Trump Regime Targets Water Protectors in Camp Eviction

February 2, 2017 by Barbara With

Seventy-six water protectors were arrested yesterday near the confluence of the Cannonball and Missouri Rivers when they refused to leave the newly established Last Child camp. Last Child Camp moved across the road from Oceti Sakowin, which is being vacated due to the high potential for spring flooding.

Chase Iron Eyes was among those arrested on Wednesday. According to TYT Politics Reporter Jordan Chariton, Iron Eyes is being targeted as a “ringleader” and was told by police that he will be held responsible for the actions of all others at the camp.

In the video below taken by Steven Jeffrey Chrisjohn just before the arrests and the eviction of the camp, Iron Eyes said, “It’s our birthright to determine our own destiny, to seek a life of dignity, and to be free from legal, economic and political oppression which is being perpetrated by the United States, by the State of North Dakota, by the institutions of finance and extraction and the  military-prison-industrial-complex over and against not only Native Nations but all American citizens.”
