#NODAPL Camps Continue to Document Mistreatment of Law Enforcement


CANNON BALL, NORTH DAKOTA —As local law enforcement defends its extreme use of force against protesters near the Dakota Access Pipeline, the camps and a representative from the United Nations permanent forum on indigenous issues continue to hear the accounts of those released from jail from Thursday’s event where more than 140 people were assaulted, arrested and mistreated by law enforcement. Leaders, journalists and those who witnessed Thursday’s account are collecting video material to share with the world of the violence carried out by law enforcement.

But as the community and families deal with another traumatic encounter for standing up for their rights and land, prayer is at the core of recovery in camps and the community.
