Ahead of the Water is Life festival in Mackinaw City this weekend, we are replaying the third and last show in our series on the Standing Rock demonstrations. Malavika Sahai and Chris Askew-Merwin were joined by John Petoskey, JD candidate, Jens Lund, a visiting scholar from Denmark, and Becca Lynn, a sociology student at the University of Michigan. Becca shares first-hand experience from Standing Rock and explains how the water protectors have organized themselves and their actions. We debate the impacts that the new presidential administration may have on this struggle, how similar struggles play out in other environments, and how recent political changes are impacting the morale and resolve of the water protectors and their supporters.
