Dakota Oil Access Pipeline?


Recommended Posts

I read that 22 people were arrested but I couldn't find if none of them were Native Americans or not.     The warrant for a journalist is odd but consistent with what was done in Oregon and Nevada in the Bundy case (were the trail of these wackos started this week).     In that case a right wing talk show host was arrested but charges latter dropped.    

 

But the reports say that there were no cops there when Stein and Goodman were present - which is why warrants have been issued and they haven't actually been arrested.

 

When were the 22 others arrested? Did that happen prior to Stein and Goodman showing up? Is it an old story? From a time when the cops were there maybe?

 

There sure were a lot of Indians there when Stein was writing on that bulldozer - and when those dogs were attacking in front of Goodman's cameras - but I haven't heard any reports about warrants being issued against Indians. Just the white people.

Here is what I found on Google.   But it doesn't say if they were Native Americans or NOT,  but does imply most of the protesters were:

 

 

Police said they arrested 22 people at the construction site of the Dakota Access oil pipeline, claiming people were interfering with equipment. The arrests were made 70 miles northwest of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe’s main protest site.

The Morton County Sheriff’s Office said about 50 law enforcement police responded to events the site near Glen Ullin Tuesday after construction workers said they had been “swarmed” by protesters and that two people had “attached” themselves to equipment.

 

The protesters face charges of criminal trespassing, and the two attached to equipment faces charges of hindering law enforcement and disorderly conduct, according to the Sheriff’s spokeswoman, Donnell Preskey, according to AP.

The site near Glen Ullin is not part of the temporary work stoppage ordered by the federal judge or the section the federal government asked Energy Transfer Partners to voluntarily stop work on last Friday.

Hundreds of people from over 200 indigenous nations have gathered in the area to support the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, which claimed in a lawsuit filed against federal regulators that the oil pipeline would harm water supplies and disturb sacred burial and cultural sites.

Sounds like the "authorities" have decided to step up their policing.

 

Perhaps the hundreds of protestors will become thousands if necessary - if the Media covers it, that is.

#OregonStandoff verdict vs. treatment of #BlackLivesMatter and #StandingRock

 

"The internet was shocked by the jury declaring those involved in the Oregon standoff were innocent while those involved in the Black Lives Matter movement are still called terrorists by the right-wingers who stand with the Bundy family’s occupation of government lands. Others online were simply disgusted that those protesting on Native lands at Standing Rock are being carted away in police vans while the Budy family and their allies are walking free....

Yes, this is just shocking.    All law breakers must be punished equally under the law.   The concept of equal treatment under the law is a foundation of our legal system.

 

To be fair to the government,  it isn't their fault that the jury didn't find the criminal Bundy family guilty.   But the government is at fault for letting the Bundy family get away with crime after crime and taking way too long to finally doing something about it.

 

As for the Standing Rock protest;  The courts have ruled,  the protester \ Indians have loss,  and therefore the protesters can't violate private property rights.

It would be nice if the government/business interests would honor their treaties with Native Americans for once.  If the Bundy group can get off, even though they had weapons, how about the peaceful protesters in North Dakota?  Why couldn't this pipeline been rerouted?

What will happen if and when this thing gets built and the inevitable leak happens and water gets contaminated?

Do you have any evidence that what is going on in North Dakota relates to NOT honoring a treaty with Native Americans?

 

It is my understanding the land being used is private, non Native American land,  that was sold to the company by a rancher  (based on L.A. Times story)  

 

The land in question is next to Native American land and that could be an issue for Native Americans.    The government does need to ensure that no damage is done to this adjacent Native land by the pipeline.

 I don't have any evidence in this particular instance; it just seems to me that Native Americans always get the short end of the stick.  Big Oil gets to do whatever they want and whenever there is a leak or an accident of some sort, humans, water, animals, plants and land all suffer and all they say is basically "oops."

In this case Big Oil had to get permission and the Army Core of Engineers approved the deal.    The Native Americans as well as environmental groups took the company to court and the court ruled that the pipeline could proceed.    The Obama Admin is still blocking one section of the pipeline but the area in questions was given the go-ahead. 

 

My point is that the legal process has to be followed by ALL in these type of cases.   ALL.  

 

The Bundy's also sued and loss but decided to NOT follow the court's order and took over government property.    They should have been jailed for their crimes.     The Native Americans also sued and loss and instead of accepting the court's decision decided to occupy private land to prevent the pipeline from moving forward. 

 

While I'm way more sympathetic to cause of the Native Americans I can't support violation of property rights and denying of court orders on a selective basis.

Even if Obama could stop the Pipeline it would only be temporary because Trump could and likely would just restart it.

 

Sorry but this is a done deal.

Hundreds of Veterans To Protest DAPL Pipeline and Police Brutality-

 

"Most civilians who’ve never served in a uniform are gutless worms who’ve never been in a fight in their life,” Wes Clark Jr. declares. “So if we don’t stop it, who will?”

 

Clark Jr. is one of the most vociferous opponents of the Dakota Access Pipeline, a controversial 1,170-mile project that, if and when it is completed, will shuttle an estimated 470,000 barrels of crude oil every day from North Dakota to Illinois. “It’s immoral, and wrong, and dangerous to us all,” Clark Jr. adds.....
