Taking a STAND with Standing Rock...#NoDAPL
Cannonball, North Dakota - In a monumental encampment gathering of protestors against further development of a pipeline project popularly known as the "Dakota Access Pipeline," scheduled to join them are a group of over 2,000 US Veterans."THE VETERAN'S WILL SERVE AS A "NON-THREATENING" HUMAN SHIELD, READY TO TAKE RUBBER BULLETS, HIGH PRESSURE WATER CANNONS, PEPPER SPRAY, TEAR GAS, SONAR DEVICES, AND ANY OTHER TYPE OF CROWD SUPPRESSION TECHNIQUES THE POLICE HAVE BEEN USING..."
D ecember 4th through the 7th, the Oceti Sakowin (Sacred Stone) Camp, as it has been called, will be joined by over 2,000 US Veterans in reaction to the violence and illegal practices inflicted upon the gathering of peaceful protestors, or "Water Protectors," as they are called. Earlier in November, protestor Sophia Wilansky was directly hit in the arm by a concussion grenade thrown by a Morton County Sheriff's Deputy. As a result, she may lose her left arm. This is only one example of the many atrocities that are being committed by public servants against the very citizens they each swore an oath to protect. Up until just recently, there has been virtually no mainstream media coverage. Forced by the tremendous social media support by protestors; the media is now starting to arrive.
In an effort to create awareness and help to curb the violence, Wes Clark, Jr., a veteran and former Baltimore Police Officer is organizing a group of US Veterans to travel to Oceti Sakowin to become a barrier separating the Water Protectors from the heavily armed-militarized Police Force. The Veteran's will serve as a "non-threatening" human shield, ready to take rubber bullets, high pressure water cannons, pepper spray, tear gas, sonar devices, and any other type of crowd suppression techniques the police have been using - all very questionable indeed as to the legality and right to use such techniques on a non-violent gathering.
Nu Vizhn's Founder and CEO Jovanii Nez, also a four time war Veteran who served in the US Marines, will be personally departing today to join his Vice President Zhooniya Ogitchida, at Section 8 Security at the camp. Nez, will be supporting the command council by donation his time and skills with Aerial Video and Ground Reporting via Social Media.
Zhooniya Ogitchida, a 10 year and two time war veteran, served in Afghanistan in the United States Army. Ogitchida set the pace and raised the bar in respect, as he solely faced the intimidating scene of an army of police personnel. He spoke to them without fear and with honor down to his final and forever lasting statement, when Ogitchida conveyed to the police force that he was ashamed of their actions and how he has served this country to protect it's citizens from all enemies both foreign and domestic - their reply was "thank you for your service," in an epic response Ogitchida replied back, "I wish I can say the same."
