Sample Script:

On November 20th, water cannons, tear gas, rubber bullets, and percussion grenades were used against water protectors trapped on a bridge on Highway 1806, just north of the main camp. This happened after dark in below freezing temperatures. People had seizures, an elder went into cardiac arrest, and multiple people were hospitalized with severe head wounds. At least 167 people were injured.

Militarized police are defending illegal action on the part of oil companies. They haven’t completed environmental impact studies, 380 sacred and cultural sites along the pipeline have been destroyed, and they are currently drilling without a permit.

Please stop these treaty violations and human rights abuses. The DAPL, which would cross unceded Indigenous territory, is a direct violation of the sovereign rights and culture of the Standing Rock Sioux.

There is no room in a civil society to firehose, tear gas, or use rubber bullets on peaceful, unarmed water protectors. The United States federal and local governments, as well as the oil companies, need to be held accountable.

Read this excellent article, which validates that the struggle for indigenous rights is important in its own right: “Every Indigenous child born is a victory against colonialism, but we are all born into a fight for our very existence. We need that to be named and centered, which is a courtesy we are rarely afforded.” People around the world should be in solidarity with Standing Rock because indigenous lives matter, not because “this affects us all.”

If you need to, educate yourself even more – read the #StandingRockSyllabus; What is the Dakota Access Pipeline? What’s so wrong with oil pipelines?
