The Story from Standing Rock
They call themselves “water protectors” and describe the Dakota Access pipeline ferrying crude oil across America as “the black snake.” In the documentary film “Awake: A Dream From Standing Rock,” the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and those who flocked to windswept tribal lands in North Dakota last year to protest the pipeline, tell their story on their own terms. The film shows Tue., May 2 at 7 PM at the Commons @ BALE in South Royalton as part of the Environmental Justice Film Series. The showing is free (donations welcome) and is followed by discussion with Vermonters who went to Standing Rock. For more info, contact Nansi Singh HERE. Also showing, Tue., May 2 at 6:30 PM at Bugbee Senior Center. White River Junction. For info, contact Denis Rydjeski HERE.
