veteran-by-kai-stachowiaki

Target: Michael Wood Jr., Veterans for Standing Rock Organizer

Goal: Praise the peaceful efforts of the group Veterans for Standing Rock to protect Water Protectors from alleged police intimidation.

Accusations about of intimidation and use of excess force against Water Protectors in North Dakota have been circulating for weeks. It is feared that the police force is acting in the best interests of the oil company. According to their GoFundMe page, Veterans for Standing Rock is a group that hopes to “defend the water protectors from assault and intimidation at the hands of the militarized police force and DAPL security.”

Police have been confirmed to have used water cannons in well-below-freezing temperatures, police dogs, rubber bullets, and tear gas to disperse and control demonstrators opposing the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. As of yet, there has been no third party moderation to determine if First Amendment rights are being infringed upon at the site.

Currently, over 2,100 veterans are scheduled to be traveling to Standing Rock. They have stressed that they want people to come unarmed and to peaceably assemble. The group could help draw much needed attention to this demonstration, ensuring that rights are not infringed upon.

Event organizer, Michael Wood Jr., made a video appealing for the cause and calling for conservatives, democrats, and libertarians to come together and defend constitutional rights. Sign this petition to praise Veterans for Standing Rock’s nonpartisan commitment to defending people’s right to exercise their First Amendment rights.
