A few items to take note of here:

The $15 million should be going to food banks, to health care, to heat assistance, to housing to....and it's important to point that out to the people in N Dakota as this is happening. Your tax dollars are going directly to protect the profits of a private corporation instead of helping out the people. It's an easy argument to make.

Take note of the tactics and the persistence and how that is impacting the public relations and most importantly the bottom line. (...were taking their toll on local agencies. The policing costs have reached nearly $15 million. The courts are taxed. The jail is burdened. The 34 local law enforcement officers are stressed.).

This is illustrative of how the machinery of the State, even as it appears intractable, is in fact vulnerable. Think for a moment if there were companion actions of a similar nature happening in a myriad of places organized nationally on any number of issues.

Think for a moment on the issue of single payer e.g. and how it would look if mass protests occurred nationwide for an extended period of time.

Another important aspect of this is that those at Standing Rock are not asking permission- they are simply saying ENOUGH.


He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. Matt 10:37
