10 Images That Perfectly Illustrate The Struggle Against The Dakota Access Pipeline
As you recall, in September, Neil Young released a new song and video called 'Indian Givers'.
The video documents the Native American protests in Dakota over a pipeline. 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.
Since the early days of confrontation, the battle has only heated up. Here are 10 Images That Perfectly Illustrate The Struggle Against The Dakota Access Pipeline (via TheAntiMedia.org by Nick Bernabe):
The struggle to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline has been mired in police brutality and militarization. In fact, many have likened the atmosphere in Standing Rock, North Dakota, to a war zone.
The corporate media initially refused to cover the Dakota Access Pipeline protests, though the ongoing story’s virality on social media eventually forced it into the mainstream. Even now that the #NoDAPL movement has developed into a national political narrative, the media continues to whitewash the severity of the crackdown against the Native American protesters, who call themselves “water protectors.”
