The protest was part of an annual celebration of the regional Catholic Worker community, and volunteers from Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, Michigan and other states in the Midwest traveled to Winona to participate.

“As Catholic Workers living with the poor and marginalize, we come to this land to prevent the desecration of this land and the health of this community,” they wrote in a statement sent Sunday evening to area media outlets.

Here is the Local News article, and Photo's. This makes me so upset. The land and water is getting poisoned, the animals are getting slaughtered and that's ok. People are getting oppressed and arrested and stepped upon, and then we are called civil disobedient and labeled as terrorists. Now the level has just went up higher. Thank you.
