As I just wrote, Amy Goodman of Democracy Now, was charged with criminal trespass while reporting on a violent attack against Native American men, women and children who were peacefully protesting the desecration of sacred sites during the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. This is a clear violation of freedom of the press. She will turn herself in to authorities in North Dakota Monday morning.
We need to speak out when authorities infringe upon our rights. I urge you to write a letter to the editor of your newspaper. Following is what I submitted to the Indianapolis Star today.
If we don’t speak out, infringements will continue. If you don’t speak up, who will?
Thank you for your efforts to protect our freedoms.
