EVENT DATE Sep 16, 2016

THE STORY:

Guy Dull Knife, an elder in the Oglala Sioux tribe and a decorated veteran of two tours in Vietnam, has spent most of the last month in North Dakota, protesting the Dakota Access oil pipeline. The Standing Rock Sioux, whose tribal lands are a half-mile south of the proposed route, say the pipeline would desecrate sacred burial and prayer sites, and could leak oil into the Missouri and Cannon Ball rivers, on which the tribe relies for water. Members of more than 200 Native America tribes, supported by many local farmers and ranchers, have been gathering near Cannon Ball South Dakota since April in an effort to halt construction. On September 9th they scored a victory – if only a temporary one – when President Obama ordered a pause in construction within 20 miles of the site.

On the 15 of September, 68-year-old Guy was arrested along with his son George, and charged with disorderly conduct by state troopers during a protest outside a construction facility. He was released after posting a $250 bond. Guy continued with the protest after the incident, camping out at the site for several weeks, until he contracted pneumonia. Having rested up at home for a few days, Guy is returning to North Dakota to go to court: his first date is Tuesday September 20th.  

The expenses add up quickly: Guy can’t camp out anymore because of his health, so he has to pay for a hotel. He will need to hire a lawyer, then there’s gas, food, and so on. We are trying to raise $2,000 to cover those costs. Any donation is welcome. Please help: his fight is our fight. We will provide updates as this story continues to unfold.
