Police Raid Standing Rock Camp, Destroy Tipis and Are Burning What Remains
February 2, 2017
Following our earlier report from Standing Rock on the police raid of the Last Child camp, reports began to roll in that police had taken down tipis and burned whatever remained.
Some of the livestreaming of these incidences was blocked, but what we have been given is as follows.
Please watch and help us get the word out.
Johnny Danger live streamed from the site of this injustice…
Shiyé Bidzííl once again live streamed and related the following message…
Chase IronEyes has been arrested!!!! And the police have been taking down tipis on new camp!! Because its on private land.
That’s right, the police are trespassing to enforce Donald Trump’s illegal executive order allowing the Dakota Access Pipeline to move forward.
Following that livestream, Shiye reported that police were blocking roads and access to the main Oceti Sakowin camp, saying: “B.I.A. Has blocked road access to main camp by cannonball pit stop.”
Help get the word out and show that you STILL STAND WITH STANDING ROCK!
