The American Government have lied to the Native Americans from the word go. President Andrew Jackson forced the Cherokees from their homes in Tennessee along with some other tribes to what was to be called "Indian Territory." This event was to be known as "The Trail of Tears."

For the past several months, protesters have been harassed and frightened by frequent low-altitude helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft flying surveillance over them.... A local company known as Double M Helicopters, Inc. out of Mandan, ND owns one of the surveillance helicopters. Another of the helicopters, flying on behalf of local law enforcement and flying at low altitudes over the heavily populated main Oceti Sakowin encampment, has been found to have been flying with registration numbers that have been altered in order to disguise the identity of its registered owners.

The registration number N10767 actually belongs to a fixed-wing single-engine pressurized Piper Malibu Mirage (PA46-350P), built in 2007 and owned by Kansas Development Corporation, Inc. in Junction City, Kansas.... The actual N-number for this Bell Ranger 206B helicopter, N16757, identifies it as being registered to Arnold Johnson, Jr. of 37190 US Highway12 in Mina, SD.

Flying with false registration is a serious violation of FAA regulations. Section 49 of the U.S. Code states that anyone “ who knowingly and willfully displays or causes to be displayed on an aircraft a mark that is false or misleading about the nationality or registration of the aircraft” shall be “fined under title 18, imprisoned for not more than 3 years, or both.”

A response to FOIA request 2016-009518F6 provided some, but not all of the missing information. The FOIA response indicated that there is no official record of the person or entity that hired the Bell Ranger, but that Mr. Johnson “admitted that the registration number was altered from N16757 to become N10767.” Johnson told investigators “this was due to threats made against registered owners of aircraft being flown supporting law enforcement during the oil pipeline protests near Bismarck, North Dakota.”

The government is adept at keeping specific groups isolated, impoverished, dependent, and therefore controlled. Native Americans aren't special that way. Just one of.

That said, Native Americans do tend to get fucked over lots. No real loud voice for them. Tragically.

Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) was adopted by the General Assembly on Thursday, 13 September 2007, by a majority of 144 states in favour, 4 votes against (Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States) and 11 abstentions (Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burundi, Colombia, Georgia, Kenya, Nigeria, Russian Federation, Samoa and Ukraine).[1]

In May 2016 Canada officially removed its objector status to UNDRIP, almost a decade after it was adopted by the General Assembly. By now also the other 3 objectors have, to various degrees, turned their vote.

While as a General Assembly Declaration it is not a legally binding instrument under international law,[2] according to a UN press release, it does "represent the dynamic development of international legal norms and it reflects the commitment of the UN's member states to move in certain directions"; the UN describes it as setting "an important standard for the treatment of indigenous peoples that will undoubtedly be a significant tool towards eliminating human rights violations against the planet's 370 million indigenous people and assisting them in combating discrimination and marginalisation."

UNDRIP codifies "Indigenous historical grievances, contemporary challenges and socio-economic, political and cultural aspirations" and is the "culmination of generations-long efforts by Indigenous organizations to get international attention, to secure recognition for their aspirations, and to generate support for their political agendas."[3] Canada Research Chair and faculty member at the University of Saskatchewan,[4][5] Ken Coates, argues that UNDRIP resonates powerfully with Indigenous peoples, while national governments have not yet fully understood its impact.[3]

The Declaration sets out the individual and collective rights of indigenous peoples, as well as their rights to culture, identity, language, employment, health, education and other issues. It also "emphasizes the rights of indigenous peoples to maintain and strengthen their own institutions, cultures and traditions, and to pursue their development in keeping with their own needs and aspirations".[6] It "prohibits discrimination against indigenous peoples", and it "promotes their full and effective participation in all matters that concern them and their right to remain distinct and to pursue their own visions of economic and social development".[6][7] The goal of the Declaration is to encourage countries to work alongside indigenous peoples to solve global issues, like development, multicultural democracy and decentralization.[8] According to Article 31, there is a major emphasis that the indigenous peoples will be able to protect their cultural heritage and other aspects of their culture and tradition, which is extremely important in preserving their heritage. The elaboration of this Declaration had already been recommended by the Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action[9]

