This news has me smiling!

With all of the brutality being unleashed up the peaceful protesters standing up for the rights of the Native Americans it is so refreshing to see our veterans standing with the people.

It will be kind of difficult for the police to unleash their hell upon veterans that are in their uniforms! The state has over stepped its bounds, continuing what amounts to genocide against the remaining Native American population. This issue has been going on since the "birth" of our nation and it is time for it to come to an end.

We have seen people across the board come together to stand against such actions, with virtually no coverage of this peaceful gathering that represents the true nature of humanity.

Proud to salute these veterans for their dedication to defending the true princinples of this country!


“This country is repressing our people,” says Michael A. Wood Jr., a Marine Corps veteran who recently retired from the Baltimore police force to work toward reforming law enforcement. “If we’re going to be heroes, if we’re really going to be those veterans that this country praises, well, then we need to do the things that we actually said we’re going to do when we took the oath to defend the Constitution from enemies foreign and domestic,” he asserted about his plans to go to Standing Rock.

Woods Jr. is joined by Wes Clark Jr. Clark Jr. is the son of General Wesley Clark, the famous military leader who once warned that shortly after 9/11, the government had its eyes on Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran. Clark would later attempt to distance himself from those statements but still managed to convince his son, a member of the Army at the time, to stay away from Iraq.

“I was like, ‘I’m going back in. I’m going to go in there and # people up,’” Clark Jr. recalls of his desire to fight for the military after 9/11. He later changed his mind after his father warned him, as Task and Purpose summarized, “that as a soldier he would be fighting a war that had nothing to do with defeating al Qaeda.”

Now, Wood Jr. and Clark Jr. are attempting to organize a mass, nonviolent protest against police action in North Dakota. Just this past weekend, a female protester was hit with a concussion grenade, causing severe damage to her arm and requiring surgery.

Other have been tear gassed, tased, beaten, and shot with rubber bullets. Anti-Media journalist Derrick Broze was tased by law enforcement immediately after he declared he was a member of the media. Another journalist was shot with a rubber bullet while standing away from a gathering of protesters as she interviewed an attendee.

Police have made over 470 arrests since August, and the Indigenous Environmental Network claims 167 people were injured just this past Sunday when police deployed water cannons in freezing weather.

It's so very curious why this has been so quiet on the MSM front. I appreciate each and every poster that provides more info on this.

This needs to be dealt with in a different fashion. From what I know of the events, the government has backed a private company for their interests.

Would you please source your article?

Yes sir!

Must have accidentally deleted it during an edit!

Thanks for catch

It is kind of telling how the media has been cramming down weeks of soros funded violence, spreading division and hatred, while ignoring the power of the people standing against the state here at DAPL!

All that force to protect vacant land. Compare that to the protests/riots over the elections. Two very similar scenarios with very different results. There is a HUGE problem here.

And it gets to the heart of all that is wrong with the current paradigm of lies we find ourselves in.

People are waking up to the true nature of the militarized police and what they are used for... oppressing the people.

Across the globe people are feeling the reality of this NWO and it is on full display with the actions of the gestapo attacking the protesters in defense of corporate elitism.

Time for the order followers to wake up and realize that they are not on the right side!

Perhaps a new rule of thumb. The bigger the armament of the police the more important the cause!

Aye in the world of darkness the light is beginning to shine!

The people standing against DAPL have shown the courage and strength of humanity. People have come together in a way we have not seen for a long time, peaceful resistance against violent authorities is playing itself out before the world, media be damned, their smart phone trackers are exposing the truth!

I'm actually looking into going to this myself, if possible. Probably one of the few fights left in this country worth fighting, really.

I wish that I was able to go!

I have been donating what I can through their Go Fund Me accounts, I have known a few people to make their way out there and the fact that people are not backing down give me hope!

I hope you are able to make it Skadi, it is one of the few fights worth fighting... standing against the state, the destruction of the environment, the desecration of sacred lands, uniting with people across the board.

It really goes to show how disjointed the free people of the world have become....
election results trigger people yet loss of individual rights, an overbearing federal police force and land being stolen from the people is far less important.....pretty sad state of affairs

It is a slow process for people to awaken from their brainwashed comfort zones, but this is what we can see occurring at an ever quicker pace.

Social engineers are losing control, we live in unpredictable times and as more people tune out of the fake world of the TV they are awakening to the control system that has lulled them to sleep.

Check with your local reservations that are planning on heading out there as they may be able to help you out.
Even just local support(donating supplies, etc.) goes a long way.

The president needs to order the military in to arrest the police who are committing these offenses and then edict a full halt to the pipeline.

I tend to chafe at the notion that our soldiers "defend our freedom". Its been a long time since we deployed in defense of our national sovereignty. Soldiers tend to defend state interests, which rarely dovetail with the interests of The People.



The battle for preserving our freedom happens with civilians pushing back against the bloated machine. The people who defend your freedoms do it without cameras telling their stories, and they do so without guns and violence, even when faced with violence themselves, because they're smart enough to fight to win the war, not the battle.

Few things in this world inspire me more than sticking it in the mans eye.

Exactly what "offenses" are they?

I'm not too informed on this, but from what I understand the protesters are actually on private property, so that kind of makes it tough for them to have a leg to stand on right now. You are granted the right to protest by the constitution, but your right to protest doesn't supercede other laws. As the typical saying goes, your rights stop where mine start.

Are there any detailed, informative threads of the entire situation here on ATS?

He has no authority to do that.

There are still a lot of people here in the U.S. that harbor a racial bias against the Native Americans. I believe that there are some people who still believe in the 19th century attitude that "the only good Injun is a dead Injun". It's strange to me in a way, although universally common it seems, that the conquering race despises the conquered one and treats them as sub-class citizens, even characterizes them as less than human.

The attitude may be something like, "Screw those damned, lazy, drunk Indians living off of my tax money. They ought to be happy they got casinos".

Our country committed attempted genocide and took everything the Natives had, yet the Indians are the savage subhumans without rights, to be given no regard for the fact they are citizens or even human beings.

It seems that there have been camps at different locations... some of which are controlled by the US Army Corps of Engineers and then on private land owned by Ladonna Allard, a member of the Dakota Sioux.

I believe that the veterans are going to join the protesters at the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, so I think they do have the right to be there.
