The situation in North Dakota with the Standing Rock Sioux defending their land to prevent the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline is becoming increasingly dire. At the bare minimum you should be aware of what’s happening as a militarized police force is attacking unarmed indigenous people who are protecting their rights and what they hold sacred: land and water. Now is not the time to be willfully ignorant and asleep. Below are just some of the major banks that are funding the theft of indigenous land. This week I am shutting down my #tdbank account and moving my entire life savings to a credit union. I’m tired of pulling levers every four years hoping a savior will stand against the corporate beast they are beholden to. The beast must be bled dry.

In 2012 I filmed this speech by Annawon Weeden (Mashpee Wampanoag) at the National Day of Mourning and I think it still resonates.