The Declaration is structured as a United Nations resolution, with 23 preambular clauses and 46 articles. Articles 1–40 concern particular individual and collective rights of indigenous peoples; many of them include state obligations to protect or fulfil those rights. Article 31 concerns the right to protect cultural heritage as well as manifestations of their cultures including human and genetic resources.CITEREFUN200811[Notes 1] Articles 41 and 42 concern the role of the United Nations. Articles 43–45 indicate that the rights in the declaration apply without distinction to indigenous men and women, and that the rights in the Declaration are "the minimum standards for the survival, dignity and well-being of the indigenous peoples of the world," and do not in any way limit greater rights. Article 46 discusses the Declaration's consistency with other internationally agreed goals, and the framework for interpreting the rights declared within it.

In 2016, Canada officially adopted and promised to implement the declaration fully. Speaking at the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada minister Carolyn Bennett announced, "We are now a full supporter of the declaration, without qualification. We intend nothing less than to adopt and implement the declaration in accordance with the Canadian Constitution."[35] Bennett described the Declaration as "breathing life into Section 35 [of the Canadian Constitution] and recognizing it as a full box of rights for Indigenous Peoples in Canada."[35]

On 16 December 2010, President Obama declared that the United States was endorsing the Declaration. The decision was announced during the second White House Tribal Nations Conference, where he said he is "working hard to live up to" the name that was given to him by the Crow Nation: "One Who Helps People Throughout the Land." Obama has told Native American leaders that he wants to improve the "nation-to-nation" relationship between the United States and the tribes and repair broken promises. Today, there are more than 560 Indian tribes[43] in the United States that are recognized at the federal level, with some sixty-plus tribes recognized at the state level. Many had representatives at the White House conference and applauded Obama's announcement.[44]

The Obama administration's decision came after three consultation meetings with Native Americans and more than 3,000 written comments on the subject.[45] The endorsement also included several interpretations of the meaning of the Declaration. In the view of the United States government, the Declaration advances "a new and distinct international concept of self-determination specific to indigenous peoples," which is not the same as the existing concept in international law.[45] The statement also interprets free, prior, and informed consent, "which the United States understands to call for a process of meaningful consultation with tribal leaders, but not necessarily the agreement of those leaders, before the actions addressed in those consultations are taken."[45]

Dakota Access oil pipeline developer won't consider reroute
Nov 18, 2016

Kelcy Warren, the CEO of Dallas-based Energy Transfer Partners, told The Associated Press that the company has no alternative than to stick to its plan.


President Barack Obama earlier this month raised the possibility of rerouting the pipeline, and Archambault has told the AP that would be acceptable to the tribe as long as the new route wouldn't take it near the reservation.

http://bismarcktribune.com/news/stat...e6111065a.html

Morton County Sheriff's Office estimated 400 protesters were trying to cross the bridge on state Highway 1806 in what they called "an ongoing riot." Law enforcement had formed a line to prevent their movement, and appeared to be using water cannons as temperatures dipped toward the low 20s.

National Day of Mourning

Since 1970, Native Americans and our supporters have gathered at noon on Cole's Hill in Plymouth to commemorate a National Day of Mourning on the US thanksgiving holiday. Many Native Americans do not celebrate the arrival of the Pilgrims and other European settlers. Thanksgiving day is a reminder of the genocide of millions of Native people, the theft of Native lands, and the relentless assault on Native culture. Participants in National Day of Mourning honor Native ancestors and the struggles of Native peoples to survive today. It is a day of remembrance and spiritual connection as well as a protest of the racism and oppression which Native Americans continue to experience.



This year's NDOM is dedicated to the Water Protectors everywhere including those at #StandingRock #NoDAPL, to Native political prisoner Leonard Peltier, and to the Indigenous Peoples Day movement.

While people all over the United States of America are taking part in our national day of overindulging-

There are Native Americans taking part in fasting.

They will march in a protest with empty stomachs.

This is in honor of the suffering of the Water Protecters.

This is an offering of sacrifice.

