Personally I believe there are better ways of taking action, still though, it's good they stood up for something, the treatment they received however... errr. -_-

Cree Prophecy:
When all the trees have been cut down,
When all the animals have been hunted,
When all the waters are polluted,
When all the air is unsafe to breathe,
Only then will you discover
You cannot eat money.
