Four Unicorn Riot Journalists Face Charges for Covering #NoDAPL - Links and Commentary Included

Source - Discerning The Mystery

by Shem El-Jamal, October 21th 2016

Upon close examination, it may become obvious as to what is truly taking place in North Dakota at the pipeline. We have protectors and protesters standing between unconstitutional advancement of the pipeline project and an ever-increasing show of force by acting law enforcement who show multiple signs of compromised integrity.

Judging from the number of journalists arrested for simply reporting the story to the world (among the numerous mainstream sources that have remained completely silent), it seems very possible that the State Government of North Dakota has major issues with corruption. Yet despite these annoyances, these journalists have chosen to put their safety and freedom at risk for the sake of telling the true story of the Natives who are fighting to keep the Missouri River free of pollution which commonly results from oil pipelines. Yet for their hard labor and dedication, these reporters have been oppressed by an army of overly armed police, complete with armored vehicles.

These acting authorities have chosen to treat the Standing Rock Sioux—the rightful owners of this land—as though they are rioters and disorderly criminals even though these people are simply standing up for their right to exist. Many of the professional journalists have observed the direct and deliberate effort to intimidate and to punish journalists in particular. To any onlooker, it may go without saying that no one who believes they are in the right will go through so much trouble to hide their deeds in the way these acting authorities have. It is most likely that these seemingly compromised authorities know that they are outside of the law, and simply do not believe in the equality of all people.

We cannot say for certain as to why these acting authorities and the State of North Dakota have chosen to turn a blind eye to the American Constitutional, though money is likely to be a major factor. However, we can say that this type of inhumanity has no place in any country that considers itself to be free.

Four Unicorn Riot Journalists Face Charges For Covering #NoDAPL


Since April 1st, 2016, Unicorn Riot has been covering the Sacred Stone Spirit Camp, and the subsequent #NoDAPL movement, to stop construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) underneath both the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers.

Over three hundred tribes have come together to say no to the Dakota Access Pipeline. We’ve lived in a camp alongside these nations, sharing their culture and traditions and standing united in what some have called the largest gathering of Native people since 1898.

Over the last month, various law enforcement agencies, private mercenary organizations, and other DAPL assets, have expanded their aerial surveillance, “information” checkpoints, and use of heavily armed riot police backed by MRAP‘s and Bearcat armored vehicles. Amidst the militarized crackdown on demonstrations against the pipeline, hundreds of people have been arrested, including four Unicorn Riot journalists.

Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
