Interview with Amber BrackenBy Svetlana Bachevanova    

Q. Some compare the Standing Rock protest with the battle at Little Big Horn in 1876, also known as General Custer’s Last Stand. This time the battle was the spirit against the grid. Who do you think won it?
AB. Well, that pipeline is completed and flowing with oil so it looks like industry won this battle.

The connections made in those camps are strong and I think we will see more organizing in the near future. Read the interview here...
