Neil Young writes lengthy Facebook statement on Standing Rock protests, Thanksgiving and Trump

 


Neil Young has posted a lengthy statement to his official Facebook page that covers subjects ranging from President-elect Donald Trump to the ongoing protests against the controversial construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline in the US.

The Canadian-born 71-year-old took to his social media page earlier today (November 28) to share his thoughts on a number of the issues facing the US at the moment, which he prefaced by talking about the “fictional” history of Thanksgiving.

“It is now widely understood this Thanksgiving story is a fictional history. It was invented to whitewash the vicious genocide wrought upon the native inhabitants of this magnificent continent. Not only did the Europeans try to eradicate native populations, but they made every effort to eviscerate their culture, their language and eliminate them from these coveted lands.”
