CANNON BALL, North Dakota -- Collapsing into pre-Civil Rights Era attacks on Native Americans and journalists, the State of North Dakota issued an arrest warrant for Amy Goodman, executive producer of Democracy Now! and arrested Cody Hall, Lakota spokesperson for the Red Warrior Camp at Standing Rock Camp.

North Dakota has refused to charge or arrest the dog handlers whose vicious dogs attacked Native Americans and supporters, as they defended Native American burial places being bulldozed by Dakota Access pipeline on Sept. 3, in violation of federal law.

The Morton County Sheriff’s office has protected from prosecution pipeline workers and security guards with attack dogs. The Sheriff’s office has issued a steady stream of lies about the Standing Rock Camp, aimed at inciting violence toward them. These lies, of violence and weapons, were carried by major media outlets, including The Associated Press. This resulted in the North Dakota governor calling out the National Guard to man a roadblock near the camp where thousands are defending the water of the Missouri River from the pipeline, and ancestral graves from bulldozers.

Ocheti Sakowin Camp Human Rights Observers issued a statement today urging intervention by the United Nations, after Native Americans and supporters were attacked with dogs, and pepper sprayed, and journalists were charged.
