Today the Native American Rights Fund (NARF) joined over thirty other Native organizations to call on President Obama to prevent violence and halt human and civil rights violations at Standing Rock.
The letter begins:
“The hundreds of Tribal Nations from across Indian Country, who are represented through the collective membership and voices of the undersigned organizations, reach out to you today to express our serious concerns regarding the recent activities occurring at the water protector campsites. We believe strongly that the recent tactics and excessive force employed by the police against the water protectors is an outright violation of their human and civil rights.”
