For Those trying to call BREAKING NEWS:

Due to the volume of calls from human rights defenders like you, the Morton County Sheriff Office has turned off their phone. If you can’t get through over the phone, please leave a comment on their Facebook Page

a suggested script although your own words are best......this is an idea

Hi, my name is [insert name here] and I live in [insert location]. I am a supporter of Amnesty International USA. I am calling to urge you to respect the human rights of Indigenous people and all others gathered near Standing Rock in opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline.

The U.S. government is obligated under international law to respect, protect, and fulfill the human rights of Indigenous people, including the rights to freedom of expression and assembly. It is the legitimate right of people to peacefully express their opinion. Public assemblies should not be considered as the “enemy”.

REPLY TO THE FB MESSAGE: from Morton County Sheriff Office

Due to the large volume of messages, responses may be extremely delayed. Please follow our page for information regarding the pipeline. We will not be responding to private messages here regarding that situation. Thank you for your cooperation.

THIS IS GOOD "due to a large volume of messages" MEANS PEOPLE ARE CONTACTING THEM.

I just got in this email and put it's content here for whatever it's worth - maybe some of you can fwd it or call the Morton County Sheriff's office:

"Eleonora, last night the Morton County Sheriff's office put Standing Rock water protectors in grave danger. Hundreds were injured, including an elder who went into cardiac arrest and several people treated for rubber bullet injuries to the face. They used projectiles that ripped through people's muscle tissue (warning: graphic photos).

Police fired water cannons at the protectors for at least six hours in below freezing temperatures, exposing them all to hypothermia. Medical professionals at the camp called for a cessation of this tactic because of the real threat that people could die. And Morton County law enforcement just kept drenching water protectors in water, tear gassing them, firing concussion grenades and using sonic weapons against them.

This is inhumane! They are willing to directly threaten people's lives in order to protect profits for the oil industry. Enough is enough.

Call the Morton County Sheriff's office and demand they end these life-threatening attacks on peaceful unarmed protectors immediately! Here is the number and a sample script:

Morton County Sheriff's office number:
701-328-8118 & 701-667-3330

Hello, my name is ___________. I am horrified by the violence used by your officers against the Standing Rock water protectors last night. It is nothing short of torture to douse people in water, in below freezing temperatures, for hours. People could die from this inhumane escalation. Your officers are willing to risk killing peaceful protectors. It's time to end these dangerous tactics and torture against the people at Standing Rock.

Morton County law enforcement is already claiming that they were putting out fires started by the protectors, but several livestream feeds, including the one we followed all last night, show that the fires were started by Morton County officers and their tear gas and concussion grenades. Do not let them get away with telling this lie!

Every level of government needs to hear from the people loud and clear that we will not stand for the torture of peacefully gathered water protectors, all in the name of oil money.

If you have more time, we need you to make two more phone calls--To the Army Corp of Engineers and the Department of Justice. Click this link to view the phone numbers and scripts for each agency, as well as report back on your calls.

These agencies have the power to stop all of this. We need to light up the phone lines of every official who is allowing law enforcement to torture people who are fighting to maintain clean drinking water and preserve their sacred sites. We cannot sit idly by while people are brutalized like this.

Keep fighting,
Irna Landrum, Daily Kos

Just FYI: I didn't hyperlink "They used projectiles that ripped through people's muscle tissue (warning: graphic photos)." as the link is meantime disabled ... I assume because of the nature of the pictures. Aren't we always told that rubber coated bullets are "harmless"?!

I had called - no reply.
This is not the norm for most protest as in the
case of Oregon, when anti-Trump protesters
ripped-up Portland and no one was arrested.
This goes much deeper, possibly cause a Texas
billionaire, Kelcy Warren owner of "Energy Transfer"
is behind the pipeline project. Protests have also
occured outside his Dallas building.

Thank you Eleonora for the link and I'm glad you brought it up. A simple thing to do and I had done so earlier myself. I've been seeing horrible photos of what rubber bullets are doing and maybe death doesn't occur but there are broken jaws, an eye could be lost, people are having their head split open concussion is possible perhaps brain injury.

I posted where a 21 year old woman is having her arm amputated due to a rubber bullet Water Protector May Need Amputation of Arm These guns with the bullets are being fired upon the people at close range also as one video I viewed said, they are also aiming for people fingers especially towards the "medics" when they are trying to help an injured person.

You are correct Patricia, the right wingers were standing on land that the Corporate wasn't interested in at that time, these people are standing in the way of this billionaire and some others, including from what I'm understanding the Gov of the State who will make money. They don't care about human life they already most likely have a prejudice on Native people, from the comments I've seen Kelcy make it clearly shows, so they just figure mow them down, out of the way, so these Greedy Heartless Ones can make money.

Dandelion - who knows ... he might be "overwhelmed" by this outcry and change his "corporate" mind and become human again for a moment? I think it would be a great ending for his more than mediocre performance over the last almost 8 years! I so wish it for the people who are fighting for their lives!!
