Standing with Standing Rock

Some good news finally! The Lakota Sioux and their supporters (including over 200 other native American nations) have succeeded in convincing the Army Corps of Engineers not to permit construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline under the Missouri River (at least for now).
These are pictures I took at a teach-in at The New School on Friday around the work of the "water protectors." (The young man below, Jaque Fragua from Jemez Pueblo, designed the logo, marrying a famous image from the American revolution with a Lakota prophecy about a black snake.) It didn't seem then that victory might be so close at hand.
