If you do not like what you are seeing please share it said Kevin Gilbert. Gilberts footage alone was shared hundreds of thousands of times by protesters, by news media, by the webpage of U. S. Senator Bernie Sanders racking up 3.9 million views.

Great find, Dandelion! We need to spread this news as far and wide as we can. The public needs to know the truth. I fear that our government and the police are becoming enemies of the citizenry, of human rights, of justice, of freedom.

Apart from anything else, drone & cellphone videos released are a powerful counter to all the (false) claims from the North Dakota & DAPL authorities, who can't produce ANY clear footage of the "violence", "rioting" they describe to justify their own violent responses!!!

Here's a related story posted by Judy - a different site - that somehow vanished from the visible news stories ...
please, go & note it!

And still I hear or see no outrage coming from main stream media. So who is paying them off. All I see is a Russian tsar posing as Americas next president. Who will end up crushing the brave standing rock protestors. Then he'll come for you and me. Who will speak up for us, after ignoring them. No one.

words can't describe the outrage I feel that this violence is tolerated in America!!!!!!
Now with cell phones we can better make the sleeping sheeple aware of what is really happening to our freedoms and to those who attempt to exercise their rights.
could the Holocaust, southern lynchings, etc have been prevented by modern technology?

Tom P -
WE have to stand up, because the US mainstream media have lost their way.

Ironically, foreign(anglophone) mainstream media have picked up from social media, and produced some stories (not enough, but far more than US mainstream media!) - So one way open to us is to make sure the social media is full of links to what is coming out of witnesses to the unacceptable ... because this can trigger articles in global mainstream & reach more people.

there is something very wrong about this. We have the right to protest. Police didn't do this when those ranchers took over the reserve in Oregon last year.

Ah, but Dianne ...
a) those ranchers were white supremacists
b) they were well armed, and believed to be ready to use their arms
c) There were no corporate interests affected by the protest/ take-over!

While at Standing Rock
A) It is a Native American led protest over genuine rights & environmental concerns
B) The leaders stress non-violence, no arms
c) There are big corporate interests (indeed the ND Dakota holds a stake in ETP, as does Donald Trump)

These considerations make a world of difference in the US democratic system!!

Yes, and it IS mostly white supremists, as they have existed in Britain for centuries as well. Their belief that they have perfect entitlement to take what they want, and rule over whoever they want.

Evelyn: Our leaders in DC always speak about Russia in a negative way, here is one of their Journalist I leave a quote by. She spoke of her Country I say that quote could be for USA as well.

"We live now in an era where normal values have been displaced. The good is called bad, the bad – good." Anna Politkovskaya Assassinated Russian journalist, writer and human rights activist
