"We Are Still Standing in Standing Rock This fight isn't over,
we will continue to stand in Sacred Stone against the Dakota Access Pipeline

Ignore all the rumors and fear.
"Someone died at camp"
"they're flooding the camp" (is that "public" yet)
"the Tribe dropped its lawsuit"
"the Tribe is closing the camp"
"They're not letting anyone into camp"
The truth is about 1000 people minimum are still at camp. We are doing all we can to make
sure they're safe. They can leave on their own. I'm not doing anything but coordinating.
The medics, camp organizers and each and every person there are doing all the work,
so many people are stepping up when others are abandoning this fight. Talking about the
"front lines are in the court now."
The Standing Rock Tribal Gov. doesn't have the authority to "close" the camp.
The State of North Dakota doesn't have the authority to "close" the camp.
The worst case scenario is the Army Corp of Eng requests assistance from North Dakota
Law Enforcement to evacuate the camp
(if leaseholder says they're interfering with his rights),
or they just flood it, but that is a really really bad look for anyone.
I don't even think the Standing Rock government can legally block access to the camp
from the south without the help of North Dakota. The Tribe could request Army Corp and
the leaseholder of the land where the big camp is to start the process for evacuation
but that would be interesting how we are not willing to step up against the Republican
controlled brutality but we will step up to kick our allies out.
And, finally nobody at camp is even aware of all the rumors at the top of the post,
that's all in our online heads.
It is deadly cold out so do not hesitate to reach out or leave,
but those die hards holding strong, we are here to help.
Many thanks to all hosting families and responding to this.
People are assembling to decide their own futures here, on their own terms.
