On the August 31, 2016 radio show World Talk with Friends, we were joined by Twodog. His message compelled us to action. The following information discusses a movement that may just bring solidarity to the planet in unanticipated ways. Please, it is critical that we come together now and over this situation. It may be the line in the sand. Are you ready to take as stand if only to say a prayer, send a flag or donate?

This Portland Press Herald August 31, 2016 article provides a history of the movement: Native Americans protest Dakota Access oil pipeline
The BBC News is the primary source, apparently, for information on this United States protest movement (telling in itself): August 16, 2016
BBC News, 1 September 2016
Since April, over 3000 Native American people have been camping in Cannon Ball, North Dakota. They are trying to stop the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, which would run underneath the Missouri river near the Cheyenne river reservation.
It's the biggest gathering of tribes in more than 100 years. The movement is becoming more than a protest. People in the camp say it is a way to reconnect with their identity, pride and heritage after a long history of abuse and segregation.
