ONE OF THE WHITECLAY 5 SPEAK OUT
By: Dana Lone Hill
The goal of Deep Green Resistance (DGR) is to deprive the rich of their ability to steal from the poor and the powerful of their ability to destroy the planet. This will require defending and rebuilding just and sustainable human communities nestled inside repaired and restored land bases.
DGR became involved in Whiteclay with the first protest back in May. They decided to stand with the Lakota activists against Whiteclay because that is what they (Lakota) wanted to do. They support and follow and put their bodies on the line while the Indigenous lead.
T.R. believes there will be as many times as it takes to shut down White Clay. The campaign is far from over, and growing everyday. Alliances are being built. Allies join weekly.
They locked themselves together on August 26th, 2012 in specially designed lockboxes that would make the Sheriff’s department deal with them one way or another. They wanted to see if the Sheridan County Sheriff’s Department would actually deal with white people surrounded by Lakota allies. Maybe then the people of so-called Nebraska and the so-called United States would listen. Especially when the Lakota have been screaming at the top of their lungs for decades about White Clay and nothing was ever done. DGR aims to change that.
