Mandan, N. Dakota – According to a video released on Tuesday, which is going viral on social media, a call to action was made nationally and internationally for those experienced in civil disobedience and non-violence direct action to go to Standing Rock for a month long action beginning on Monday, October 17. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, the Scared Rock Camp and other water protectors encampments in the area have yet to confirm the anticipated month long civil disobedience call to action at DAPL front lines. The black snake will be killed (stopped), according to the Mark K. Tilsen from South Dakota who sent out the message on his Facebook account and a video production by Benalex Dupris, edited by Cosy Lucich.
Morton County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) estimated that between 2,000 to 3,000 water protectors (protesters) are currently located in multiple camps associated the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe NoDAPL movement.
So far, the MCSO has generated more than $61,500 in fines resulting from arrests and bonds posted by water protectors and journalists since August with more than 123 arrests.
By the Labor Day weekend, Dennis Banks, founder of the American Indian Movement (AIM) during an interview with TelesurTV confirmed that at least 10,000 people including over 300 Native American tribes had gathered at the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe (Secred Rock Camp) in solidarity.
