"Veterans came from as far away as Italy. One walked from Oklahoma. All are now family, the tribe says"


"Standing Rock welcomes veterans with prayer, song, smudging"

"Our mission is peace and prayer," organizers say they will take no direct action against police.

3. It's the cavalry

coming to save the day! Love these pics, but most of all, love these patriotic Vets standing with Native Americans. All of these people are brave and courageous.

4. "The veterans will muster at noon on Sunday..."

“In the ultimate expression of alliance, we are there to put our bodies on the line, no matter the physical cost, in complete nonviolence,” wrote the group’s in its “operations order.” The group added, “Our mission is to prevent progress on the Dakota Access Pipeline and draw national attention to the human rights warriors of the Sioux tribes.”

The veterans will “muster” at noon on Sunday at a high school gymnasium on the Standing Rock reservation, then “quickly form into platoons and companies” for anticipated confrontations on the front lines with several hundred state police, county sheriff deputies the North Dakota National Guard, and military vehicles originally designed for use in Iraq and Afghanistan. “We will likely be gassed, pepper sprayed, shot with rubber bullets, hit with batons,” said the order, adding, “It is critical that we demonstrate discipline, resolve and bravery. This is not an action of violence.”

5. Are people just now finding out about this?

The vets going over has been one of the bright spots in my life since the election. It gives me hope that when shit starts hitting the fan, there ARE going to be people who will be willing to fight for the rights and safety of complete strangers.

But at the same time, it's also been disheartening due to the lack of knowledge of even the existence of this issue, in the general population. I'm out of the country (have been for a couple months), so I don't get US news except online. The DAPL has been all over the sites and forums I visit all that time. But it's only been since the water cannons were used a week or so ago, and then the news that a large group of vets were going that I've seen it anywhere on FB. A friend posted something after the water cannons and I was flabbergasted at how many responded that they didn't even know anything was going on over there.

Is this just not on the news in the US? What story, if any, is being told?

8. Having only antenna TV, most of what I've seen has been on BBC World News. Overall, most broadcast

news was dedicated to covering the election. Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC visited the camp and dedicated several broadcasts to Standing Rock. PBS had some coverage. I don't watch much TV to begin with

10. Ugh

Thanks for the info.

This highlights a bigger-picture issue for me, which is: if the DAPL isn't getting mainstream coverage (and it should be!) how do we get the word out? Once Trump's administration is in full swing, all the DAPL people will be like "Seee.....??? See what we dealt with?"

How do we engage people to pay attention to these things? Cause there are gonna be a lot more of them in the coming years.

11. The world-wide grassroots 'activists' are interconnected on social media. The tribal chairman

was invited to speak at the UN in Geneva, UN observers for human rights did travel to Standing Rock, as did Amnesty International, etc.

Some of us here have been working to keep these stories on the front burner. I don't think activists rely on mainstream media and consider it as infotainment. There have been worldwide demonstrations and rallies in support of Standing Rock, and these continue daily.

13. I've archived most of my NoDAPL posts in my "journal" link, and will continue posting...

Today is an international day of prayer at Standing Rock, and tomorrow is scheduled for the Grand Entry Procession of veterans.
