Lakota warriors and Deep Green Resistance call for support on the Great Plains

13 Dec

Activists and warriors have launched a drive for funds and supplies to sustain their ongoing organizing and resistance in the Great Plains region. The following message is from their online drive:

“In 2011 we met and  began working together in a good way. Members of Deep Green Resistance and Lakota warriors and activists joined together to fight on the Great Plains. In 2012 we joined with others to fight against the liquid genocide of White Clay NE, temporarily shutting it down three times. We are fighting and organizing against the Keystone XL pipline. We must protect our sacred water. We joined together in solidarity with Lakota elder Vern Traversie against the racist abuse of Rapid City Regional Hospital. The KKK has reared its ugly head in the sacred black hills and we must stand and fight against them in 2013. We cannot do this work without material support. Besides material support we need bodies willing to join us on the frontlines. Please help us continue fighting in 2013.”

For more information click here or email deepgreenresistancegreatplains@riseup.net

People can also relay this message via Facebook.

    The title of this is misleading. All the money raised on that indiegogo page goes directly into the personal, private bank account of a non Indian man. It doesn’t even go to an organization and it sure doesn’t go to Indians. There is no transparency. It all goes in his pocket and he tells different stories about where the money supposedly will go. He is fooling you. There are no Indians on the council of Deep green resistance. It’s a group of white people. They just want to use Indians for their own egos. They’ve found a couple Indians to do their little tour with them, but that’s not who has the power, it’s the white men.
