This Lawsuit Could Save Standing Rock
Are you invested in seeing justice for the Standing Rock Sioux and a halt to the build out of the Dakota Access Pipeline? Then you should get familiar with the name Tangerine Bolen. Bolen, a guest in the latest episode of Redacted Tonight VIP, is the founder and executive director of RevolutionTruth.org, an all volunteer organization dedicated to standing up for human rights and preserving civil liberties. Claiming a need for both environmental and racial justice, Bolen talks with host Lee Camp about her effort to bring forward lawsuits that could put an end to the Dakota Access Pipeline and protect the land and water of the Standing Rock Sioux.
While so many people fight on the ground as Water Protectors in North Dakota, millions of others are helping out on social media or by donating money to the cause. Meanwhile back in the nation’s capital, President Donald Trump has chosen the polar opposite of anything to do with racial and social justice to be his senior policy advisor: Stephen Miller. The newest sociopath in Trump’s political circus, Miller, 31, seems to only have demonstrated experience in being racist, xenophobic and homophobic. And he’s using his newfound role to continue to spread Trump’s lies about widespread voter fraud, while seeming to ignore the election fraud that prevented millions of eligible Americans from exercising their right to vote in Election 2016. Lee goes back and forth and breaks down Miller’s most recent media appearance.
