North Dakota justifies eviction at Standing Rock to prevent environmental catastrophe
hahaha! Poor lefty, the monster he created is gnawing at his own leg now.
Governor of North Dakota Doug Burgum’s office has finally provided us with records about how they went about cleaning up the Oceti Sakowin protest camps at Standing Rock. Due to the dismantling being conducted by private contractors, there isn’t much in terms of concrete actions, but we did receive some intriguing memoranda coming out of the Governor’s office.
The collection of documents released to us illustrate how fraught the relationship is between the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and North Dakota, with multiple references to the camp being “an ecological disaster waiting to happen.” Claims that the camp was going to pollute the Cannonball River were issued by Burgum himself, and members of his staff.
