North Dakota Police Arrests Protestants During a strike at Dakota Access Pipeline, Facebook Censors the Video

North Dakota Police Arrests Protestants During a strike at Dakota Access PipelineAccording to ANTIMEDIA, the release of new information regarding the Dakota Access Pipeline has been in vogue these days.

It seems as if the North Dakota issue is beginning to get out of hand. During recent events involving the Dakota Access Pipeline construction site, both the law enforcement members’ and protestants’ actions have begged to differ.

In order to regain control over the situation, Jack Dalrymple, governor of North Dakota called in the state’s National Guard to enforce militarized law throughout the entire site.

In order to put an end to further Native American protests which appear to have blocked the entire construction field (tying themselves to the machines), special forces who arrived at the scene began taking measures.

Geared up with what appear to be automatic weapons, the military enforcement’s did perform a series of arrests.

Their pursuit of breaking the party of the opposition who refused to leave the field did culminate with the arrest of twenty people. Despite the mass arrest which took place at the first site of the pipeline construction, unfortunately for the special forces, it continued elsewhere.

Furthermore, based on a recent press release made by Unicorn Riot outlet, a number of about twenty “water protesters” did get arrested after having automatic weapons pointed at them.

Among these people, medics and even two of the reporting men from Unicorn Riot got taken in by the militarized forces. Despite the police’s warnings to evacuate the area, the fear of being arrested did not seem as much of an issue for the “water protesters.”

By continuing to disregard all warnings, for the protesters, the only method of expressing their disapproval proved to be locking themselves to the construction equipment.

Although Unicorn Riot members did manage to offer live insight of the events taking place at the North Dakota scene, on the other hand, Facebook ended up censoring their link. As a result, the official link livestream.com no longer grants access to more information.

Moreover, Facebook even received more comments in which people complained about how the video could not be shared. The image below is proof that attests to the fact that Facebook is, in fact, responsible for blocking the content of the video.

Unicorn Riot staff, in an e-mail sent to Anti-Media, had this to say about the events from this Tuesday, confirming that Facebook censored their video link using its “automated censorship system”:

“At a critical moment of our coverage of a Dakota Access Pipeline direct action today, Facebook’s automated censorship system blocked our video URL, shortly before two of our journalists were arrested onsite.

As we started to cover today’s direct action, our collective members immediately noticed that the full Livestream event URL (https://livestream.com/unicornriot/events/6340986) was being blocked from Facebook.

Posts and comments with the URL both immediately triggered popup security alerts. We tried putting the same URL through Bitly shortening and that official Unicorn Riot page post was deleted by Facebook within a few minutes. Finally, we went with sharing our ‘Live Channel’ URL on our own website which had the embed included on it.

“We also verified that the ‘Facebook Debugger’ warned that our live video URL violated ‘community standards.’ Both Facebook and law enforcement acted to block our media distribution today, but we will not let them stop our mission to amplify the voices of people who might otherwise go unheard, and broadcast the stories that might otherwise go untold.

“Also, as one member of the collective, I should point out it is obviously concerning when a large media conglomerate blocks URLs to competing video platforms.”

Unicorn Riot reported a supposed surveillance plane flying around the area.
In order to gain further comments, Anti-Media branched out to Morton County Sheriff’s Department, and will publish their response as soon as they receive one.
