Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

Our land, our water, our children's future: A report from the frontlines of #NoDAPL.


These corporations see our land as an easy target, that because many of our nations are living in conditions of poverty, we'll be less likely to speak up. But we know what's being threatened. We know our future is being threatened. And we're not willing to sacrifice that.

Dr. Sarah Jumping Eagle details the stakes of the fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline - from threats to the environment and drinking water of the region's citizens, to the destruction of burial grounds and prayer sites already underway - and explains how resisting the pipeline's construction requires facing off with corporations, the state, militarized police and the media, and why they won't stop fighting to protect their past and future.

Sarah was one of several pipeline resisters arrested during a direct action in August.