Meanwhile, the rest of America will join in the frenzy of materialism, after a family gathering.

Nov 18, 2016


The Army Corps of Engineers announced this week that it was delaying until further analysis and consultation with the Standing Rock Sioux tribe a final easement that would allow the drilling for the pipeline to go under the Missouri River at Lake Oahe. President Obama has previously stated that the Army Corps is exploring options for rerouting the pipeline. Unfortunately, simply rerouting the project does not go far enough. The administration should revoke the permits, pull the easement, and order a full environmental impact statement. There are no safe routes for carrying this fracked and highly volatile oil. Any other proposed alternatives, such as drilling deeper under the Missouri River or double-lining the steel pipe, do not provide a guarantee against the prevention of future leaks and spills.

Amnesty International speaks


“While the use of the water cannon may have been necessary to extinguish any fires set to the grasses alongside the bridge, the use of those water cannons against the protesters themselves risks potential injury and hypothermia for the protesters who were sprayed with water in below freezing temperatures,” Huang said in the letter. “Also alarming are videos of the use of tear gas, and reports of rubber bullets used to disperse the crowd of protesters. Any use of force—such as the water cannons, tear gas and rubber bullets—by law enforcement officers must be necessary and proportionate to the threat posed.”

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe also condemned the violence, especially given that it came just a few days after the federal government ordered Energy Transfer Partners and state authorities to stand down during attempts to de-escalate the situation. The federal departments of the Army and Interior also announced that the final easements for tunneling under the Missouri River at Lake Oahe will not be granted until there has been further review.

“The easement to build the unsafe Dakota Access Pipeline has not been granted,” said Standing Rock Sioux Chairman David Archambault II in a statement. “But under the cover of darkness, North Dakota law enforcement continues to engage in unlawful and dehumanizing tactics to subdue peaceful water protectors with tear gas and water cannons. Live video footage on Facebook this Sunday night (Nov. 20) clearly documents that North Dakota’s law enforcement and government officials have sanctioned aggressive acts in failed attempts to disperse water protectors who have the right to demonstrate against and report on this failing project. It’s time for President Obama to condemn these tactics and this pipeline.”

Indeed, law enforcement’s actions may very well have broken international law, Amnesty USA said in its letter.

“The U.S. government is obligated under international law to respect, protect, and fulfill the human rights of indigenous people, including the rights to freedom of expression and assembly,” the letter read. “It is the legitimate right of people to peacefully express their opinion. Public assemblies should not be considered as the ‘enemy.’ The command hierarchy must convey a clear message to law enforcement officials that their task is to facilitate and not to restrict a peaceful public assembly. “


President Obama should have stepped in and intervened.


Trump is certainly not going to add assistance to human rights.

Army Corps Issues Eviction Notice to Standing Rock Sioux Tribe


Issued yesterday, the notice warns that water protectors must evacuate by December 5; designates "Free Speech Zone."

On Friday, Colonel John Henderson with the Army Corps’ Omaha District issued a letter to Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault II. It was an eviction notice with a timestamp for Monday, December 5.

Anyone found to be on "Corps-managed land" north of the Cannonball River after that date will be considered trespassing and subject to prosecution:

Army Corps Says It Will Break Up Standing Rock Camp by December 5, Proposes "Free Speech Zone" Instead


Nov 26, 2016 at 1:25 pm
On Friday, the Army Corps of Engineers sent a letter to Standing Rock Sioux chairman David Archambault II, saying that the Corps would close the land where Oceti Sakowin is located to "all public use" by December 5. Thousands of people, including families with children, are currently living there. The camps currently have a school, a donations center, an industrial-sized kitchen, a media team, a legal team, and a unit of medics and healers.


Colonel John W. Henderson wants Standing Rock Sioux chairman David Archambault II, to move activists to a "free speech zone" south of the Cannonball River.


Standing Rock Chairman David Archambault II said in a public statement released yesterday. "The best way to protect people during the winter, and reduce the risk of conflict between water protectors and militarized police, is to deny the easement for the Oahe crossing, and deny it now."


gsgs comment-

The injustice started when the Army Corps of Engineers decided to tell lies in the court of law.


