Kandi Mossett on Standing Rock and the Dakota Access Pipeline
This week on Voices from the Frontlines Your National Movement Building Show, Eric Mann has a conversation with comrade in struggle Kandi Mossett from Indigenous Environmental Network. Kandi speaks about the current crisis around Standing rock that is in violation of the Treaty of Fort Laramie of 1851 and 1868. The Dakota Access Pipeline is being constructed on ceded lands and is a disaster that renders any of the U.S. rhetoric around climate change as false given that the pipeline is being built to transport up to 570,000 barrels of crude oil a day according to the Yessenia Funes from Colorlines magazine.
