Thank you for supporting frontline independent media.

Tuesday, September 13 — Multiple lockdowns are taking place at two Dakota Access Pipeline construction sites. All work has stopped. While a surveillance plane and helicopter circle overhead, police on the ground have blocked all road access to both sites.

Approximately 100 riot police have come to at least one site, armed with assault rifles and less-lethal weapons. Around 20 people have just been arrested at the site of the #NoDAPL lockdown, including medics and two Unicorn Riot journalists. As arrests are under way, Facebook is censoring our live video stream.

So they’re pointing at everyone with cameras saying, he’s going, she’s going…So, it seems like they’re targeting media for arrest. We might be getting arrested here…” — Unicorn Riot journalist, via live video stream, just before being arrested while covering #NoDAPL action in North Dakota.

UPDATE: We are currently attempting to contact our ground team and get them released from police custody ASAP. Thank you for supporting frontline independent media.