The injustice continued when racism entered the picture.


Break a treaty, because the powerful, influential energy interests had already broken the will of independent individuals when they ran over them, roughshod.

They ran into a wall of united wealthy white individuals that have economic importance to a region.

They want a straight line.

The talk about making a dog leg to accommodate as if needs was bullshit.
No one is buying it.
3.8 billion dollars behind the push.

Betrayal by the FBI.

Betrayal now, with the Army Corps of Engineers.

Powerful interests stand against the citizens of America.


The militarized police mis- used riot control weapons, and vehicles to wage war on people without weapons.

The proof is in the physical damage of human flesh.

Next, is the death of human beings, at the hands of American Military.

War, declared against Americans, by our own Amercan Military.

Four dead in Ohio, was a blunder.

This is deliberate and at the behest of people who are not part of our government.

American blood to pay for the profit of a private corporation.

That oil is not to benefit Americans.

It is to be sold to other countries, to make obscene profits, at our expense.

What is horrible, is that a company with a bad reputation for abuses and neglect is merging with the energy company responsible for pushin through the Dakota Pipeline.

It is guaranteed that the same damage to the environment and health will happen., after the pipeline is completed.

Now that pro Business Trump is completing Repubican control, there is not much hope for any help after the pipeline is completed.

Legalese and holes big enough to drive a semi truck through, will.make regulations into a joke.

As it is, victims of pipe leak accidents fought useless battles.

They were left with worthless land,health issues, and economic loss. Homes that took generations to build up.

Gone, with a pipe leak.

I suppose that thousands of supporters joining the protest camps made a difference.

Temporary halt to the pipeline.

All the people that Trump wishes he had supporting him, are supporting the protesters.
People with good hearts and loving intentions help the protesters.

Army Corps Denies Easement and Blocks the Dakota Access Pipeline
As thousands of veterans descended on Standing Rock, the Army Corps announced the $3.7 billion project won't proceed


Army Corps of Engineers has denied the easement needed to complete the Dakota Access Pipeline, according Colonel Henderson, who notified Veterans for Standing Rock co-organizer Michael A. Wood Jr on 4 December 2016

gsgs comment-

There is mention of discussion of alternative routes for the pipeline to continue.
What happened to President Obama's alternative route discussion?

Today, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced that it will not be granting the easement to cross Lake Oahe for the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline," the tribe said in a statement. "Instead, the Corps will be undertaking an environmental impact statement to look at possible alternative routes."


December 5, 2016 was the date set for forced evacuation.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The Latest on the Dakota Access pipeline (all times local):


A North Dakota sheriff says law enforcement will not clear out the large Dakota Access protest encampment in southern North Dakota, reiterating what law enforcement authorities have said for days.

Cass County Sheriff Paul Laney said that authorities are asking the protesters to be peaceful and prayerful. He also asked that they honor the federal government's wish for them to clear off of federal land by Monday, as well as the governor's order to evacuate for safety reasons.

Laney, however, said authorities won't be "moving on that camp" on Monday or "in the future."

Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier says that "having aggression toward law enforcement ... is not gonna solve this problem."

The protesters have camped on federal land for several months over the four-state, $3.8 billion pipeline and say they don't intend to move.

http://bismarcktribune.com/news/stat...659d9b64f.html

Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier, who for months has used the department’s Facebook page as a means of spouting propaganda – often posting photos accusing people of crimes without any respect for due process – took the page down for almost a week

December 1, 2016

There was widespread speculation that the Facebook page, which disappeared the day after Thanksgiving, had been hacked. County officials, however, pushed back against that rumor, clarifying that the Sheriff’s Office had taken the page down after intense and overwhelming negative attention.

Then as suddenly as it had disappeared, on Wednesday night it reappeared. The department explained that the page had been “temporarily unpublished” because the department was “unable to keep up with activity on it.”

“To all of our loyal followers we say thank you for sticking with us through this unfortunate situation,” the post read.

The cognitive dissonance revealed by calling thousands of people coming together to peacefully protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline is a startling commentary on the mentality of these simple order takers.

