The governor of North Dakota has ordered an evacuation of the Standing Rock protest site. On 2/22 all protestors will be required to evacuate the land they have been peacefully protesting at for months in an attempt to protect the land and defend the sacred. They will most likely be met with violent force and are all facing federal charges. This is not ok. So pray, chant, om, burn sage, or simply send love, but stand with Standing Rock. This is not just a threat to Natives but a threat to us all. #RezpectOurWater#NoDAPL#MniWiconi#WaterIsLife#IStandWithStandingRock
The #DakotaAccessPipeline has NOT been stopped, and tomorrow at 2:22pm any protective rights the protesters have will cease and they will all be removed and arrested probably in a very harmful and disturbing way. REMEMBER these people are not only fighting for the security and protection to one of the last of our largest bodies of natural water but they are standing up for rights and land that they have been promised since the birth of our greed-founded country. PROTECT THESE PEOPLE!! They are literally on the front lines against our truest enemies. The #waterprotectors Are the true heroes. They are sacrificing their lives, their homes, and their freedom for the children of people who don't even care about them, and they're not getting paid to do it. No, instead they are getting water hosed in freezing temps and rubber bullets to the eyes and tear gassed at free will. . CALL, Tell them where you're from and ask about their participation in the No Dakota Access
Pipeline Camp Raids (Standing Rock) by 2pm on February 22nd. Demand that no one be injured or wrongfully arrested. Demand an extension on the eviction of the Water Protectors!! DO SOMETHING FOR THEM, THEY ARE DOING SO MUCH FOR YOU, YOUR CHILDREN AND THEIR FUTURE EARTH!! #NODAPL#saynotodapl#dapl#stopthedapl#protectthewaterprotectors#media#earth#whatsreallyimportant#standwithstandingrock#protectstandingrock#istandwithstandingrock
There is so much disturbing daily news that the historical last stand at Standing Rock has barely made headlines in the last two weeks. There are a lot of reasons for this but mostly it seems like state-sponsored violence is just so completely soaked and braided into the fabric of contented neo-liberalism that we can't look at individual acts of brutality because that would require full-time cognitive alertness or because we are told these individual atrocities must be overlooked unless we plan to stand in the way of our most treasured societal pillars; economic vitality in the market democracy. This is not a system that was invented by Donald Trump, or any one member of his cabinet - this is a system that exists just as long as a few hoarding privileged people like myself can continue business as usual because business as usual has never come at our expense. The police have now surrounded the camp at Standing Rock calling for a complete evacuation by any means necessary (read: brute force, trumped up incarceration charges, violent seizure of property) in the next 24 hours. What are we so distracted by to look away now at the last stand?? After all that momentum? All those pink hats and the marches and the petitions and the wailing. It's impossible to be everywhere we want all at once, but we must still try to pick our battles. Solidarity is time-sensitive and right now my heart beats with the Indigenous men and women and their allies fighting on all of our behalf. We could be the generation that see the fossil fuel industries cater the beef sliders at their own funeral, but right now this battle is being fought primarily by people who should not need to keep fighting for their basic rights, on their treaty land to boot. It's just not right. Until whites like me admit that not taking part in politics or acts of resistance is privilege then our place in history as gluttonous garbage monsters will be secured. We're wearing very poorly tethered lace blindfolds at this point in case we want to say we didn't notice. #mniwiconi#waterislife#istandwithstandingrock#nodapl#nokxl#keepitintheground
Did you know there is a complete MEDIA BLACKOUT at Standing Rock? Aside from social media there is virtually zero coverage allowed of what has been taking place out there. I thought America was the land of FREE SPEECH?! Do you know that the State of ND plans to evict the Standing Rock camp and tear down all the structures TOMORROW? This is Native land. We must stand in solidarity and demand that the government uphold the treaty's put in place to protect our Native Brothers and Sisters, REGARDLESS OF WHICH POLITICAL SIDE YOU ARE ON! I think we can all agree on one thing..WATER IS LIFE! 🏼🏼🏼#pray#standingrock#istandwithstandingrock#waterislife
Tomorrow, the eviction of the camps at Standing Rock will begin. And though my heart is broken, that the American government has yet again turned their back on my people in their time of need, we must remain strong and prayed up. I will never trust the government again; this has been a hard lesson to learn, but I'm glad I have had an awakening. This president and every other person with political power in this country doesn't care about the American people, if they did, they wouldn't be allowing this torture to be happening to American people over oil and blood money. This could be anyone; anyone putting up a fight to keep their land free from the grips of the government, fighting for their right to basic human needs. And when the government starts shooting you with rubber bullets, throwing concussion grenades at you, blasting you with high power water, spraying you with extreme amounts of pepper spray, beating you, making false claims about you, threatening your freedom, false imprisoning you, locking you in dog kennels, and arresting you for praying, dancing, and singing; when your back is against the wall we will be there for you, even those who were against us. Even those who were silent. Even those who hurt us. We will be there. We are not going away; no matter how many vile holidays you celebrate, no matter how much you justify this injustice in the name of oil; we will be there.
