Neil Young Rallies Behind Arrested Filmmaker

Emmy-winning filmmaker Deia Schlosberg

Neil Young is calling for charges to be dropped against Emmy-winning filmmaker Deia Schlosberg who has been charged with three counts of conspiracy.

The documentary film maker was arrested while filming protesters who shut down oil pipelines from Canada to the United States, saying that she was acting as a journalist. Schlosberg, producer of the 2016 documentary How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can't Change, was taken into custody at a TransCanada Corp's Keystone Pipeline site in Pembina County, North Dakota.

The charges carry a maximum penalty of 45 years in prison.

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple, supporters wrote that the charges against her were "unfair, unjust and illegal."

The letter was signed by more than 30 artists, filmmakers, writers and journalists, including Neil Young, Mark Ruffalo, actors Daryl Hannah and Frances Fisher and singer Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

"Journalism, especially documentary filmmaking, is not a crime, it's a responsibility. The freedom of the press is a fundamental right in our free society. The charges filed against her are an injustice that must be dropped immediately," said the letter, posted on the website EcoWatch.

NEW SONG/VIDEO: "Indian Givers" by Neil Young

Here's a new song and video by Neil Young called 'Indian Givers'.

The video documents the Native American protests in Dakota over a pipeline.

"Now it's been about 500 years
We keep taking what we gave away
Just like what we call Indian givers"

The Standing Rock Indian Reservation have protested the expansion of the Dakota Access Pipeline on their territorial lands, leading to clashes with Big Energy security forces.

There’s a battle raging on the sacred land
Our brothers and sisters have to take a stand
Against us now for what we all been doing
On the sacred land there’s a battle brewing

I wish somebody would share the news

So we say: "Honor The Treaties". Honor Mother Earth.

Who's gonna stand up and save the earth?
Who's gonna say that she's had enough?
Who's gonna take on the big machine?
Who's gonna stand up and save the earth?
This all starts with you and me!

It's up to you & me now...

Yep, Water is Life. I think I saw that on a t-shirt recently....

The essence of the article, (and The Water):

“The mining companies, they’re so strong. They have so much money,” the girl said.

“Those water spirits are more powerful than any bank, anything that money can buy,” Day said.

Thank you, Neil Young, for not selling out or rolling over for the Status Quo. He fights for the Natives, he fights for us. When even the Democrats are selling out to Big Oil, Big Brother, and Big $, Neil remains priceless, not voiceless. In the age of whores, Neil is not for sale (although he does earn some good money).

Water is LIFE. Neil is like water. Rock on. Be the rain.
