Protectors of Water at DAPL Facing New Levels of Brutality

Protectors of Water at DAIt appears that the chain of suffering continues for the water protectors at DAPL. Unfortunately, the actions taken by forces of the law seem to be getting more and more brutal.

“The Morton County Sheriff’s Department’s illegal use of force against the water protectors has been escalating. It is only a matter of luck that no one has been killed. This must stop.”

Water Protectors Trying to Survive

Enough is enough. Water protectors are taking actions against their oppressors.

Kyle Kirchmeier, sheriff of Morton County along with other agencies of law enforcement are now receiving law suits.

Why? Mostly, for the events during November 20.

This all is a result of the excessive force that the police used against the peaceful protesters.

This class action-lawsuit implies the police to put a stop to the use of all sorts of ammunition.

And so from now on no more grenades, no more hoses, water cannons, rubber bullets and other dangerous means used for harming the people’s safety.

“Water cannons. Rubber bullets. Mace. Flash grenades. It’s an army vs. unarmed people who only want to protect their water and graves”

As a result, the lawsuit aims to deny all these police agencies the power to use such weapons against the water protectors.

Overall, the Water Protector Legal Collective (WPLC) formed the lawsuit on behalf of the people who received injuries on the DAPL protest camps.

More Protectors As Victims

Following the protests, there have been many victims. Jade Kalikolehua Okalani Wool is just one of these protectors.

She ended up in hospital for injuries to her head after two flash grenades exploded near her.

Then, there was David Demo, a cameraman which the police blasted with a water cannon. He then ended up at the hospital for reconstructive surgery after receiving a shot to the hand.

One of these protectors even received a shot to the head.  Israel Hoagland ended up needing 17 staples to patch up the wound. These are just a few victims we can mention among the DAPL protest.

All we have to do now is wait for the judge to whether approve or not the lawsuit.

Navajo Nation member from Arizona Vanessa Dundon described vivid images of how protectors have been trying to remove barricades enforced by the police.

The main reason was to prevent opponents of the pipeline from joining the camps and the Standing Rock Sioux reservations.

But the response of the police was harsh. She also mentioned:

“I did not have time to move to avoid being hit by the [tear gas] canister,” she said. “I instinctively closed my eyes and was struck in the right eye by the canister…My eye was bleeding so much that I could not see and I was worried my eyeball was hanging out.”

On Monday, WPLC lawyer Rachel Lederman stated:

“The civil rights violations that night were deliberate and punitive. The Morton County Sheriff’s Department’s illegal use of force against the water protectors has been escalating. It is only a matter of luck that no one has been killed. This must stop.”

Will The Pipeline Construction Stop?

It’s been a while since water protectors have tried to stop the pipe’s construction. But the construction of the 1,170-mile-long oil pipeline has not stopped since April.

What is interesting is the fact that the WPLC ordered the lawsuit the same day the protectors received expulsion threats:

We also know that governor Jack Dalrymple is the one who asked for the immediate evacuation of the DAPL camps and blamed it all on cold weather.

“[T]he most dangerous thing we can do is force well-situated campers from their shelters and into the cold. “If the true concern is for public safety than the Governor should clear the blockade and the county law enforcement should cease all use of flash grenades, high-pressure water cannons in freezing temperatures, dog kennels for temporary human jails, and any harmful weaponry against human beings. “

What more is there to say? How long will the water protectors stand a chance against the law forces and when will these violent movements end?
