Broken Promises

World  (tags: broken promises, Dave Archambault Ii, broken treaties, Standing Rock, serial offenses, enough is enough, no DAPL, Great Sioux Nation )

- 687 days ago -
We live with so many broken promises there is no reason for it said Dave Archambault II the chairman of the tribe. We understand what lands we own and what lands were illegally taken from us. Treaties broken over and over before the ink dried.

Enough is indeed more than enough and should be no more--sad DAPL is mirroring the broken promises of the article related to burial disturbances, et al, by not honoring the related terms of their contract as if it were a one way unilateral contract they control 100%. Thanks for posting Dandelion.

We have [redacted] the Native Americans/First Nations peoples so often and so badly, the next act of {redacted] could bring some terrible karma down upon the United States. Maybe Donald T. Rump is the catalyst of this karma--

Please read before you send anything to Standing Rock, share and make calls
Heres one source, and call your shipper to get the update whats happening with their supplies sent to North #FossilFree603NH
November 25 at 7:52pm ·
Amazon says the police are blocking deliveries to #StandingRock addresses. Many who want to purchase supplies on the Amazon list, can't.
Some want to purchase a full body armor. We need new addresses or another way to send supplies.
This is the address we tried to use:
Sacred Stone Camp, P0 Box 1011, Fort Yates, ND 58538, (701) 301-2238.
Will you call Amazon (1-888-280-4331) now and tell them they should not be taking a political position on this issue, especially during the busy holiday season! If they are not, we'd like a list of the suppliers we cannot use so that we may make purchases for #StandingRock. Will you help? ♡

sickening what has been done to a nation of Peaceful people and is still happening as we speak.

“It's like a perpetrator committing a crime on an innocent individual,” Archambault told ABC News. “If you do it once, you should be stopped; if you do it again, you should be stopped; if you’re not, you become a serial perpetrator time and time and time again, and today we are saying, 'No, don’t put this pipeline here, enough is enough,'” he said.

Noted. Thanks, Dandelion.
I agree that 'enough was enough' a long time ago! This should be the final line in the sand and it should not be crossed. .....still wondering where Obama is.....

Arild I believe the Native people have always understood how the Palestinians felt and some of their closer friends and allies- but for others I suppose it is a wake up call.

However, as this is still not being widely shown over here nor discussed there are still many who slumber.

Absolutely agree, Dandelion and Arild. Wasn't there a time when the cry "Never again" was reverberating throughout the world?! It seems it still doesn't apply to all people on this earth.

America had so many wake-up calls in recent months - the killing of Afro Americans, the election fraud at the DNC, the Pres elections, Standing Rock ... how much does it take for them to finally wake up and start defending their people - ALL people in America! - and their rights?

very sad situation. I have little hope that Trump will do squat for Native Americans, or ANYONE who stands in the way of corporate $$$$. In another month....we will find out.

Trump or Obama, Gloria, neither the Democratic nor the Republicans are protecting the people of this Nation. We don't have to wait, crap has been happening for years under both Administrations. Most Democrats still deny or slumber what Bill Clinton did that has hurt this Nation and most Republicans do the same thing with Reagan and Bush. Until people start digging into their Party they are so loyal about and willing to examine it fully, warts and all, we'll never get out from under this mess.

Isn't it amazing, Dandelion, that most people prefer to be blind on the "party eye"? This is why I was all my life independent ;-). For many decades US Governments under either party rule have always pandered to the needs of the corporatists and militarists; the ones of the people and especially the Native Indians have never really been a top priority. If it ever was one ...

Treaty after treaty has been broken with each and every tribe. You would think the US government would be embarrassed to admit that they have NEVER kept and treaty with Native Americans. People need to be educated about both the history of betrayal and also what poor conditions many Native Americans live in to this day.

Anyone can sign a treaty. The part about keeping the treaty seems to elude out governments. So many times over and over again with more to come under trump. They have come to prove they have no intentions of keeping any treaty even at time of signing. Wonder if they use invisible ink and deny treaty ever was signed.

What a sad state of affairs. It's hard to believe that this can happen in the 21st century.

Lies all the way
At least give Trump a chance before berating him I think you are right perhaps he is the same but do t decide guilty without a trial
Something has to be done this suffering of Native Americans can not go on.
I think if Trump had any brain he would do something as he would gain a lot of respect

Native Americans are taught as history-- Americans need to recognize them as current allies, long mistreated.
