protests on its own.
    On a recent evening in the camp, she noticed a camper hovering near a fire. The man complained of the cold. The temperature was in the 40s or 50s, she said.

    “I was like: 'Buddy, it gets 40 below wind chill here, and it will stay like that for four or five days,'” she said. “There’s some people in for a shock.”

    About the pipeline

    The 1,172-mile Dakota Access pipeline will not cross the Standing Rock Sioux reservation, whose boundaries extend into North Dakota and South Dakota. But tribal leaders worry that burying the pipeline under the Missouri River will threaten the reservation’s water supply for generations to come.  
    In a September memo to employees, Kelcy Warren, CEO of pipeline parent Energy Transfer Partners, said concerns about the local water supply were “unfounded.” He said the pipeline was being carefully inspected and will be at least 90 feet below Lake Oahe. He also noted that electric transmission lines and a natural gas pipeline already run through the contested area.

    The pipeline will run diagonally for 343 miles through 18 Iowa counties while transporting up to 570,000 barrels of oil daily from the Bakken and Three Forks oil production areas of North Dakota.

    It will end at a distribution hub at Patoka, Ill., where the oil could be transferred to railroad tank cars or linked to another pipeline for shipment to refineries in the Gulf Coast.
    An Energy Transfer spokeswoman said work is nearly 70 percent complete on the four-state project.

    And nobody hears about this stuff. It's so obvious that we are living in a police state. The police, who are supposed to be protecting the rights of the citizens, are instead paid shills for big money corporations.
    I am enlightened, ............ Oh wait. That's just the police shining their spotlights on me.

    Quote Police officers arrested one person as a protest winds down outside the Morton County Courthouse after a judge dismissed a complaint against Democracy Now journalist Amy Goodman, who reported on a clash between pipeline protesters and private security in September.

    Police ordered about 200 people to stay out of the road. Officers with batons were lined up outside the courthouse. As protesters left, some thanked officers.

    Goodman's attorney, Tom Dickson told the crowd Judge John Grinsteiner did not find probable cause in a riot charge against Goodman. The case was dismissed.

    Quote BREAKING #NoDAPL #MississippiStand: We just received an eye witness confirmation of the presence of UK security agency G4S in Iowa. Known for countless human rights violations while working for oil companies in the Middle East and Latin America, G4S presence shows that Mississippi Stand is being affective at stopping work on the Dakota Access Pipeline. They are working in conjunction with Precision Pipeline here in Iowa in response to peaceful water protectors. Lets hope they don't choose to use attack dogs on Mississippi Stand folks like they did to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
    We suspect the man pictured here may work for GS4. Please help us identift this man.

    Riot charges dropped against journalist, Amy Goodman, who covered #NoDAPL protest

    Published on Oct 17, 2016

    A “Democracy Now” journalist has been charged with rioting after reporting on a protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline, with a prosecutor claiming she was "basically" acting like a protester. The case against Amy Goodman was later dismissed, her lawyer said. RT America's Manuel Rapalo has the story.

    Out-of-control North Dakota prosecutors still pursuing reporter Amy Goodman, even after judge dismisses riot charge
    October 18, 2016


    Quote [Goodman] and her lawyers declared victory on Monday, but Ladd Erickson, a state prosecutor who is assisting the Morton County state’s attorney’s office in the case, said other charges were possible.

    “I believe they want to keep the investigation open and see if there is any evidence in the unedited and unpublished videos that we could better detail in an affidavit for the judge,” he said via email. “The Democracy Now video that many people have seen doesn’t have much evidence value in it.”

    http://m.kdlt.com/news/ACLU-Investig...tests/42124876 ACLU Investigating Sheriff, Highway Patrol Actions at DAPL Protests

    Quote NORTH DAKOTA -
    The American Civil Liberties Union of North Dakota has filed open records requests related to the Dakota Access Pipeline protests.

    The ACLU is seeking information about the policing practices and possible use of surveillance technology by the Morton County Sheriff's Department and North Dakota Highway Patrol at the protest site.

    The ACLU says the open records requests were prompted after several reports were made to them of unwarranted stops by police, the use of highway roadblocks and checkpoints, and militarized equipment by law enforcement in response to pipeline protests.

    Judge Rejects 'Riot' Charges Against Journalist Amy Goodman for Covering North Dakota Pipeline Protest

    By David on 19 October 2016 GMT





    Human Rights
    Judge Rejects 'Riot' Charges Against Journalist Amy Goodman for Covering North Dakota Pipeline Protest

    In a win for First Amendment rights.

    Democracy Now! October 18, 2016



    ‘On Monday, a North Dakota judge refused to authorize riot charges against award-winning journalist Amy
    Goodman for her reporting on an attack against Native American-led anti-pipeline protesters.

    “This is a complete vindication of my right as a journalist to cover the attack on the protesters, and of the
    public’s right to know what is happening with the Dakota Access pipeline,” said Goodman.’
