FEATURING PAULETTE MOORE – The Standing Rock Sioux tribe’s stand in North Dakota against the fossil fuel industry has set a new standard for activism. Thousands of Americans, native and non-native, have converged near the site of a controversial multi-billion dollar pipeline over the past year. Now, a new documentary captures the stunning vistas of the camps, the stories of elders, and the tactics of water protectors for those of us who couldn’t travel to witness the movement first hand.
The film is entitled, The Spirit of Standing Rock and it premieres on Wednesday February 15th on Free Speech TV at 5 pm Pacific, 8 pm Eastern, with subsequent screenings. More information about the screening HERE.
