FEATURING NICK TILSEN – Water protectors at Cannon Ball, North Dakota were attacked brutally by a large formation of well-armed police on Sunday night, targeting them with water cannons, tear gas, and rubber bullets. More than a dozen people were hospitalized with injuries and hypothermia. One person reportedly suffered a heart attack. The indigenous-led activists were attempting to unblock a public road when police attacked.

There have been solidarity protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline all over the country. Last week the Army Corps of Engineers released a statement saying that, “additional discussion and analysis are warranted in light of the history of the Great Sioux Nation’s dispossessions of lands.”
