My heart is in my stomach. They’re getting closer. The police, Morton Co. Sheriff’s Department and Highway Patrol made another move and refuse to see their actions as accomplices in this fight of people over large corporations and Big Oil. They’re willing puppets in the destruction of liberties and civil rights. We Stand because this is all we have left. We’ve given more than enough. We’ve endured enough. If it was your people who endured being hunted down, your men, women, children, babies, and elders hunted for scalps, than you would understand. If it was your babies thrown in the air and shot by US soldiers, you would understand. If it was your people who were caught fleeing, unarmed, and mass murdered and left in the snow for days, and buried in a mass grave, than you’d understand. If it was your people who endured starvation periods of hoping your oppressor would grow a heart and see your hungry babies, than you’d understand. If it was your people’s children forcibly removed from your home to sever the connection of language and culture, to force assimilation, only to send home broken souls if any at all. If it was your women who were raped by cops and goons and force sterilized, than you’d understand. If it was your ways that were outlawed and you was jailed for praying, than you’d understand. If it was your temples, towers, pyramids, Stonehenge, churches, or synagogues that was being desecrated and bulldozed to make the rich richer, than you’d understand. We have nowhere else to go. This is our home. This is our last stand. This is about our family, history, future and present. You have so much already. United State’s wealth is built on the natural resources of indigenous peoples! Those are our lands tilled, our earth reaped, our effigies cleared for farmland, our timber, our minerals. We need the world to ACT NOW! Enough of the world watching because I cannot see people watch while our children’s futures are pushed aside for corporations. We need world actions. Sanction the United States!
