💧 DIRECT-ACTION USED IN WISCONSIN: Today some black snake killers successfully shut down Line 3 in Wisconsin! This pipeline is a continuation of Line 3 which is being advertised in MN as replacing existing pipeline structures but they are digging this new route and destroying Ojibwe lands and it's being placed parallel to the old structure. Peaceful and non-violent direct action is once again being used and activists are willing to risk their lives to halt this greed. No arrests during this incident.

[A few days ago one of my photos, "Higher Ground", was featured in a French cultural magazine name NOTO. One of our friends on this page was kind enough to translate the article into english. The article is centered around the photo, and what took place out in North Dakota, helping continue the dialog across oceans, and around the world. If interested, you can read the translated article below] A Clash The Venom of Anger (This is a direct reference to the book “Grapes of Wrath” as French title translation is “Les raisins de la colère” and the author titled this article in French “Le venin de la colère” (sounds pretty close any French person would get that ref.) Our collective imagination resonates in our reactions to particular news photos. What made them powerful and present? What is the architecture of an image? In October 2016, Native American tribes defending their land against an oil industry opposed their ancestor’s spirits, tipis, souls and nature protection to tanks. Behind contemporary representation, ancient codes arise. “Les Mohicans… “ Excerpt from the book “The Last of the Mohicans” by John Fenimore Cooper (did not translate this part) At the end of 2016, the citizens of the Native Americans reserve “Standing Rock” in North Dakota, were protesting against a pipeline project that would carry oil from the north of the State to Illinois and the rest of the US. The risk for the environment, for the springs and lakes of the reserve –one of the biggest in the country- appeared to be major. Even though the environmental threat was evident and the demand of people of Lakota origins – the Sioux people- were echoing decades long battles fought against the exploitation of American soil, this Dakota battle soon became symbolic referring to greater American history. Requested by the reserve’s authorities such as its Chairman, the charismatic David Archambault, President Obama halted the pipeline construction. Donald Trump authorized the construction conducted by American army engineers to resume only a few days after his election. The Dakota Access Pipeline was considered as a priority by the new administration. This revived mobilization against the Black Snake –as Native Americans nicknamed it. Environmental activists from all States, anti-Trump activists, and other Native American tribes rallied to the site to help. The resistance craftily used contemporary resources, creating a very active Facebook page. This movement was also able –with a perfect sense of drama- to relate and refer to the Native American culture portrayed by literature, pictures, and movies since the 19th century. The photograph taken by Ryan Vizzions, the artist name of an independent photographer from Atlanta that the citizen of the reserve has also nicknamed “Redhawk” (maybe for his sharp & piercing eye), witnesses with force and beauty face to face between inhabitants of the reserve and the military workers. The clean snowy landscape of Dakota’s beautiful land is a remarkable stage to the scene, exalting the light, enhancing the contrast between the shapes and the colors. The snow is like a preserved space, a sanctuary, and any advance from the engineers – we can feel it- will be a violation, an unforgivable step staining forever the snowy carpet. Vizzions’ picture translates the indignation of the reserve inhabitants much better than any world would. Showing plain contempt for almost 2 hundred years old agreements that had given to Native Americans rights on the soil they inhabited for millineries before Europeans’ arrival, the engineers entered the reserve to build the pipeline. This transgression is a profanation. The symbolic battle between the perceived engineers’ black, powerful and deadly mechanic and the ancestral, airy, light, elegant, still robust in their historical and cultural legitimacy tipis makes the battle sensible. No matter the administrative decision, those assaulting this virginal mount are occupants. The power they deploy looks not only over the top but illegitimate as well. In setting the elegant tents of their ancestors at the top of the mount, the activists are reminding people how much this territory was and stays theirs, thus negating authorities any right to act on a decision they see as unjust. This unjust decision is also sacrilege. The color and material of the engineers’ machinery evoke the pipe that will cross the water, and land that the inhabitants are furiously defending. This for nature and water’s sake as well as by respect to the traditional Sioux prophecy stating that “if the Black Snake comes across our land our world will end...” The composition of the picture taken at Standing Rock implicitly recalls other sieges between powerful intruders and brave activists. The tipis’ arrangement at the top of the mount evokes a rounded up city that citizens are determined to defend up to the end, the symbol of their freedom and identity. The American photograph has formally used painting codes and carefully chosen the picture’s angle. The typology constitutes a natural physical barrier, as it was for example in the Alésia siege in 52 before our era or, closer to us, at the Rivoli battle in 1797. He uses an elevation where the camp/tents increase the symbolic significance. The engineers seem to be more determined to conquer a position, to invade those who camp than to open the passage for the pipeline, as if the goal was now to plant a new flag – which in American territory?- would dominate the tipis. We then recall over battles such as the Elbrouz battle in 1942, or the Mount Iwo Jima assault in 1945. Vizzions skillfully, and with tacit references suggests a bigger combat; not only the battle for clean water and land’s respect but also a battle for space where the most ancient American culture-the Native American Culture- would be sovereign. The contrast between a deadly machinery and colorful fabric, between military efficiency and the poetical magic of sacred rite that is implied by Vizzions, brings the idea of the non-equal battle between the mighty and the poor, the powerful and the weak, the mercantile imperialism and environment’s protection. Right away his picture gives the heart of the audience to Standing Rock people in siding this audience with those opposing song’ rhythms and sacred dances to arms and war machinery. The soul stays at the top of the mount where a sacred breeze lightly moves the airy fabric of the Native American tent. A breeze similar to the wind in the trees and the clean water of a protected environment, a wind that also growls with ancestors’ memory, old ghosts’ presence reminding their victimhood inflicted by a conquering power that almost erased their people in the mid-1900s.

NRDC and its allies sued the Trump Administration today for illegally approving a cross-border permit for the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

Trump Administration broke the law by arbitrarily approving the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline," said Anthony Swift, director of NRDC's Canada Project.

it ignored public calls to update and correct a required environmental impact statement that should have led to one conclusion: Piping some of the dirtiest oil on the planet through America's heartland would put at grave risk our land, water and climate. We're asking the court to put an end to Keystone XL once and for all."

Water Protector Legal Collective

This morning in Morton County water protectors had felony Reckless Endangerment lockdown charges dismissed! The prosecution admitted that it was not prepared for trial despite having nearly six months to investigate, gather evidence, and find witnesses who could establish that any crime occurred.

As of today no water protectors have been found guilty of felony charges, no water protectors have been sentenced to spend time in jail, and over 30 water protectors have had misdemeanor charges dismissed for lack of evidence.

Oil may be flowing under Lake Oahe, but the arc of the moral universe still bends toward justice. Water protectors are winning the fight against the head of the black snake in the courts, and this movement has inspired so many to continue this fight elsewhere. These are still sacred times.

"The LA Deptartment of Water and Power refuses to allow us to fix a broken pipe which provides us our allowed allotment of irrigation water.
