CANNON BALL, North Dakota -- The grassroots live radio station, Standing Rock's Spirit Resistance Radio began broadcasting live on Monday morning, after a satellite was installed on Sunday. Thousands of Native Americans have gathered to protect the Missouri River from an underwater crude oil pipeline, Dakota Access Pipeline, which threatens their water supply.
The radio station is now broadcasting live online at The station was already live in camp at 87.9 FM.

Before the satellite was installed, Govinda Dalton of Earthcycles, producer, was driving the audios out of camp. The audios were then posted on Censored News, due to the lack of Internet service in camp.
A delegation of Apache and Dine’ (Navajo) youths were among those interviewed on Spirit Resistance Radio. Naelyn Pike, Apache, described how Arizona Sen. John McCain sold out the Apaches by giving Resolution Copper their sacred place of Oak Flat in Arizona. McCain put the land exchange in the defense spending bill to avoid public detection and outrcry at the time.
Spirit Resistance Radio interviewed Lakota elders and youths, along with young entrepreneurs from Rosebud who are beekeepers selling their honey, and those whose lives are being transformed by being at the camp.
“It is no longer a camp, it is a village,” said Govinda Dalton, producer, who has been broadcasting Indigenous news and struggles as a volunteer for more than a decade on Earthcycles.
Dennis Banks, co-founder of the American Indian Movement, and attorneys have been interviewed on Spirit Resistance Radio.
The issues range from the Rights of Nature, with roots in Bolivia and Ecuador, to a series recorded around the campfire at night. This includes Lakota elders speaking on healing the trauma of boarding schools with ceremonies.

MNN. AUG. 30, 2016. We onkwe’hon:weh, the natural people of great turtle island, are not part of the occupying CORPORATION. All Admiralty courts are artificial private Vatican courts for banks, corporations and are always about money. The corporation is a violent squatter that put their guns to us, killed us and stole everything. They started the same in Palestine in 1947. They try to put all of our issues into their own corporate matrix.white house indian
There is only one court that has jurisdiction over such an international matter, the Permanent Court of Arbitration, set up in 1899 in The Hague. It is a dispute resolution court. Every corporation has private shareholders, they can be held accountable for the crimes of their corporation in the Permanent Court of Arbitration. No trial about us or our land belongs in their corporate matrix. FB_IMG_1471552264063
This occupying corporation and their armies have to be put on trial in the Permanent Court of Arbitration.
The pipeline is on our land. They need our permission. Consultation with their corporate band and tribal entities are fraud. Canada and US have no right to arbitrate anything with regard to us and our land. We are not part of their corporation. B0_2210783226431832471_n
We have international partners, such as Netherlands, Estonia, Latvia, Russia, China, India, iran and other ancient allies who sponsored us when we went to the League of Nations in 1923. They remember us.
As Bob Seeger sings about the people at Standing Rock: Like a rock, standin’ arrow straight. Like a rock, chargin, from the gate. Like a rock, carryin’ the weight. Like a rock.

BISMARK, North Dakota -- Native American water defenders reminded the law firm Fredrikson -- representing Dakota Access Pipeline in Bismarck, N.D., -- of the sacredness of water today.
Earlier today, Native Americans at the camp at Cannon Ball held a water ceremony, and then took sacred water to the law firm.
Outside the law firm, Michelle Cook said, "They locked the doors on us and refused to speak to us as to why they are representing a corporation that is violating human rights."
The law firm of Fredrikson and Byron states that it  is a 275-attorney law firm based in Minneapolis, with offices in Bismarck, Des Moines, Fargo, St. Paul, Monterrey, Mexico, and Shanghai, China.

Today, with the new satellite installed at Standing Rock Spirit Resistance Radio, and the crew preparing to go live online, we also prepare for another milestone at Censored News. Today we will hit 6 million views.
I began Censored News 10 years ago, as a response to being censored and terminated as a staff reporter for Indian Country Today.
Censored News was created to provide a platform for the traditional and grassroots voices being censored. It has been a labor of love with no ads, grants or revenues all these years.
Today is also a special day because I see the faces and words of the people who have been my friends, and fellow laborers for human rights, all these years, including Michelle Cook, Dine', and Govinda, at Spirit Resistance Radio; Ofelia Rivas, O'odham, Kahentinetha at Mohawk Nation News, and so many at the Standing Rock Camp, along with all of you at home doing the best you can to make this world a better place to live.
We have traveled to Bolivia, with the Zapatistas, and throughout the Americas, always struggling, always doing the best we can.
Thanks to all of you who have shared your truths, photos and more with Censored News all these years.
Best, Brenda Norrell, Censored News

Cannon Ball River, 1851 Ft Laramie Treaty Territory…The weekend after the federal judge declared that he will wait up to two weeks to issue his ruling to temporarily halt construction of the Dakota Access  Pipeline, the Red Warrior Camp continues to grow and thrive.
The camp has established a recycling program; a food distribution program to support camp kitchens; nonviolent direct action training and culture based activities.
North Dakota Homeland Security Division's decision to abruptly remove their trailers and drinking water tanks have not affected the people in camp.
Much like our ancestors before us, we are resilient and will persevere.  These delays will not deter, but in fact will motivate, the people to focus on what they came here for…to protect the water.
More than 50 native nations and allies from around the world have converged here on the banks of the Cannon Ball River to be a voice for the sacred water and Mother Earth.  The population is expected to increase in the coming week with the influx of additional tribal nations arriving.
