Winona LaDuke: An Environmental Protection Agency-led investigation determined 40,000 pounds of Rozol poison had been illegally distributed across more than 5,400 acres on both the Cannonball and the Wilder ranches.
Winona LaDuke: As the bulldozers and emboldened Morton County march forward, water protectors are forced to remove, as thousands of our ancestors before. We have been here before, it is the American way from Sandy Lake to Big Mountain.
Dick Price: Besides being a masterfully conceived, thoroughly engaging film, what makes “First Daughter” so moving is the heartening solution it offers in these dark times.
Georgianne Nienaber: One of the important things is to get the truth out in mainstream America. The vets said they would like to gather all the videos from everybody and get the story out.
Marcy Winograd: Soon after the celebrations came the fears that President-elect Donald Trump would go full speed ahead with permitting at Standing Rock.
Kevin Zeese and Margaret Flowers: The courage and ethics of the participants at Standing Rock, some of whom have been there since April, were like a magnet to those of us who care about justice and the future of the planet.
Georgianne Nienaber: In a show of solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux, Congresswoman Gabbard is joining thousands of veterans from across the United States who have come to Standing Rock and the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation to protest the building of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
John L. Walthen: The camp has grown again in support of the newly energized water protectors who have vowed to never leave until the government does what’s right. Stop DAPL.
John L. Wathen: Dalrymple has imposed as many inhumane restrictions of the camps as he can in an attempt to evict people from Standing Rock in the dead of the North Dakota winter.
Ellen Linden: President Obama can not only order the work to stop, but he can also deploy the Army Corps of Engineers, or even the National Guard, to stop the violence being perpetrated by local, regional and state officials against the nonviolent protestors.
Rev. John Floberg: It is a justifiable reaction to defend sacred places. The Sioux, Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara and Cheyenne tribes know all of this acreage as a sacred place. The land and events that took place there is in their history.
Stephen Fox: The only thing that might prevent a huge and violent confrontation in North Dakota a week from today, with the Corps of Engineers Eviction Notice set for December 5, will be the members of the United States Senate and Congress who intercede next week.
Laura Finley: Even more ironic than celebrating the destruction of Native Americans land and lifestyle is the fact that most Americans have no idea that such destruction continues today, and that our president has the power to stop at least one part of it immediately.
