Sojourner Truth Radio: 2,000 Veterans and Activists Stand With Standing Rock
3 days ago
The water protectors at Standing Rock held strong for months, standing in opposition of the Dakota Access Pipeline, a project that would cut right through the lands of Indigenous people, with the possibility of contaminating their water and land, as well as desecrating sacred sites. They have been met with violence from law enforcement: tear gas, rubber bullets, water cannons in freezing temperatures and more. They have been arrested and beaten. Now, more than 2,000 veterans and activists have flooded to Standing Rock to strengthen the peaceful protest.
On Monday night, December 5th, the veterans took part in a forgiveness ceremony " acknowledging the U.S. military's part in violating the rights of Indigenous people throughout history.
Today, we bring you a special, one-hour interview with two of the people who are standing with Standing Rock as part of this massive coalition of veterans: Michael A. Wood Jr., one of the organizers of the Veterans contingent; and J.C. Faulk, an African American activist out of Baltimore, who is going to Standing Rock in support. We spoke with them the day before they left for North Dakota.
