Standing Rock success!
This is what dedicated, committed activists can do to fight the power of Big Money. Not only did they demonstrate and endure privation but abuse from the corporation and State authorities.The arrival of 3000 veterans who pledged to stand between the protestors and the eviction squads added to the significance of what is going on there. And it wasn't until the media finally starting reporting it that it generated the necessary worldwide attention it deserved. So the Army Corp of Engineers said today that they will not approve the easement to cross the disputed lake and will require an environmental impact statement to explore alternative routes. The power of the people can, and did, defeat big money! The return of lessons learned in Selma.
