We are overwhelmed with political circus and lose sight of the real struggles in the world. Right now we are witnessing (thanks mostly to social media) a brutal militarized police response to the Water Protectors in North Dakota. We must not dismiss them as mere ‘protestors’ for they are attempting at great personal risk to protect our most precious resource: water. We must speak out against corporate greed that threatens our democracy and the planet.
The Social Justice Committee, standing on the side of love for the rights of indigenous peoples and the environment, has made a donation of $200 to the Standing Rock Camp fund at Go Fund Me http://sacredstonecamp.org/supply-list/. Please consider making a personal donation to the camp fund or legal fund. – Libby Earle, Social Justice Committee
