Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels across country in my mobile billboard truck as I attempt to engage in dialogue with people in hopes to wake us up and inspire action to change our country and communities and selves. And it is froth with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society and life we want

The fuckin amazing Water Protectors

If you haven't experienced how total strangers can come together to work on building community, from absent or nothing to thriving, then it might be hard to clearly see how amazing some humans are and how grateful I am for them in my life.

Everyone, every Water Protector, has their shining abilities and strengths to lend to such a creation of community but here I want to talk specifically about two groups of Water Protectors: the Legal team and the Medic team!

Today, the amazing volunteers of the legal collective showed up in court for us, took notes, met with us afterwards, and told us they are going to find us a lawyer who is excited about our case, to support us through the whole trial, and to meet our needs anyway they can.

These Water Protectors are fabulous, sincere, dedicated humans that I want to give a huge shout out to - for without their support, knowledge and hard work, getting arrested, going to jail, and then going to trial would be soooooooo much more difficult.

And they just show up and appear when you need them!

I also want to again acknowledge the Medics - what special humans, risking their safety if not their lives to run out onto the front lines, to grab injured folks and move them to safety while treating their injuries and calming their pain and panic.

Both legal and medics just appear, summoned as if by magic, to take care of us and support us! THANK YOU!!!