But there is much more to the story than Kirchmeier and the Morton County Sheriff’s Office want the public to be aware of. The department actually scrubbed its Facebook page of dozens of incriminating photos that they had posted during its absence – most likely in response to a federal civil rights lawsuit filed on Monday.

Prior to removing the photos, which had been posted since August, the Sheriff’s Office had repeatedly claimed that the photos revealed proof of crimes perpetrated by water protectors.


http://thefreethoughtproject.com/she...ook-page-dapl/

http://www.indianz.com/News/2016/12/...acebook-of.asp

The Veterans Stand For Standing Rock group began organizing the large deployment before the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced that it was closing public land to Oceti Sakowin, the largest #NoDAPL site. The December 5 deadline opens up hundreds and perhaps even thousands to prosecution and persecution by county and state authorities.

Probably. It would take a General with more balls than MacArthur to oppose Pres. Trump. Not sure we have any strong enough.

Maybe if 100,000 vets and Indians marched in Washington, and pissed on the White House fence that might get the press to cover it?

That is why it will take Vets doing it to make an impact. Not even Fox would have the guts to do the same to Vets that they easily did with "Hippies".

Arrest made in connection to videotaped threats to Dakota Access Pipeline protesters

Dec 8, 2016

The police chief and police officers at the Dakota Pipeline have not been sympathetic towards the Water Protecters.

The first incident is a clear example of how little they cared about legality.

They parked their police vehicle nearby and watched, while private guards and pipeline workers attacked and beat the mother and her son.

They workers had just ripped sacred sites to shreds.
They had scattered and buried evidence to the point of non existence.

It was a set up. The workers antagonized the Protecters.
The rip in the fence was all too convenient.
The mother fell into the trap.
And the police were there, waiting for it to happen.

So brave of the hired sadists, to attack unarmed people.

/end sarcasm sequence

The police force was all too glad to harm, hurt, and to cause suffering.
One of the police officer's buddies caused a horse to die.
The forces that punished the Protecters were sadistic and hateful.


Thanks to the Yam in Chief, racists are feeling encouraged to act out.
This ugly tradition did not end in 1965.


Fifty years of trying to create a space for everyone to feel safe, happy, and hopeful.


But, the rot has not stopped rotting.

Then, again, we have instant evidence.

The cellphone was not grabbed, and the video was not erased.

Jesse Dean McLain, 33, Bismarck, has been arrested on two counts of terrorizing, both Class C felonies.

The charges stem from a confrontation at the Ramada Inn, where two masked men approached a vehicle blocked from driving away from the scene. A live video of the altercation that has been viewed almost 1.4 million times was posted at 4:22 p.m. Monday to the Facebook page of Dean Dedman Jr., also known on social media as Shiye Bidziil. Dedman, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe in South Dakota, confirmed to the Herald the video was shot by him.

The masked man tells Dedman “take your protesting a---- back home.”

"Us North Dakota people are going to f--- you up," the masked man yells in the video before making other threats.

"You threaten our law enforcement. You threaten our people."

"You going to stop harassing people around here,” the camouflage-wearing man said.

gsgs comment-

The two bullies in masks should look in the mirror.

Protesting unfair treatment, the loss of sacred sites, and the threat to the only home they have, is not harrassing. The protesters were not threatening. They endured injuries, and stayed peaceful.

The two vehicles on the scene, a 2014 Chevy Silverado and a 2006 Chevy cargo van, are presently registered to two other Bismarck residents, and the license plates were exposed for bystanders to film.

Thursday night, similar behavior continued. Three indigenous people driving near the reservation were confronted, harassed, and dangerously chased by a large pickup truck and masked men in snowmobiles. They also filmed it on Facebook Live. On multiple occasions the white men in the pickup truck and snowmobiles attempted to cut them off, and the chase at times neared 100 mph on dangerously icy and snow covered roads.


These indigenous men who were confronted Thursday could’ve easily crashed and died as a result of that dangerous confrontation, and their names would’ve become etched in stone like the martyrs of racial violence from another era.
