State authorities keep arresting native peoples who oppose the intrusion on their sacred land. But their message of defiance must be heard, for all our sakes
These indigenous leaders are just a few of the thousands of water protectors who know first-hand the toxic legacy of fossil fuel extraction and exploitation. They are forging a new path that integrates the latest in clean energy innovation with indigenous wisdom that cares for community, protects the land and looks toward the wellbeing of our children and grandchildren.
Since when is it appropriate to attack people who are simply trying to protect their sacred land from the devastation that oil and fracking can cause it? We seem to be in an era where corporate interests far outweigh the interests and concerns of the people.
