Theoretical statement with no intended context:
"If the police are restricting the freedom of the press without valid reason, aiming loaded weapons at unarmed non-hostile civilians, and intentionally disturbing and desecrating religious practices and elements, that is a valid reason to take some form of action in protest."
@levisan Here's some good context for you:
@wolfspider WOW, I have never heard of this! That's quite the sequence of events.

@levisan Hell of a timeline there! The Democracy Now interview caught me up. I was suspicious of their "traditional" lands claim, but a 1997 Supreme court ruling backs that up. I don't blame them one bit for trying to keep it out! But the corporations power comes from the point of government guns. Not much to be done except for lots of court or lots of bloodshed. They don't have a prayer trying to physically remove them, so it's going to be much court and more of the same unfruitful protesting.
