2-22-17 ~ Brandon Green… I love our water protectors who have been here for so long fighting! Through blizzards, wood shortages, hatred, lack of fund (who have never asked for a dime), who ended up having to build their shelters of the left over scraps of those a little more well off, who entire outfit is from the donations brought in. I love our water protectors who are so humble. They never came in like a savior here to save the day. They are here out of love for the water and for mother earth. These are the purest souls and have earned all my praises. I love you guys!
( shh don’t tell anybody but we still here)
2-22-17 ~ Sacred Stone Camp … Riot Police from Wisconsin and North Dakota chasing down Eric Poemz as he was reporting from the frontline. Police disgustingly appear to take photos with Eric Poemz after injuring him (like hunting photos).
2-22-17 ~ Native Americans Cherokee … This morning at Standing Rock, many women participated in a sacred ceremonial Women’s Jingle dance and this was the first time it was allowed to be recorded. The dancers invited the media to record it because they want the healing power to be shared with the world.
2-22-17 ~ The Fight is not over
Over 450,000 of you took action demanding Obama halt construction. Thank you!
Now we need your help finishing the fight.
On January 18th, the Department of the Army published the Notice of Intent to require an Environmental Impact Statement in the Federal Register. This is another small victory in defeating the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline.
The fight, however, is still not over.
This notice opens the public scoping phase and invites anyone interested to help them to identify potential issues, concerns, and reasonable alternatives that should be considered in an EIS.
While the EIS is exactly what we called for, we must ensure that it fully takes into consideration tribal treaty rights, natural resources, cultural and sacred places, socio-economical concerns, environmental justice, and the health and wellbeing of those downstream who rely on our drinking water.
We need your continued support as this process moves forward.
The Department of the Army’s Civil Works division will be accepting public comment until February 20th, 2017

2-22-17 ~ In a symbolic gesture, the protesters set fire to their camp
“People have said their last prayers, and offered cedar to the sacred fire and are also burning these structures we have ceremonially built, so they must be ceremonially removed,”
2-22-17 ~ Update. We made it to Standing Rock around 230 am local time. We sat around a drum circle for the last several hours singing beautiful songs. Tomorrow I will be arrested on felony charges for refusing to leave. I take everything that is coming to me in the hope that we can make a difference here. They have already released dogs, burned down their encampments and sent in the army to shoot the unarmed crowds, so who knows what is in store for those of us on the front line tomorrow, especially with Trump in office! Thank all of you for your blessings and warm thoughts. Please continue to keep me and everyone else in Standing Rock in your prayers and meditations. At this point the whole world needs your prayers.

2-22-17 ~ North Dakota Access pipeline protesters prayed and set fire to a handful of wooden structures on Wednesday, hours ahead of a deadline set by the Army Corps of Engineers to close the camp.
Some of the praying protesters said burning the structures — which appeared to include a yurt and a teepee — was part of the ceremony of leaving. As heavy rain turned to snow, some said they expected no trouble during the eviction, despite a heavy law enforcement presence.
2-22-17 ~ At the 2:56 minute mark ND officers just BROKE Eric Poemz hip (yes, really), took his phone, and it continued to live feed as they incriminated themselves… asked him to apologize… classic Morton County “justice”. I don’t know how to save the feed other than just clicking the Facebook button to save the video but as we’ve learned… If they delete the video entirely, there is nothing that’s then being saved… video will appear as “not found”. If you know a way around this, please save that video for Eric because he will need it later.
12-22-17 ~ THE LAST AKICITA ~ Final Day at #NoDAPL’s Oceti Camp. by Ythsta Resovich
He stands, quiet leaning against the War Pony, looking out over the camp with a faraway stare, seeing the past five months of who and what he is now like a movie playing in his mind. I didn’t understand, couldn’t understand until I got here, the phrases “there is no time” and “that’s old news”. I didn’t see the world the way it is here, all too safe and secure in my white-bread existence. Continue Reading http://tinyurl.com/hy7jetx
2-22-17 ~ Standing Rock & the Fight to Keep Fossil Fuels in the Ground
Right now, water protectors are being evacuated from the main camp at Standing Rock. The state of North Dakota issued an emergency evacuation last week for the main camp, formerly known as Oceti Sakowin, that goes into effect today. While some are optimistic as new camps emerge on higher ground and as the land is returned to its former state, others can’t help but feel heartache to see the camp pack up and to see Dakota Access prepare to drill under the Missouri River. Continue Reading

2-22-17 ~ Indigenous Rising Media… Water protectors are hard at work making sure to leave the Oceti Sakowin camp area better than we found it. Fake news about the ‘mess’ is rampant, so hopefully this clears up questions. We are still committed to protecting the water of the Missouri River. But if the camp is evicted or raided, it will only hinder or stop the cleanup. Please watch and share.
2-22-17 ~ Ernesto Burbank… More water protectors arrested today @ Standing Rock. Witnesses are saying many without being read their rights or any charges being stated. This is a sad day simultaneously for America and the Earth. When corporate profiteers totally hold the strings on the law enforcers and Government. The slope just got very steep and slippery. I said this was a test case for the world and that’s why I would stand loud and strong with the cause. It’s not just a blow for Standing Rock. It sets a new directive for the modern Western World. I’m not liking this directive at all.
2-22-17 ~ 10 arrested as Oceti Sakowin DAPL protest camp evacuated Wednesday
Governor Burgum and other state authorities say Thursday at 9 a.m. they will re-start clean up efforts at the Oceti Sakowin Camp. And they’re giving protesters still left at the camp one more chance to leave.
2-22-17 ~ LA TIMES… 10 arrested as authorities close in on Dakota Access pipeline protest camp
The standoff marked the culmination of one of the nation’s largest and longest environmental protests, which at its peak drew thousands of activists who said the project would threaten the water supply and sacred sites of the North Dakota tribe.
2-22-17 ~ Scheduled Eviction of Main #NoDAPL Encampment
After nearly a year of struggling against the Dakota Access Pipeline’s construction underneath the Missouri River, water protectors are now scheduled to be evicted from their main encampment. The encampment, on unceded Fort Laramie Treaty land and maintained by the Army Corps of Engineers, has a few hundred water protectors still holding steady as the eviction looms.
Ceremonial fires have been raging throughout the snow-filled morning.
2-22-17 ~ These last moments of the Standing Rock protest will break your heart
After a Trump administration executive order, the Army Corps of Engineers ordered protesters to vacate the camp by 2 p.m. local time on Feb. 22, 2017. Authorities were set to physically remove everyone in the way of the Dakota Access Pipeline’s construction upon sacred Native American land.
2-22-17 ~ Last Remnants of Dakota Access Pipeline Protest Camp Are Engulfed in Flames
Some of the last remnants of the Dakota Access pipeline protest camp went up in flames Wednesday as opponents of the project set fire to makeshift wooden housing as part of a leaving ceremony ahead of a government deadline to get off the federal land.
2-22-17 ~ Dakota Access Protesters Arrested As Deadline Passes To Depart Camp
Images showing clashes with law enforcement and pipeline security workers motivated thousands of Americans to support the tribe by donating hundreds of thousands of dollars or joining Oceti Sakowin and the other water protector camps. It also provided a model for environmental protests that essentially went viral as camps sprang up to halt pipelines in Texas, Florida and other spots around the country. “The camp was the light in the middle of the dark,” said Indigenous Environmental Network organizer Dallas Goldtooth. “It was the fire that fueled so many fights across the country,”
