Take a moment to be open and honest, to express yourself. To laugh, to love, to be happy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was at work yesterday and a friend notified me we might run out of gas and I just said ‘ok’. He replied by asking me if I was stressed. I said, ‘no. If we run out of gas we run out of gas.’ That is the reality. It is the present. Us being out of gas is in the future. Right now we are here driving still moving. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ So many things we stress about in our days needlessly. Worrying about this or that. All the while there are beautiful flowers and trees or people or magnificent buildings around you. Always something to be in awe of to be in love with. Be present there. When someone asks you how you are like a shop clerk take a moment to say ‘I’m good. How are you?’ Genuinely and in a non robotic way that isn’t only trying to move on to our wants and needs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Take a moment to laugh to smile. Be present here. Be free. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ #OGV#Thegoodvibemovement#Befreemyfriends#Onesmile#onepositiveinteraction#love#peace#joy#connecting#oneness#Awareness#evolution#evolving#comingtogether#helpingeachother#allinthistogether#Lifeisbetterwithyou#community#happiness#hiNSA#facialrecognitionsoftware#theyseeme
An increasingly #militarizedpolice and the use of new tactics, like #facialrecognitionsoftware and “informational stops” by fully armed #NationalGuardsmen are being used against “ #Protectors” while fear and animosity are stirred up by resistance to the #DakotaAccessPipeline.
Greg Grey Cloud of the Crow Creek Tribe in #SouthDakota has issued a warrant for alleged participation in the September 3 confrontation between #DAPL security and their attack dogs.
Mr. Grey Cloud has been issued the warrant by North Dakota bureau of Criminal Investigation based on #surveillancevideo footage and “ #recognized” by facial-recognition technology. But here’s the thing, during the September 3 action Greg Grey Cloud was in Rosebud at a family barbecue.
Mr.Grey Cloud is a veteran activist. In 2014, he was arrested and charged with disrupting congress after #GreyCloud started singing a traditional Lakota honor song after the Senate voted down legislation pushing #KeystoneXL pipeline through without review by the federal government.
The subsequent charges against Grey Cloud were dropped.
Various camps have reported that they have been under constant surveillance from helicopters and airplanes. According to the “protectors”, these aircraft follow them during actions carried out by the pipeline.
North Dakota law enforcement have claimed no knowledge of who is paying for such aircraft but acknowledges that the aircraft are part of the North Dakota Highway Patrol and have air-to-air communications with said aircraft.
Though, oddly enough, both Morton County spokesman Rob Keller and Sgt Tom Iverson said the aircraft are not directed by law enforcement.
The roadblock that had detoured drivers around the protectors’ camp is now downgraded to an “Information stop” by fully armed National Guardsmen whom stopping cars and question motorists for their reason for traveling.
According to Tom Goldtooth, executive director of the Indigenous Environmental Network, He believes that law enforcement is creating a database using the information gathered at the “informational checkpoints.” ✋🏾More in comments👇🏾 #PoliceState
