IGD: Police Move to Evict Standing Rock

Police and sheriffs have moved into the main Standing Rock camp and carried out a series of violent arrests. Police have attempted to push the small amount of water protectors, veterans standing in support, and independent media out of the area and claim they will carry out a ‘clean-up’ of the camp which will include bringing in bulldozers, and push forward construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Police have also embedded mainstream corporate media like ABC in with them, while arresting livestreamers and non-corporate press.

Unicorn Riot has set up both livestreams and is putting out numerous updates from Standing Rock. We will continue to update this page as more information comes in.
