The Truth Will Set You Free .....

The Army Corp of Engineers are not our landlords. They have no right to request that we vacate.
On Friday, Colonel John Henderson with the Army Corps’ Omaha District issued a letter to Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault II. It was an eviction notice to vacate the premises by Monday, December 5.
“Pursuant to C.F.R. 327.12, I am closing the portion of Corps-managed federal property north of the Cannon Ball River to all public use and access,” Henderson wrote. He admitted that he wrote the letter at the request of Morton County officials.
The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe states that it stands with more than 300 tribal nations in protesting the Dakota Access pipeline.
“Removal from Sioux Treaty lands should be the choice of the Oceti Sakowin Camp north of the Cannonball River, not the United States, which has been violating our rights for hundreds of years.”

National Lawyers Guild legal observers on the frontlines have confirmed that multiple people were unconscious and bleeding after being shot in the head with rubber bullets. One elder went into cardiac arrest at the front lines but medics administered CPR and were able to resuscitate him. The camp’s medical staff and facilities are overwhelmed and the local community of Cannonball has opened their school gymnasium for emergency relief.

When a government agency takes possession of privately owned property, it is called a taking. This process can be done legally through a process called eminent domain, or the government can purchase the property at a price agreed upon.
