Apartheid Makers -- Silencing Dissent, Spy Towers and Obsession with a Palestinian Flag at Standing Rock

Apartheid Makers -- Silencing Dissent, Spy Towers and Obsession with a Palestinian Flag at Standing Rock

By Brenda Norrell

Forty-three U.S. Senators want to make it a felony to boycott Israel, and support Palestine. Meanwhile, MuckRock reveals that unlicensed TigerSwan mercenaries stalked Palestinians at Standing Rock camps. Public relations firms hired by Dakota Access Pipeline -- and their web of select media -- were particularly obsessed over a Palestinian flag at Standing Rock.
This comes as Israeli Apartheid contractor Elbit Systems is ready to build spy towers on Tohono O'odham Nation land, where there are O'odham burial places.

Love Letter: Warriors and The Word: Censored News hits 17 Million

By Brenda Norrell
Censored News

In a couple of days, Censored News will cross the 17 million mark for pageviews. We did it with no funding. For 11 years, since the time I was censored and blacklisted out of the mainstream, the Word has prevailed.
The Word is actually the words of many. These are the words of the Good Hearts. They are the words, images and sounds of the writers, photographers, video producers and radio producers who have given freely of the work that springs from their hearts, the work that the Spirit tells them to carry forward.
They are the magic makers of Censored News. They are our translators in France and Belgium; they are the ones who give us a place to sleep; they are the ones who make us laugh and they are the ones who  inspire us to fight another day.
They are the Warriors, the Lovers of Mankind and the Earth, and it has been an honor to continue this Word.
For all the TigerSwans that come and go, there remains The Uncensored Word.
Thanks to our enemies who have made us stronger, and thanks to the Spirit of Truth that is alive and gives us The Uncensored Word.

EAGLE BUTTE, South Dakota -- Joye Braun, Cheyenne River Lakota, was one of the first to camp at Sacred Stone Camp and call for water protectors to come to defend the Missouri River from Dakota Access Pipeline. She was there when the first teepees went up. Joye stayed as the camps grew to thousands of water protectors, and as the attacks intensified. 

"I see this movement as giving the youths a lot of hope," Joye says.

Listen as Joye describes how the Cheyenne River created a camp for the water protectors, as the camps were leveled at Standing Rock in February 2017.

Speaking with Spirit Resistance Radio at Wakpa Waste Camp in Eagle Butte, Joye describes the arsenic in the water in South Dakota and the recent successful halt to the drilling of a bore hole for a potential uranium waste dump.

There is now a Man Camp going up within a mile of Cheyenne River Lakota land, near a children's school. Joye describes the threat to the women and children, as these men are brought in for construction on the Keystone XL.

Already at the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation, Fort Berthold, North Dakota, there are missing women, homicides and sex crimes because of the oil field Man Camps.

Joye describes how Water Protector Camps are being created throughout the land, from the Coast of Louisiana and Flint to Montana and beyond. The actions and resistance continues in the Northwest.

As the resistance mounts to drilling, fracking and pipelines, Joye describes how this oil that is damaging the land, and threatening the water sources, is for private corporations and for export. The ongoing destruction targets private land, and family farms, whose lands are being seized for private pipelines.

Joye says there are many ways of being of service, from doing research to babysitting and more. She says not everyone can be in camp.

Listen to her interview with Govinda at Spirit Resistance Radio.

