Water protectors in NYC support Standing Rock (PHOTOS/VIDEOS).

Square

Thursday, February 23th, 2017. New York City – Yesterday, Wednesday, February 22, a group of water protectors gathered in Union Square to support water protectors at Standing Rock.

Yesterday, water protectors were evicted from the camps near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota.

The Oceti Sakowin Camp: a first of its kind historic gathering of Indigenous Nations. The most recent such assembly of Tribes occurred when the Great Sioux Nation gathered before the Battle at the Little Big Horn.

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe supports the peaceful and prayerful message of the Oceti Sakowin leaders. The on-reservation camp allowed the tribe to explore longer term ways to meet the needs of the community that is 100% off-the-grid and features Solar & Wind power generation.”

These are some of the photographs that I took of the rally in Union Square.

SocialistWorker.org writes, “Days after taking office, Trump signed a presidential memorandum ordering the Army Corps to expedite building permits for the DAPL and even the long-defunct Keystone XL pipeline. The Army Corps did Trump’s bidding, granting a permit for Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) to drill under Lake Oahe along the Missouri River, without bothering to complete the environmental impact statement it had earlier mandated.

ETP got started immediately with drilling in an area that is sacred land of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. The company brags that it can have the DAPL operational within 30 days.

The Army Corps followed up its drilling permit with orders to clear encampments from land it controls along the Cannonball River. Meanwhile, the water protectors who remain at the Standing Rock camps have faced intensified repression from law enforcement agencies at all levels, from federal to local.”

This is what people said on Twitter:

Salon says, “Wednesday marked a last stand of sorts at Standing Rock, South Dakota, where about 200 to 300 “water protectors” have remained for months to protest completion of the Dakota Access Pipeline, which would transport 470,000 barrels of oil a day across four states. The Army Corps of Engineers has ordered that the Oceti Sakowin camp near the Standing Rock Sioux reservation be closed at 2 p.m. local time Wednesday, citing the potential for spring flooding.

Like the Indian warrior in the iconic old west image “The End of the Trail” (a late 1800s sculpture by South Dakota artist James Earle Fraser) who slumps over his horse’s back, weary, after a long and difficult battle, those left at Standing Rock remained, prayed and burned the teepees that had housed so many over the past ten months. They also burned wooden structures central to the camp’s function, so government engineers could not touch what they made and found sacred. The smoke that rose to the heavens was symbolic, as were the prayers: this was a ceremony of leaving.”
