Repost from @janny.organically about the horrifying situation at Standing Rock. - “Isn’t it ironic people are gearing up for #thanksgivingwhen Native Americans are being tear gassed, shot with rubber bullets and water CANNONS as we speak.” Not to mention it's 25 degrees!
They are also tossing concussion grenades and “non lethal” projectiles and who knows, are they still unleashing those dogs that already tore into peoples face?!
Are you comfortable right now? Are you drinking your clean water right now? Even if you can’t get on board (for whatever reason) regarding land rights, these peaceful protestors are fighting for YOUR right to clean and uncontaminated water.
The mainstream media has been proven wrong time and time again, particularly evident this last election and here we are, believing the lies they tell about these protestors and their “violence” while the government has issued excessive force against these protestors. Don’t leave them alone, don’t scroll past this and do nothing while others fight for BASIC rights.
Call the White House 202-456-1414, Tweet @POTUS and demand they call off the National Guard an STOP the Dakota Access Pipeline. ENOUGH.
**Update, apparently there is too high call volume and callers are being redirected to leave a comment at www.whitehouse.gov so I would encourage you to do that and continue to post using the hashtags #nodapl #istandwithstandingrock
@thegreenproductjunkie has also posted about another way to donate through @standwithstandingrock . They are having an Instagram auction going on until tomorrow (Tuesday). All of the benefits go to peeps over in Standing Rock (they are in desperate need of supplies). There's everything on there from jewelry, to skin care, to clothes. These people out there are cold, wet, hungry and being treated horribly. Check them out and support these amazing people fighting for US!
