Standing up for Standing Rock

Submitted by Open on Sun, 12/04/2016 - 03:06

The time for peaceful activism is upon us. Bolstered by the recent US election result, the industrial madness machine is revving up its smokey engine. The earth's biosphere is being increasingly ravaged. And although sentient life is ascending into a New Paradigm in the Fifth Density, we must protect the sacredness of life here in the 3D for as long as we possibly can. We must keep those portals of light - bridges into the higher density - open as long as possible. That's why Openhand stands energetically behind the courageous protestors at the now infamous "Standing Rock", where big business risks polluting Fist Nations land and water with their underground oil pipeline. There's a growing sense of injustice out there in the world. A sense for realignment is strongly bubbling up in many regions...

To understand the essence of the escalating Standing Rock peaceful demonstration, check out this informative and passionate mini documentary here...

Standing firm in a heart-felt vibration

As so eloquently expressed in the video, this is not just about First Nations people in Dakota, it's representative of standing peacefully against the accelerating exploitation and toxic pollution of the Earth's Biosphere, and all sentient life within it, by big business corporations.

As energy workers, although we may not be able to be there in person, we can meditate and hold a steady heart-felt vibration of support. If peaceful campaigns like this can succeed, it will inspire many more around the world to stand up against the growing earth exploitation.

Life is ascending beyond this 3D paradigm, which is beginning to draw to a close. Holding the space open for as long as humanly possible, means the maximum opportunity for the greatest number of souls to ascend through the 5GATEWAYS.

Brothers and sisters of Standing Rock, we stand with you.

Thank you so much for posting this thread, Open,

I was about to post a comment on this subject, because I have been following the cause there for quite a while now.
The coflict there shows, in my opinion, what it all boils down to: A liveless more than dead trilliondollar-company and a liveless oil-pipeline which is a threat to nature, is being protected my militarized brutal humans fighting against their brothers and sisters, harming them, threatening them, bullying them, whose only crime is that they stand up for Mother Nature, for their human rights and at the end of the line for all of us.
Tha Matrix couldn't show it clearer.

I am deeply touched by the words and the deeds of the people over there, by the way they want to worship nature and contribute to a healing, by the way they honor each living Being and the way they act as peaceful and loving beings.
I feel they are not only standing up for Standing Rock, but for all of us. And I think this is why people from everywhere continue to join them over there. We all can feel it. It is for all of us.

Today will be held a joined synchronized prayer troughout the world.
Here is the link for everyone who wants to join in:

Sending positive vibes to Dakota.

Whilst we cannot perhaps be there in person we can of course in spirit.
And there are many other similar battles (which get v little media attention ofc) ongoing to which we can add our peaceful power.

Fracking companies are working hard to get a foothold here in UK, to copy the havoc they continue to wreek across US.
They have government support.
There are lots of proposed and potential sites.

For US view see docu 'Gasland' by Josh Fox' - heres the trailer:

Heres a couple of useful UK websites:

The barbarians are not getting it all their own way tho.
Here's some very good news from my area (Dorset) where a 'test' drill site has been established but has (at least for now) be scotched by local communtiy direct action and the occupation of the proposed site in a 'protection camp':

*DANCE* *DANCE* *DANCE*

It seems that the economics of the situation are making it hard for the frack companies.
Protest/protection costs them money!
Also local knowledge of the potential impact is much better.
We had meets here too that informed local people of the potential damage which galvanised opposition to the sites.
We can all contribute here just by spreading the vibe and the word.
It worked here in Dorset.

Love always,

In a statement, Standing Rock tribal chairman Dave Archambault II said: 'Today, the US Army Corps of engineers announced that it will not be granting the easement to cross Lake Oahe for the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline.

Instead, the Corps will be undertaking an environmental impact statement to look at possible alternate routes."

Thanks for that Malechite. Great news indeed! I found this in the UK's Guardian a few moments ago...

    The Army Corps of Engineers will not grant the permit for the Dakota Access pipeline to drill under the Missouri river, the army announced on Sunday, handing a major victory to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe after a months-long campaign against the pipeline.

    Assistant secretary for civil works Jo-Ellen Darcy announced the decision on Sunday, with the army saying it was based on “a need to explore alternate routes” for the crossing.

    “Although we have had continuing discussion and exchanges of new information with the Standing Rock Sioux and Dakota Access, it’s clear that there’s more work to do,” Darcy said in a statement. “The best way to complete that work responsibly and expeditiously is to explore alternate routes for the pipeline crossing.”

