Hi Kevin
Have you seen the livestreams from Standing Rock in the last few days? The are heartbreaking! Militarized police with humvees and Border Patrol helicopters chasing down brave indigenous water protectors, slashing their tipis and driving them into the snow.
We’re seeing the full weight of a militarized state come down on behalf of the big banks and the oil industry. 
This week Unicorn Riot, a nonprofit media agency covering NoDAPL, had to pull back far from the camp to continue their livestream, as law enforcement began targeting those documenting their actions. They filmed a native livestreamer screaming “You broke my hip!” as four officers knocked him to the ground and piled on top of him.
Horrifying, don’t you think?
Why does abusive law enforcement target those with the cameras first? Because, without media coverage, they’d be able to get away with anything. KPFA journalist Amy Goodman, who was arrested early on in the DAPL fight, tells the story of how the Klan twice bombed Pacific Radio tower to try to shut them down in their first year of operations. The first target of the enemies of free people is always the free press.
The #NoDAPL journalists are on the front lines of press freedom – and many have been arrested and abused by law enforcement who’d rather they stop their coverage.
Don’t you want CNN, CBS, NBC, the New York Times, and the Washington Post to recognize their brave work to cover the atrocities committed against indigenous water protectors?
Are you ready to help the press to remain free to expose government corruption and abuse of water protectors?
The list of abuses against journalists at Standing Rock documented here will shock you.
