The shocking images of the National Guard destroying tepees and sweat lodges and arresting elders this week remind us that the battle over the Dakota Access Pipeline is part of the longest-running drama in American history — the United States Army versus Native Americans. In the past, it’s almost always ended horribly, and nothing we can do now will erase a history of massacres, stolen land and broken treaties. But this time, it can end differently.

    • It is a quandary isn’t it? Pipeline, truck, train – they all have the potential to spill and create a bad situation. When you look at the map of pipelines that already exist in the USA it’s overwhelming! There is no doubt that it’s a challenge and the only way to tackle it is with the majority of people united on the key topics which, today, they’re not.
