US Army to evict Dakota Access Pipeline protestors next week

On December 5th, the United States Army will remove the protesters from their current site on the north side of the Cannonball River to a “free speech zone” on the other side. In the face of forcible eviction, Standing Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault II urges the resistance to remain strong. “It is both unfortunate and ironic that this announcement comes the day after this country celebrates Thanksgiving – a historic exchange of goodwill between Native Americans and the first immigrants from Europe,” said Archambault. “Although the news is saddening, it is not at all surprising given the last 500 years of the treatment of our people. We have suffered much, but we still have hope that the president will act on his commitment to close the chapter of broken promises to our people and especially our children.”
