Things are going very bad at the pipeline protest

I'm on my phone & too stupid to figure out how to link to twitter but unarmed protesters are being attacked on Sunday night in the dark when no one is watching. The handful of journos there are demanding national coverage. Water cannons in sub freezing temps. This is life threatening shit going on to protect the fossil fuel industry & investors

They were defeated on election day by those who decided to vote in such a way as to elect Trump. Don't wanna hear a word from Susan Sarandon either.

This is a real tragedy that is hardly being noticed. The media is far too worried about ratings to cover it.

He'll probably give the orders to kill those protesters, and the so-called Liberal media that doesn't exist will probably keep ignoring this tragedy at @ Standing Rock.

What does the family tree look like. Everyone of them. Remember, Flush Rush. This effort will be quieter. To some it means sell off.
