Standing Rock

  

Native Americans who opposed the Dakota Access Oil Pipeline were subjected to tear gas, water cannons, rubber bullets, and strip searches. The Intercept reports that they were also heavily surveilled.

We’ll have a conversation with environmental justice activist Winona LaDuke about Native Americans' struggle to protect their lands, waters, sacred places, and treaty rights.

This week, we’ll discuss coverage of Donald Trump's new national security adviser, Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster. Who is McMaster? We’ll also talk about the forced evacuation of the remaining Native Americans and their allies at Standing Rock.
