Dakota Access Pipeline Company Attacks Native American Protesters with Dogs & Pepper Spray


Criminals! You guys are criminals! Go get your money
somewhere else. We’re standing at the construction
site of the Dakota Access Pipeline. It looks like there are at least three
bulldozers that are, to people’s surprise, at this moment, actually bulldozing the
land. There’s a helicopter above, there’s security here and hundreds of people have
been marching up when they heard that the construction site is actually active right now.
My name is Jacob, Jacob Johns. And where are you from?
I’m from Spokane, Washington. I’m Hopi and Akimel O’Odham.
And can you describe what you see, what they’re doing? They are, they’re bulldozing, they’re
bulldozing preparing to put install a pipeline to go into the river.
And above, we see a helicopter. The helicopter itself has been following us and
taking pictures, and we’re filming them in return. C’mon guys, we gotta stop this! People have gone through the fence – men,
women and children – the bulldozers are still going, and they’re yelling at the
men in hard hats. One man in a hard hat threw one of the protesters down. And they’re marching over the dirt mounds. Some of the security have dogs. The six bulldozers are pulling back
right now, people are marching forward in their tracks. There are men, women and
children. More security trucks are pulling up. There are some pulling up.
There are some protesters on horseback. Security has some kind of gas,
people are being pepper-sprayed. We’re not leaving! We’re not leaving!
We’re not leaving! We’re not leaving! Sir, reporter from New York. What are you
spraying people with? I haven’t sprayed anything, ma’am.
But what is that? Yeah, you just maced me in the face right now.
Amy Goodman, this guy maced me in the face. Why don’t – can you show us the label?
Look, it’s all over my sunglasses. He just maced me in the face. A dog bit him, right now.
These f-ers throw the dog on me. Let me see, let me see. Over there, with that dog. I was, like, walking, throwed it over me straight even without any
warning, you know? Look at this. Look at this. Yeah, that did it, you know? Look at this. It’s there. Ma’am, your dog just bit this protester. Are you telling the dogs to bite the protesters?
The dog has blood in its nose and its mouth.
It is still standing here threatening. You can’t put your [blame] on the dog, you’re an evil woman!
You can’t put your blame on the f-ing dog. These people are just, were threatening all of us with these dogs. And she, that woman over there, she was charging him and it bit somebody
right in the face and then it charged at me, it tried to bite me, and she’s still,
they’re still threatening this dog against us And we’re not doing anything. Why are you letting their – her dog go after the protesters? It’s covered in blood. Stop the woman! Get your f-ing dogs out of here! Get your f-ing dogs out of here! Get the f- out! Get out! We ain’t scared of you! Get the f- back!
Get the f- out of here! After the protesters said that the dog
was bloody from biting them, they then pull the dogs away, and now pickup truck
by pickup truck is pulling away. We’ll see what happens. The protesters are moving
in to ensure that the security leaves. Let’s go check on this woman. What
happened?
Ah, just a lot of mace, and the sweat was running, uh, dripping it in, it
was the sweat was making it run down into my eyes. I had my glasses on and
that spared me the brunt of it but then the sweat started putting it in.
How are you doing?
I’m great. What’s your name? Reyna Crow.
And what do you think you’ve accomplished today? I hope we’ve accomplished letting Enbridge
know that the people of this nation and the people of this world, tribal or
otherwise, have withdrawn their social license to pollute water, and that they
need to find an honest non-violent way to make a living.
Where are you from?
Duluth, Minnesota. Idle no more, Duluth! I got maced twice, I got bit by a dog I was [at the] front line. Where did you get bit?
I got bit on the ankle over my booties, so I told him they needed
to leave, but the the guy didn’t believe me, so he don’t want to listen. He, uh, stuck his hand out,
and he maced me, this other guy, and I think he maced a lady, too. Then, they tried getting the dogs on us.
I was just standing there, I wasn’t really doing nothing. That dog ran up on me and it bit my – around my
ankle. You pushed them back, though?
Yes. Why is this such an important fight to you? Because, water is life. Like I said, without
water we all wouldn’t be here, these plants wouldn’t be here, there’d be no
oxygen, we’d all die without it. I wish they’d open their eyes and have a heart to
realize you know if this happens, we’re not going to be the only ones that’s gonna suffer, they’re gonna suffer too. What tribe are you with? I’m Oglala Sioux, full blood.
From? Pine Ridge Reservation. No one owns this land! This land belongs to the earth. We’re only caretakers. We’re caretakers of
the earth.
Do you feel like you won today? We win every day when we stand in unity,
we stand and we fight. How do you feel? Feel great.
What did you accomplish today?
Protecting our water. That’s what we were here to do, and that’s what we did.
Where are your horses from? Coal Creek, South Dakota. And you came from there? Yes, ma’am.
And so, describe the scene to us. We protected our water, and we did
a good job at doing it. Thank you.
Thank you.

