Standing Rock: Dallas Goldtooth on Suspicious Fire Near Resistance Camp & Repression of Movement | Democracy Now!

hootsuite.com_2016-10-23_16-46-53.png– Overnight on Saturday in North Dakota, Native Americans resisting the $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline reported a brush fire near their main resistance camp. They say they called 911, but no emergency teams responded. They also say the surveillance planes and helicopters, which have been flying almost constantly over the region in recent weeks, stopped flying about two hours before the fire began. Protectors believe the fire was intentionally lit by people working for Dakota Access. For more, we speak with Dallas Goldtooth, organizer with the Indigenous Environmental Network.
