New Haven resident, PSL member and native leader Norm Clement, who has just returned from Standing Rock, will report on the heroic struggle by the Sioux and other Indigenous nations to defend their land and water against the ongoing theft and corporate exploitation. Thousands of Native activists from some 200 different nations have joined together in North Dakota to resist the construction of an oil pipeline through their land. Entry Transfer Partners' $3.7 billion pipeline threatens to cut through Native burial grounds and the Missouri River, the source of many communities' water. The governor has called in the National Guard and private security who harassed and attacked the peaceful protesters.
