“On September 3, the Dakota Access pipeline company attacked Native Americans with dogs and pepper spray as they protested against the $3.8 billion pipeline’s construction. If completed, the pipeline would carry about 500,000 barrels of crude per day from North Dakota’s Bakken oilfield to Illinois. The project has faced months of resistance from the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and members of nearly 100 more tribes from across the U.S. and Canada.”_Democracy Now!
The United States government used dogs against African-Americans during the civil rights movement, too.
“The ‘Dakota Access’ Pipeline (DAPL) is a $3.8B, 1,100 mile fracked-oil pipeline currently under construction from the Bakken shale fields of North Dakota to Peoria, Illinois. DAPL is slated to cross Lakota Treaty Territory at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation where it would be laid underneath the Missouri River, the longest river on the continent.
The companies building DAPL were able to secure a $2.5 billion loan from a collection of banks to build the pipeline. But the pipeline companies can only access $1.1 billion of this loan until certain progress is made on the pipeline project. Three of the main lenders are Citigroup, TD Securities and Mizuho Bank.”
NYC Prayer March” has been organized by the Eagle and Condor Community Center as a direct action response to the injustices experienced by the Water Protectors at Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.

We are organizing this Prayer March in solidarity with Standing Rock. We are against Violation of Indigenous Treaty Rights, Oil regimes, Militarization of the Police, Environmental Racism and the US Media Blackout. We are for the right to Assemble Peacefully, uphold the Freedom of Religion, and the right to Protect Sacred Water and our Earth Mother, so that we may preserve a sustainable future for the next 7 generations.

TODAY, there is also a march in London, the #MillionMaskMarch. According to The Guardian, “The gathering of thousands in central London – in protest at austerity economics, official corruption, erosion of civil liberties, surveillance and a litany of other causes – is held annually on 5 November, a date held as symbolic for its connection with the gunpowder plot.”

“On Saturday in North Dakota, security guards working for the Dakota Access pipeline company attacked Native Americans with dogs and pepper spray as they resisted the $3.8 billion pipeline’s construction on a tribal burial site. As the video of Saturday’s action went viral, people immediately began comparing the dog attacks at Standing Rock to the violent crackdown against African-American protesters during the civil rights movement. For more on the dog attacks at Saturday’s protest, we speak with Jonni Joyce. She’s an expert in law enforcement canine handling with more than 25 years of experience. She is the head of the consulting firm Jonni Joyce Seminars, International in South Dakota.”_Democracy Now!
