    This is a 25 minute excerpt from a livecam that Shailene Woodley posted . I add some commentary at the end. Part of that is a compassionate voice for the police stuck in the middle of this. I truly believe many of them would rather have another assignment. Towards the end of this clip we hear Shailene saying, "We should be praying or singing". I voice my total agreement with her. This stand-off is between people in offices and human beings, the Created of the Creator protecting Creation, our inheritance. Not the ones on the ground attending to their unpleasant assignments.

    Pray for all of the humans involved in this. Water is life and is meant for us all. Police included. Their hearts need our prayers too.

    This video provides a good look at one of the Standing Rock encampments. Taken from an overhead drone.

    A quick video showing the food tent area. No view of the inside. I was wondering if I would see Mary Beth there.

    While speaking to Christine Anderson on skype yesterday, we decided to record our conversation. Christine added some graphics at the beginning and has released it as a show on her You Tube site.

    Christine of Earth Emapths is joined by Radagast of Global Mission of Peace in an impromptu recording. Mary Beth, a Grandmother from GMOP who has joined the Earth keepers at Standing Rock, North Dakota is reporting to Radagast with a boots on the ground perspective.

    Amy Goodman and Democracy now are a good example of what real liberal media is. And it's obviously very different from the mainstream swill that gets labeled liberal.

    If you want to know what actual liberals believe go to Daily Kos or listen to Public Radio International. Even NPR, which is regularly characterized as liberal is actually much more mainstream. My Dad's been listening to NPR in recent years, much to my brother's dismay. (They're both lifelong conservatives).

    Thumbs Down Multi-media journalists face jail time after reporting on North Dakota pipeline protest



    Source: TechCrunch


    Investigative reporter and co-founder of Democracy Now!, Amy Goodman, is now facing riot charges in the state of North Dakota after her report on a Native American-led pipeline protest there went viral on Facebook.

    Democracy Now! issued a statement about the new charges against Goodman late Saturday.

    The news organization, which spun out of WBAI-FM, creates programming which is syndicated via radio, podcasts, cable television, public access television, live streams and Web downloads.

    Goodman’s story, posted to Facebook on September 4th, has been viewed more than 14 million times on the social media platform, Democracy Now! said, and was picked up by mainstream media outlets and networks including CBS, NBC, NPR, CNN, MSNBC and The Huffington Post (a site owned by TechCrunch’s parent company Verizon).

    Additionally, documentary filmmaker Deia Schlosberg, is facing felony and conspiracy charges that could carry a 45-year sentence for filming at the protest, IndieWire reports.

    Edward Snowden noted Schlosberg’s predicament on Friday with a tweet that said, “This reporter is being prosecuted for covering the North Dakota oil protests. For reference, I face a mere 30 years.”




    Documentary filmmaker Deia Schlosberg faces up to 45 years in prison for covering the Dakota pipeline protest


    Authorities released Schlosberg, who also runs a production studio called Pale Blue Dot Media, after originally detaining her but they confiscated her footage and refused to release it according to public tweets from Josh Fox, a fellow filmmaker.

    For those unfamiliar with the pipeline protests, the Standing Rock Sioux are seeking to halt the construction of a $3.8 billion pipeline saying its development will encroach on their tribal burial sites and taint their water supply at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.

    The demonstrations in North Dakota have been ongoing for months. Native American advocates and environmentalists have protested the pipeline’s development in other cities and states, as well.

    On October 10th, witnesses at a rally in Reno, Nevada captured footage of a pickup truck plowing into a group of activists protesting the pipeline’s development, and calling for Columbus Day to be changed to Indigenous Peoples’ Day in their state.

    Several posted their footage and thoughts about the apparent attack on Facebook as well. The Reno incident injured five and sent one to the hospital. The rally was organized by the American Indian Movement of Northern Nevada (AIMNN).

    It remains to be seen whether the charges against Goodman, Schlosberg and other journalists covering the Standing Rock protests against the Dakota Access pipeline will stick.

    But these cases highlight the increasing power, and risks, associated with online distribution for news stories covered by independents, and earlier missed by mainstream networks. Virality and independence, it seems, can attract prosecutorial ire.
