Camp Updates and Water Protector Concerns
Update and USGS install flood gauge
Enbridge has finalized buying one third of the Dakota Access Pipeline. If you ever considered an action targeting Enbridge throughout this campaign, now is the time.
CLASS B FELONY-“maximum penalty of ten years’ imprisonment, a fine of twenty thousand dollars, or both, may be imposed.” If HB 1426 passes in the Senate tomorrow, these are the charges water protectors could be looking at. On HB 1426, HB 1193, HB 1304.
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.
