200 Feds In Riot Gear Said At Pine Ridge//URGENT!!
FORWARD AS FAR AND WIDE AS POSSIBLE
Indications are growing that the Oglala Sioux protesters who peacefully
took control of tribal facilities at the Pine Ridge Reservation in South
Dakota, in protest against tremendously extensive corruption and illegal
abusive practices on the part of fed-linked and infiltrated ruling
tribal authorities there, may become the target of a violent,
(para)military-style assault by federal troops said to massing at the
scene, outfitted in full-on SWAT-type paramilitary riot/assault gear.
The protesters are UNARMED! Women and children are among those occupying
the tribal facilities at the reservation.
Information about the situation is reportedly being monitored and
censored by the feds through control of the media access AND by
interception of phone and internet communications out of the location!
It's hard to believe that after hundreds of years of brutality,
betrayal, genocide, and generally unspeakably uncivilized behavior
towards the Native American Indians and their entire way of life, our
federal government to a large degree STILL persists in their
discriminatory, demeaning, psychopathic and despicable treatment of
Concerns are becoming greater than federal forces may use some pretext
to engaged in hostile "tactical operations" against the Sioux
protesters--you know, the kind that Delta Force and federal law
enforcement engaged in at Waco.
Mass media outlets are reporting VERY LITTLE if any of what is going on
at the Pine Ridge Reservation. It's very important that we use the power
of the Internet and forward this information far and wide; including to
media outlets as well, of course.

Dot, I just spoke with a person there. I am part indian myself and have
friends on the reservation. I was told by "Talking Leaves" that there are
close to 200 feds there and are in riot gear and armored vehicles. The
treasurer has intentions of returning tonight to the tribal bldg. with
armed guard. There are blocks on several groups...
I could not notify anyone. Apparently some of our freedom sites are
being heavily monitored!! Not only was my message alert stopped but
so were others that were posting information.
Pray for these people!!! This cannot be another Ruby Ridge or Wounded
Knee or Waco These people have had their money stolen from them. They
poverty as it is... The treasurer is white..I understand that they found
loophole in the treaty of 1834 and the whites have moved in to take over
the reservation. If you can get the word out, go for it...You can personally
call: 307-857-6984 and that is M.C. Tanner...(thunderlite). Tell him
gave you his number...ozark1....(Bettye). I just got off the phone with him
