Early Monday news – I love that the Veterans going to Standing Rock seemed to make a difference. It is about time that so many other people are standing with the Sioux tribe. It is way past time. I’ll be keeping my eye on the breaking news today to see if the people will be leaving as asked, or if they will remain to keep up the pressure. The Corp of Engineers has said they would not try to force people to leave, but thousands want to stay to make sure their voices are finally heard.
The Governor of the state apparently is fighting this, stating this “is a serious mistake”, so for all you activists out there, please call, e-mail, fax, or write the Governor Jack Dalrymple, 600 E. Blvd., Bismarck, ND 58505-0001,Fax: (701) 328-2205, Phone: (701) 328-2200, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Send the info to your friends, and post it on Twitter and any blogs or websites you have.
I’m not liking the little I know of what the Trump administration may do, but I’m holding back any opinion until he is in office and I know more about his plan for “privatization”, which from past history doesn’t work out too good for the Native American community. It could very well mean more land being taken away from them, so now it is a “wait and see” game, but for the time being, the pipeline appears it will be redirected away from Sacred ground and the water supply at Standing Rock.
