Witness the Power of Love

“People from all origins and traditions that have been separated and exploited and now coming together with a vision for a more just society. The institution that is the local media, law enforcement, legislators, national guard, private mercenary; those bodies who collude to paint this as a struggle of unlawful native Americans who want to protect clean water. But this struggle is about every American life to be valued over corporate profits. All our Constitutional, Civil and Human rights on the line.” — Chase Iron Eyes to the #IraqTribunal, December 2, 2016

Daily Practice: As you celebrate the victory of a local peace economy standing up against the power of the state and winning. Find what the stand is you want to take in your own community. Witness the power of love, non-violence and a deep commitment to life. Together we grow the power of Standing Rock in our own communities.
