Standing rock take me from the river

For many citizens a line had been crossed inspiring thousands from across the political spectrum travelling to Standing Rock and joining the resistance to Dakota Access Pipeline. This story follows the experience of a few of those citizens from Milwaukee, Wisconsin with members of the Overpass Light Brigade and Michael Bootzin making for this "brew city" journey into water protecting. In Spring 2016, the call went out, no one would have guessed that by November the camp would grow and the movement would gain so much support around the world. Over 850 citizens were arrested during this resistance to protect the water. The story of Standing Rock is our future. How we treat the environment and each other is our destiny.
