Help Stop the Use of Aggressive Tactics Against Peaceful Protestors

On November 20, 2016 law enforcement used water cannons and tear gas on protestors crossing Backwater Bridge in below freezing temperatures. We are asking people to call and ask for law enforcement to stand down from these life-endangering and combative tactics against the protestors of the North Dakota Access Pipeline. There is no room in democracy for water cannons, tear gas, or rubber bullets against unarmed and peaceful protestors and water protectors.