  • Are we sure this isn't the plot to the movie Avatar. Our lovely rich rulers doing what they always do and will continue doing. Those who rule and are in power are completely soulless. Until they are removed we will have these tragic crimes against  our planet and those creatures that occupy it.

  • it's been 2years ago this week&corporations/multiMillionaires now demand to own all clearWater & slaveLabor for greedyProfit….

  • There is no law. Here is the proof. Get those Europeno criminals while we are united and strong!!!! Let's join out Native Americans if you really want to call yourselves Americans!!!!

  • Amen Bro. I wish they would open there eyes. We aite gonna be the only ones who suffer. Get your racist googles OFF. This LAND BELONGS TO THE EARTH!! ANIMALS then US.

  • haha!  Man these Indians are stupid.  the dog is on a leash… if you don't want to get bit you just have to be smart enough to stand back the length of the leash…. no wonder they are  a dying people…..

  • This is just a friendly discussion I don't want no body getting all butt hurt.. Do the natives know that there is such thing as an alarm system on that pipe. If there was a sudden drop in pressure on that line everything would be shut off and in the next couple days a crew would be out there fixing the problem.

  • Get more dogs, cats, rattlers racoons thousands of bikers for Trump more security guys kick these clowns out. South Dakota pipeline means jobs for Americans, Stop listening to these losers MAGA losers need not apply ! Go Donald !

  • Vreselijk ! Totaal geen respect voor de oorspronkelijke bevolking ; Indianen. Trump heeft daar een hele lange pijpleiding door hun leefgebied laten aanleggen. A sociaal. Laag bij de grond. Onaanvaardbaar.

  • This gave me chills and made me cry. I'm so disgusted by my fellow humans. I don't care wtf ur job is. Get a fucking CONSCIENCE AND SOME MORALS

  • A multi million (or billion?) dollar pipeline is being constructed that will bring business and livelihood to many and these idiots have nothing better to do than protest and obstruct?! Entitled to be stupid!

  • ND and Morton County prosecutors at the least need to be disbarred and have their law degrees revoked. Tribes and friends were always in the right.

  • Such a shame that these atrocities happen against Native Americans even today. But I am not surprised, USA destroyed Iraq for no good reason other than greed.

  • Imagine that, a bunch of stupid broads with their kids and degenerate man children acting like victims…… such a strange occurrence

  • NO!
    As someone who LIVES in the state this took place in, they were VIOLENT!! They lit fires, through poop at cops, harassted passing cars. And children were left behind when they left. This was sick, violent, and awful. Dont say you support it unless you have seen the violence. People supporting the protest lack education on this. Two years and i have yet to find someone in my state that supported the protest. However everyone out of state seemed to support it. Shows how if you witness it, you have a different perspective.

  • BACK IN THE OLD DAYS THE YOUNG WARRIORS WOULD HAVE SWOOPED DOWN ON THEIR WAR PONIES AND DONE WHAT WAS NEEDED……NOW YOUNG WANNABEES SHOW UP ON BAREBACK PONIES DOING WHAT THEY THINK THE TV CAMERAS MAKES THEM LOOK GOOD AND LET THEIR WOMEN AND CHILDREN BE BRUTALISED BY MILKY,WISHY WASHY CIVILIAN COWARDS WITH A YARD DOG……..WHERE ARE YOUR HEARTS LAKOTA MEN? DON'T TELL ME ABOUT THIS STUFF……. I WAS IN A 38 YEAR OLD WAR IN N.IRELAND AND WE PROTECTED OUR WOMEN AND KIDS AND HAD A MATRIARCHAL SOCIETY JUST THE SAME……. WATCH SOME NORTHERN IRELAND VIDS FROM THE 60,S AND 70'S………SEE HOW TO DO IT RIGHT……….AND THEY HAD HEAVY BATTLEFIELD WEAPONS L1AI FAL'S 7.62 (380 ) IN AMERICAN. WHEN I WAS YOUNG I WOULD HAVE DIED BEFORE ALLOWING THESE GOONS TO DO THAT SHIT TO OUR MOTHERS AND BROTHERS……WITKO