Tomorrow at 2pm, water protectors still in the main camp that they have lived in since last fall will be forcibly removed by law enforcement and security forces. Some will willingly stay and face arrest, brutality and jail time. They do this for all of us. Thank you for caring about the planet enough to risk it all 🏼 Go to my FB for links to donate to bail and legal funds
Some think this is a game ... some think this is just for good looks ... some think that ain't shit happening and everything is fine ... YALL KEEP THINKING THAT ... WHILE I GO AND UNITE WITH WATER PROTECTORS OF STANDING ROCK AND OUR BROTHERS AND SISTARS IN FLINT ... to help find a solution on how to HELP YOU 🏽ALL WHILE YALL JUST THINKING ... 🏽 #mniwiconi#ISTANDWITHSTANDINGROCK#ISTANDWITHFLINT#ISTANDFORCLEANWATERINAMERICA
Standing Rock is surrounded by militarized police with deadline hours away: 'We need help'. ... So so wrong. I do not want my government to imprison, hurt or kill Americans practicing their right to gather, to demonstrate peaceably and to free speech. Epecially when they're protecting our most valuable resource. One we all need. MIWICONI!!!! #Repost@pearljam
With you in peace and prayer. PART 1. #DAPL#StandingRock#IStandWithStandingRock#WaterIsLife#miwiconi
This post may reference events that are merely a few weeks old (it's only a few weeks of Trump???? Feels like forever! ) but the information here is important
As #rachelmaddow keeps saying, don't pay so much attention to what trump SAYS as to what he DOES
In case you haven't seen what's been happening at #StandingRock recently, the issue is not resolved. There is still a lot going on as the Trump administration is pushing the pipeline construction forward. That's why I'm truly honored to be a part of The Changemaker's Summit which is raising money for the cause. 100% of Net Profits are going to the Standing Rock Legal Fund so you can feel good knowing that your donation is headed in a useful direction.
For $15 you get access to the interviews done for a week (my week is shown in the pic) and for $50 you can have access to the whole thing. There are some really amazing individuals involved so be sure to check it out.

Suggestion of what to say when you call: "I am calling to urge you to protect those at standing rock who are going to be kicked off their own land. Stop the DAPL that is being built through land that was never ceded to the American government since the 1851 treaty. The world is watching the inhumane treatment of the #WaterProtectors at the hands of the militarized police that energy transfer company has sent there, among other militarized forces. The water protectors are simply trying to protect their sacred burial grounds, prayer sites, native homelands & the right to clean water, which affects 14-17 million downstream"
Also call Senator John Hoeven & say that as an advocate against the water protectors, we do not feel he will fight for Native American rights as the new head of "Indian affairs": (202) 224-2551
The Halluci Nation
The human beings
See the spiritual in the natural
Through sense and feeling
Everything is related
All the things of earth and in the sky have spirit
Everything is sacred
Confronted by the ALie Nation
The subjects and the citizens
See the material religions through trauma and numb
Nothing is related
All the things of the earth and in the sky
Have energy to be exploited
Even themselves, mining their spirits into souls sold
Into nothing is sacred, not even their self
