Meanwhile, in North Dakota, prosecutors have dropped all serious charges against former North Dakota congressional candidate Chase Iron Eyes, who had been facing up to six years in prison for participating in the resistance to the Dakota Access pipeline. This is Chase Iron Eyes, speaking only days after his arrest on February 1, 2017.

Chase Iron Eyes: “We talk about the arrests. The arrests are above 700 in number. … It includes dog attacks. It includes water cannons in subfreezing temperatures, the negligent or intentional risking of human lives. It includes the lying—the Morton County law enforcement agencies lying about the criminal conduct. And so, there is a lot happening. There is a lot that they need to be held accountable for.”
