By now, most folks are aware of the constant battle between Standing Rock activists and the militarized police stationed there. The activists don’t want a dangerous pipeline built on their land and near an essential water source. The police are there to keep them away and to defend the DAPL project.
Most of the info brought to the world about this life changing fight does not come from mainstream media, but from independent reporters that go to Standing Rock and meet with the activists. Erin Schrode is one such reporter.
