New barricades were moved within a hundred yards of he North Gate entrance to Oceti today. It was a peaceful conclusion after the police agreed to remove their arrestee wagons and hummers. After they backed off, the Water Protectors retreated and went to Winonas for hot pizza. The concern is this is a preview of encroachment by the police to implement the forced evacuation of the camp as ordered by the ND governor. Keep your eye on the social media on February 22. The portrait photos are of two of the beautiful Water Protectors.- Five photos
