Voices from the Front lines: The Oceti Sakowin Speak Out Against Dakota Access PipelineTweet
“It’s like the same old story with the government and the agencies and big oil. We don’t matter. They’re coming again. When will it stop? I’m not expendable. My Grandchildren are not expendable. We have to fight to live.” ~LaDonna Tamakawastewin Allard (Standing Rock Sioux)
Tribal citizens from Standing Rock and other bands of the Oceti Sakowin (Seven Council Fires) have established a spiritual encampment in effort to stop the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
The camp was erected in the path of the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline.
Alternative news media site Unicorn Riot were present to document the voices from front lines in the latest battle against multinational corporations.
