I wrote this for Mother Courant.
December 5 is the deadline for the the Oceti Sakowin protest camp to close or face who-knows-what from the Army Corps of Engineers. Two thousand veterans are supposed to show up the day before.
Tepid approach? Really?
If the Corps wants to keep people safe and prevent further harm, then deny the easement, rescind the permit, order a full Environmental Impact Statement, and send Department of Justice observers.
Obama seems more concerned with protecting Trump’s investment than the people he has a duty to protect. Considering history and the power Obama still has to force a nonviolent solution to this problem, I think he’s gone way past tepid. Fucking Cold is more like it.
