EVICTION… EVEN IF BY FORCE!
Today is a disgusting day in United States history. Once again we prove there’s nothing big business and the government will not do to walk all over the rights of our Native population. On this day, at 2:00 PM, the water protectors at Standing Rock in North Dakota will be evicted from their protest camp – by force if necessary.
This all comes from an executive order written by North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum. The order ironically cites environmental destruction as one of the various reasons why he’s disbanding the Sioux Tribe Camp.
“Whereas, months of accumulated debris, including human waste generated by the populations that have occupied the aforementioned areas of Morton and Sioux Counties pose a significant and increasing environmental threat to the water of Missouri River…”
You can read the full executive order here:
Sadly, those who choose to stay after the 2 PM deadline will not only face being taken off the camp by force but face charges as well. Even the medics who’s life is taking care of those in need of services will be put in handcuffs and dragged away.
FIGHT BACK RIGHT NOW!
If you live in North Dakota you need to either show up and stand with the tribe or take a visit to the Governor’s office and protest!

If you’re a lawyer in North Dakota and can get there (either the protest land or the police departments) be there and ready to help in any way you can. The water protectors will need you on the scene to help them as they navigate the system if they are arrested.
For anyone showing up please have your phones charged and ready to record as much action as you can. It’s important to show the world if there is violent treatment from the police!
JAM THE PHONE AND FAX LINE!
For those of you who aren’t in the area, we need to be on the phone jamming the Governor’s line! To do this we need to get both his phone line and his fax going. Don’t let this man’s office get anything else done today except hearing our collective voices!