From The Vortex -- A Song for the Water -- Mni Wiconi


A Song for the Water, in Beauty and Peace, as the Resistance to Keystone XL Grows

EAGLE BUTTE, South Dakota -- Willis, Lakota traditional singer, says the songs can bring people up to the power of beauty.
"Don't let anyone ruin your day, think of a song, think of something that makes you happy."
Willis said this camp of water protectors here is referred to as "The Vortex."
Speaking with Spirit Resistance Radio, at the Wakpa Waste powwow grounds, Willis said, "We like to keep our camp traditional. We try to apply some of the traditional justice laws that we had a long time ago, to today's laws."
When people try to agitate, people are given three chances, he said. "If they don't want to stop, that's when they have to leave."
Willis loves singing traditional songs and he loves this land, and the water.
Willis, from Cherry Creek, South Dakota said the Keystone XL Pipeline will go about 20 miles from his home, where the pipeline route targets this land.
Willis remembers defending the water at Standing Rock, and how his grandmother and young daughter had dreams of what would happen to the water protectors.
"My grandma knew how bad it was going to be."
She knew they would be shooting rubber bullets at the Water Protectors at Standing Rock.
His young daughter dreamed of him getting shot.
Willis was there when they sicced the dogs on them.
"It wasn't suppose to be a race thing."
"It was supposed to be about water for everybody."
If they contaminate the water, it will effect 18 million people. "Without water, we wouldn't have life, we wouldn't be here," he said.
His grandma came after him at Standing Rock camp -- more than once. She said, "It is going to be bad, I don't want my grandkids to be here."
"She said if I got shot, she doesn't know what she would do."
Now at Wakpa Waste Camp, where water protectors came when the water protector camps were leveled at Standing Rock, Willis speaks out for peace, beauty and the water.
"We're still going to keep it peaceful."
"I'm still in the fight. I feel like this is where I have to be."
Remembering the aerial surveillance of water protectors at Standing Rock, he said even now at Wakpa Waste Camp at Eagle Butte on Cheyenne River Lakota land, the same drones that were at Standing Rock continue.
Water protectors are preparing to battle the Keystone XL Pipeline, which targets the Ogallala Aquifer. 
"They say they are arming themselves with real bullets this time."
"Stay in Peace," says Willis.
Listen to Willis sing Mni Wiconi.
"That's the song that first came to us. We took that up there, to the people," Willis said.
A Time for Healing
Spirit Resistance Radio hears from a water protector now at Eagle Butte in a second interview.
During this time of transition, people are healing at Wakpa Waste Camp, Josephine said. They are also working in the community to help the Cheyenne River Lakota community.
The mercenaries are in the pipeline Man Camps and the helicopter of Dakota Access Pipeline is above -- the yellow DAPL helicopter that was overhead at Standing Rock -- has been overhead.
"The Man Camps bring alcohol, drugs, all kinds of things."
Josephine urges the people to be humble, be united, and work together to protect Mother Earth and Future Generations.
"Get the fear out of your hearts."
"Remember prayer, unity and love."
It is the U.S. government that is protecting the corporations.
But the water protectors showed them they were not afraid.
Josephine remembers when they were hit with water cannons and pelted with projectiles in the subzero night as they defended their water source, the Missouri River, from the Dakota Access Pipeline.
"We showed them that we would still stand up."
"Show no fear."
"Remember Creator is watching over us."

EAGLE BUTTE, South Dakota -- Chris, Dineh from Flagstaff, Arizona, says Water Protectors are ready to rush forward and resist the Keystone XL Pipeline.
"It's another head of the snake we're going up against," Chris told Spirit Resistance Radio.
Keystone XL Pipeline would carry crude oil from Alberta, Canada, to the Gulf Coast, and endanger the drinking water of millions in the heart of this land. It would pass through the Ogallala Aquifer.
Chris said the pipelines bring with them the Man Camps, with private security moving in for the pipeline.
Urging the people to pray and go through the bruises, and being broken down, he said it will make you into a warrior.
"Pray, find the courage, and do what your heart tells you."
No matter how scary it is, keep going.
"Go for it head on."
"Once you go through it, you might be bloody, bruised, broken, but you'll heal."
"You've got to break yourself down to make yourself into a Warrior."
Speaking from the Cheyenne River Sioux homeland, and Wakpa Waste Camp, which was created when Water Protector Camps were leveled at Standing Rock, Chris said,"You'll always have a home here."
