ST. ANTHONY, North Dakota -- The Morton County Sheriff's Office celebrated Indigenous Peoples Day by terrorizing Native Americans who are protecting the water of the Missouri River, and ancestral burial places, and arresting them.
Actress Shailene Woodley and Lakota activist Vic Camp were among 27 people arrested at the work site of Dakota Access Pipeline. Two people were arrested and charged with felonies who were locked down to machinery.
Shailene Woodley was arrested while livestreaming, as the Morton County Sheriff continues to arrest the media and livestreamers. Police arrived in armored vehicles, wearing riot gear, with police dogs, as Native Americans erected tipi poles and began their prayer.
On Sunday, the U.S. Appeals Court in Washington denied an injunction to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, which would have halted the pipeline.