  • I was there with the PeepeeCaca Tribe. I pretended to protest against the laying of this pipe and instead laid some pipe of my own on the stupid but somewhat attractive female protestors. It was a good time!

  • those native Americans are need automatic AK-47’s,AR-15’s ,sniper rifles,M-16’s,double barrel ,over,under pump action shotguns pre1986 ,long barrel and snobnose revolver pistols,switchblade knives,machetes to stab those horses and dogs ,smoke bombs,stink bombs ,slingshots with heavy stones to shoot dogs and horses ..they need to kick those dogs and horses in the head ..it would not animal abuse it is self defense they need to use guerrilla warfare tactics to beat those rent a pigs ..

  • the most disturbing thing obvious from this video is that people who love life and want to save it simply can't wrap a simple fact around their heads: faceless corporations have no scruples, no pangs of consciousness, no cognitive appratus to care, to be ashamed or feel anything at all. see stopfossilfuelsorg for more

  • Half the people siding with the company would have no problem with US troops gunning down Iraqi children or overthrowing sovereign states.

    An environmental group founded by "Native American"
    activist Winona LaDuke and Indigo Girls band members has been sued by a
    former employee for alleged sex discrimination and reprisal.
    The lawsuit claims Honor the Earth took no action to stop sexual harassment
    by a man “credibly accused of using his status as a spiritual leader to
    commit sexual violence against Native boys.”
    The man’s “inappropriate sexual behavior towards boys became an open secret in the White Earth Community,” the lawsuit alleges.

  • People making dogs bite the people that are perfecting there land and home made me sick how can people be so crule and sick to the people of that land

  • This is a song I wrote the music for and gave to Jani Lane. We both worked on the album cover, in 1980. It is a tattoo of the Black snake on the arm of the devil, a volcano, the Missouri River, and Sunshine for me (a Chief named me long ago when I split another's arrow with my arrow on a bull's eye target-a Boy Scout shot the first arrow, then I split his arrow at a Boy Scout jamboree in the seventies when my father was filming it…he took me along) Dog Eats Dog April 2031. Free Will can change the date, it could be sooner…

  • I don't think people are understanding why they are protesting. To simplify things, century ago America made a treaty deal to not cross sacred lands. And today they are violating that treat thus why they are protesting.

  • Water is life, there is no life without it. We don't own the land, the land owns us, we are protectors of our mother earth. 💦🌏 Brothers and sisters.. Much love from Noongar Boodja
    🖤💛❤️

  • How sad this situation barely received media attention…… we don’t even know the update of this disrespectful situation…… people of color have been going through unfair treatment for centuries……

  • Bringing dogs out like fat wet pussies. I don’t agree with everything the protestors are doing but bringing dogs out and attacking them is enough for them to be forcibly removed from the site.

  • BULLSHIT PEOPLE SHOULD KEEP GUNS N JUST SHOOT THE HELLUP TO THOSE SHITTY PEOPLES N MAN FIRST JUST WANNA SHOOT TO THE DOG HANDLERS N THAN EVEN TO THE DOGS TO I DON'T GIVE A SHIT BCOZ IF THOSE DOGS CAN BITE SO BADLY Y CAN'T I DEFENCE MYSELF SO YEAH FOR SELFDEFENCE SO WHAT IF I DO KILL THAT DOGS TOO BULLSHIT HELL YEAH IN SUPPORT OF INDEGENEOUS PEOPLES AS ME TOO AM I BELONG FROM INDEGENEOUS TRIBE FROM NORTHEASTERN PART OF INDIA
