Have you been following any of these events in North Dakota? It’s been absolutely crazy. I hope you share this with your friends, reach out to tell people what the mainstream media is barely beginning to report on slightly. I’m going to give you several links for good information. Things really exploded at the Oceti Sakawan camp near the Standing Rock Reservation as a group of peaceful protesters attempted to remove a barricade to allow emergency vehicles access to the camp. They were brutally attacked by militarized police. 167 reported injuries, with one of them being so severe a woman’s arm is in danger of being amputated. At the end of this page is a go fund me site that has already raised $111,000 and just over five hours.
