Grass-roots organizing, nonviolent direct action and leadership from front-line indigenous people succeeded in stopping the $3.8 billion, 1,200-mile pipeline in its tracks. As water protectors celebrated in the frozen camps, one question loomed: What will happen when Donald Trump takes over the presidency in six short weeks? Finally, for the first time in history, over centuries, somebody is listening to us, Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault II told us on Democracy Now! hours after hearing the news. Weve been talking about this with the Corps of Engineers for almost two years now, and weve been letting them know that we had problems with this pipeline, because it not only threatens our water, it threatens our heritage, it threatens our culture, it threatens our environment. Bitter cold weather has descended over the region, making life in the resistance camps even more difficult. Over the long Thanksgiving weekend, Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier and his deputies, along with a multijurisdictional array of paramilitarized police and National Guard, unleashed an arsenal of pepper spray, concussion grenades, tear gas, rubber bullets and, in the freezing cold, water cannons. North Dakotas outgoing Republican Gov. Jack Dalrymple, along with Sheriff Kirchmeier and Energy Transfer Partners CEO Kelcy Warren, shares responsibility for the unbridled police and private-security-company violence that has rained down upon the pipeline resisters for months. A week before the permit denial, Dalrymple declared a state of emergency, saying, Winter conditions have the potential to endanger human life. In response, the Standing Rock Sioux tribe wrote, The Governor of North Dakota and Sheriff of Morton County are relative newcomers [here]. It is understandable they would be concerned about severe winter weather. Former Vice President Al Gore, commenting a week later, said the use of water cannons in cold weather was inhumane, and called the pipeline itself an atrocity. While Dalrymple threatened to forcibly evict the thousands of peaceful water protectors, troops of a different sort were massing to defend them. U.S. military veterans were responding to a call from tribal elders to come defend the camp. Veterans Stand for Standing Rock were traveling to the camps to form a human shield around the protectors. Over 2,000 veterans made the journey, under the leadership of veteran Wes Clark Jr.
