North Dakota: #NoDAPL Organizer Cody Hall Released from Jail

HeadlineSep 13, 2016

Meanwhile, in North Dakota, Cody Hall of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe has been released from jail after being held for three days without bail or bond. Hall says he was chased down by four squad cars and arrested only minutes after going through a checkpoint on Friday afternoon. An arrest warrant had been issued for him over his alleged presence at the September 3 land defense action and for a subsequent protest on September 6. Hall is considered a lead organizer in the movement against the Dakota Access pipeline. Speaking to Democracy Now!, Hall said FBI agents visited him while he was in custody, but that he refused to speak to them. This is Hall speaking in a video after he was released Monday.

Cody Hall: “I was met with intimidating forces by law enforcement that tried to tried to show their flex and tried break me down mentally and just do those psychological things which I would give myself up to know that I won’t be broken down.”