    The army corps will undertake an environmental impact statement and look for alternative routes, the tribe said in its own announcement.

    “The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and all of Indian Country will be forever grateful to the Obama administration for this historic decision,” tribal chairman Dave Archambault said in a statement.

    While the news is a victory, Jan Hasselman, an attorney for the tribe, cautioned that the decision could be appealed.

    “They [Energy Transfer Partners] can sue, and Trump can try to overturn,” Hasselman said. “But overturning it would be subject to close scrutiny by a reviewing court, and we will be watching the new administration closely.”

    “We hope that Kelcey Warren, Governor [Jack] Dalrymple, and the incoming Trump administration respect this decision and understand the complex process that led us to this point,” Archambault said.

    The announcement came just one day before the corps’ deadline for thousands of Native American and environmental activists – who call themselves water protectors – to leave the sprawling encampment on the banks of the river. For months, they have protested over their fears that the pipeline would contaminate their water source and destroy sacred sites, and over the weekend hundreds of military veterans arrived at the camps in a show of support for the movement.

    As word spread in the main camp, protesters broke out in jubilant celebrations, and with nightfall a few fireworks burst above the tents and campfires.

    “I just cried when I heard the news,” said Sylvia Picotte, a member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe who travelled to Standing Rock every weekend since August. “We have been stepped on for so long, all I could do was hope.”

    “It’s the silver water serpent coming from the air to beat the black snake,” said Jake Damon, a member of the Navajo Nation from Albuquerque, New Mexico, referring to a prophecy of a black snake that many have interpreted to mean the pipeline.

    “This wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for the unity of the tribes.”

This is a powerful development. If it stands, it is a great victory. And it sends out a message that where people have true courage and stand together in the face of such brutal oppression, then the energy is there to support them through the field now. I sense we're on the cusp of another vital change in this Great 5D Shift.

Namaste

Open *OK*

Hi Open,

Thanks for starting this thread on Standing Rock. I thought that those following this thread might also like this music video:

Plenty of people plan to stay put at Standing Rock. They know that the pipeline builders intend to continue after the "Holiday" is over. So, let us celebrate that there is a respite and continue to send the energy their way for what lies ahead in 2017.

It's great to see so many come together. I just experienced something like this on a smaller scale. As a neighborhood we opposed access through for another development. To the point his access was denied yet he came with excavators and we stood our ground, were threatened by law enforcement to be charged with civil disobedience. We had won the initial judgement which stopped the project until the appeal went to the next level. Basically, the developer submitted multiple surveys prior that were approved, thus even though it is not in the best interest of the people or in the interest of their health and safety, the assembly board overturned the initial decision stating those are not a basis to deny even though we had water studies documented. Now, we have the option to appeal that decision. So when I read about Standing Rock and their great movement, I feel a wolf in sheeps clothing looming. A permit not granted is only a small distraction in this moment.

I was able to experience how ridiculous this system of control truly is. All the legal loopholes and ridiculous verbiage that spins circles yet the simple concept "for the common good" which is the fundamental concept that most all is built upon isn't upheld or given the attention it requires to create healthy societies. I felt such rage at the injustice of being trampled over. I'm being with that energy which is so strong right now, it feels so ancient and primal, it's overwhelming, I am processing, going deeper into it yet feel so much darkness like a final drape closing. While I care so much about Mother Earth, it feels so painful to stay within it. In the past, I've just gone outside it all connecting through the cosmic Universal flow feeling grateful and humble allowing compassion to soothe. Now, I feel to honor the collective energy, to be within it. It's still coming through and I don't have the words right now.
Namaste

In the context of today's synchronised prayer for standing rock, I came across this amazing song.

To the east and west
To the north and south
Warrior Warrior
Gather every tribe
Mama needs you now
Warrior Warrior
Suits are moving in just to get their dollar
Treaties being broken no respect or honor
Listen close my friend
This is happening
Warrior Warrior
If you are a rock
Stand up like a mountain
Rise up from the earth
One Love One Message
I know that we are strong in spirit
And if you are the righteous, hear it
If you are a rock
Stand up like a mountain
Burn the sage and cedar
Spirit is the leader
Warrior Warrior
The clouds are getting heavy
Thunder Beings are ready
Warrior Warrior
Where the oil spills we cannot drink the water
Seven Generations all the sons and daughters
Gather all your friends
This is happening
Warrior Warrior
Water is Life
Life from the Water
Water is Life
Elders they taught us
Water is Life
Life from the Water
