Black Snake Killaz is a feature-length documentary film about the
resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline. This film explores actions
taken by water protectors to stop the construction of the oil pipeline
and highlights actions taken by law enforcement, military, and corporate
mercenaries to quell the months-long protest. Black Snake Killaz
timelines the historical events that unfolded in Standing Rock
throughout 2016 and brings you the raw experience from many frontline
actions to protect the water. Although the Dakota Access Pipeline is
completed, the impact of the movement will be long-lasting. As fossil
fuel extraction projects continue to impact some of the most vulnerable
communities throughout the United States of America, the importance of
the water protectors story grows.

Black Snake Killaz (2017) was produced for non-profit educational
purposes and is not to be sold or commercialized for any reason. Public
screenings are allowed for non-commercial purposes only. This film is

WATER PROTECTOR ENBRIDGE LINE 3 PRESS RELEASE – MAKWA INITIATIVE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WATER PROTECTORS SHUT DOWN WISCONSIN LINE 3 CONSTRUCTION & ISSUE WARNING
TO ENBRIDGE – STAY OUT OF MINNESOTA

On the morning of Wednesday, November 25th water protectors from Camp
Makwa stormed an Enbridge construction site, and delayed progress on the
last unfinished Wisconsin segment of their proposed line 3 pipeline
project. One individual from the Diné Nation descended into the muddy
trench, climbed onto the pipe, and locked himself to welding equipment.
A Leech Lake Tribal member then climbed atop an excavator and attached
himself to a hydraulic arm. Construction was halted for approximately
six hours, costing the company thousands of dollars, as the individuals
put their bodies on the line to protect the water and the futures of
their children.

Later in the day two more water protectors were arrested, while standing
on the side of the public road. They were both tackled to the ground by
Sergeant Kirchhoff of the Superior Police Department. For one of the
arrests, when asked on what grounds he was acting, officer Kirchhoff
cited a warrant that he could not produce. Later investigation found
that the warrant he cited was unsigned and improperly filed. Last Week
Sergeant Kirchhoff received media attention for tackling a woman to the
ground without warning at a similar protest. The woman's charges were
later dropped.

The Enbridge Line 3 Replacement Project is estimated to carry almost one
million barrels of tar sands oil from Alberta, Canada to Superior,
Wisconsin; Enbridge has received approval in Wisconsin, but has not
received approval in Minnesota, which would be the largest segment of
the proposed project. The non-violent direct action came after a week of
evidentiary hearings in Minnesota, where Enbridge revealed that it had
already paid for 100% of the pipe for the project. The same day as the
action it was discovered that before her time in public office Judge Ann
C O’Reilly, the individual in charge of holding public hearings on the
Line 3 Project, worked for a firm that represented oil companies on
multiple occasions.

One water protector stated “Enbridge doesn’t have their permits for
Minnesota and they have already started chopping trees down for their
easement and filling its pipe storage yards. We went to the public
hearings and found them full to the brim with Enbridge employees who
were paid to be there. We fought again and again just to have 3 minutes
to speak. Now we watch as truck after truck come into our communities
carrying pipes and out of state pipeline workers. We made our comments,
but they didn’t listen. The project is already bringing violence to our
land and our women and children. We know that with these man camps comes
increased levels of drugs, rape, and missing and murdered indigenous
women. Enbridge will not take no for an answer so we have to stop them.
We want to make clear in no uncertain terms, Enbridge is not welcome in
Minnesota.”

DEFEND #J20 RESISTANCE DEFENDANTS – MEDICS & PRESS FACE PRISON

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WILL SPEND MILLIONS TO TRY INAUGURATION DAY
DEFENDANTS, EACH FACING DECADES IN PRISON

Trials begin November 15 despite an ongoing investigation into
questionable arrests, police misconduct

Washington, DC – Trials for the nearly 200 people arrested on
Inauguration Day began on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 in DC Superior
Court before Judge Lynn Leibovitz.

The first bloc of trials include seven defendants—Jennifer Armento,
Oliver Harris, Britt Lawson, Michelle “Miel” Macchio, Christina Simmons,
Jayram Toraty, and Alexei Wood.

In addition to protesters, the first trial bloc includes a
photojournalist and two people being identified by the prosecution as
street medics. Alexei Wood was documenting events that day, and is one
of two journalists still facing charges. Many volunteer medics were in
DC during the inauguration weekend to provide care for people engaging
in political expression. Several of these medics were caught up in the
mass arrest on Inauguration Day and are still facing charges.

In a recent hearing Assistant US Attorney Jennifer Kerkhoff reduced the
charges against seven defendants scheduled for trial on December 11,
2017 to three misdemeanors: engaging in a riot, conspiracy to riot, and
property destruction. The reduction of charges to misdemeanors for these
defendants means that the trial will be held before Judge Leibovitz
without an empanelled jury.

In an indictment issued in April, each of the more than 200 defendants
at the time were charged with at least 8 felonies–rioting, inciting a
riot, conspiracy to riot, and multiple counts of property destruction.
But, on Wednesday, Judge Leibovitz issued an order correcting the
‘rioting’ and ‘conspiracy to riot’ charges by reducing them to
misdemeanors. Each defendant is still facing as much as 60 years in
prison.

The first trials begin more than a month after an independent
investigation was initiated by the DC Mayor’s Office of Police
Complaints (OPC) into the questionable arrests and violence carried out
by the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) on Inauguration Day. The OPC
issued a report in February critical of MPD conduct, recommending that
the district hire an “independent consultant” to investigate MPD
misconduct. The District Council responded by allocating $150,000 to the
investigation which began last month.

To clear up apparent confusion over the sequence of events on
Inauguration Day, Defend J20 Resistance has published a graphic
timeline. Specifically, the timeline indicates how police wantonly
attacked protesters, journalists, medics, legal observers and bystanders
soon after the march left Logan Circle. The timeline refutes claims by
MPD Chief Peter Newsham that the police attacks were in response to a
damaged limousine, something that occurred more than five hours after
people were trapped and detained by MPD.

The next trial bloc is scheduled for December 11, 2017, and remaining
trials will take place over the next year, through the fall of 2018. The
roughly 20 trial blocs will typically consist of 8-9 defendants each.

PAPER REVOLUTION COLLECTIVE UPDATE

While our volunteer operations vary in cost, we are currently and most
imminently in need of acquiring a Secure Socket Layer [SSL] CERTIFICATE
for our website operations. We are wanting to be able to provide a more
secure experience for all of those who consider themselves a part of our
wonderful, and most empowered collective as we continue to curate and
distribute revolutionary content.

In these times of mass surveillance and censorship it is imperative that
we protect the data of our 210,657 annual international website
visitors. A SSL certificate will allow us to provide expanded website
features and tools for activism.

We need to raise at least $45.00 today to allow us to do this. We
understand that this is asking a lot out of our community... to put it
simply, the added annual costs for obtaining such technology would
otherwise drain the pockets of our volunteers who work to continue to
provide our international community with our many resources.

Any additional funds received will be used for continued operation costs
along with the expansion of available resources for our collective
community.
