21 Arrested During Peaceful Prayer Ceremony at Standing Rock
Robert Redford: "If this is legal, one must seriously question the laws of the land."
This article includes two videos of yesterday’s assembly (September 28) by Native Americans to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the actions by the police to confront them. To me, the police appeared to the aggressors; parts of the video show some of the police loading their weapons with ammunition.
I have a bunch of stuff I want to say, but for now, I’m counting to 10, but I think it may be have to reach 100. I’ll just end it with, “Why are the cops acting out this way? WTF?”

It’s spread to Iowa now. Excerpt from an article in Zero Hedge:
The media blackout of opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline continues as widening protests, which have now blocked pipeline construction in Iowa, go unreported by the national corporate media.
The “Mississippi Stand” water protector encampment in Sandusky, Iowa, successfully blocked Dakota Access Pipeline construction as of Saturday, September 24th. The protests are taking place where the pipeline is planned to cross the Mississippi River.
Water protectors attached themselves to construction equipment in acts of civil disobedience until they were eventually arrested — but police failed to corral them before they halted the pipeline’s construction. Law enforcement arrested a total of 12 people on Saturday at the Mississippi Stand site, according to independent media outlet Unicorn Riot. At least 44 people have been arrested at the Iowa protest site in previous weeks.
