Shailene Woodley arrested at #NoDAPL

With nearly 40k people watching live this morning from her Facebook streaming video, actress Shailene Woodley was arrested.

She retreated from the peaceful gathering as asked, yet returned to her RV on Highway 1806 to find it surrounded by police.  As she hands her recording phone to her mother, she is informed she has trespassed and will be arrested.  She asks why she has been singled out – is it because she is famous?  Has a trending live video?

The officers cannot be heard or seen reading her her rights.

Woodley is being held at Morton County along with other Protectors following the US Court of Appeal’s denial of Standing Rock’s injunction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.

While everyone was watching the #Debate last night, the US Court of Appeals denied #StandingRock its injunction against the #DakotaAccessPipeline. This morning, on #IndigenousPeoplesDay, armed riot police have arrived in Cannon Ball, North Dakota. It is so crucial for people to help spread the news and get this trending. Use #NoDAPL and other hashtags like#StandWithStandingRock and #ReZpectOurWater.
We need to get these hashtags trending.  Use your email, social media, and phone.  Start contacting everyone you know.  Call the Army Corps.  Express your opposition to the project as it stands and your solidarity with Standing Rock.  And PLEASE SHARE.
Letting this pipeline proceed will set precedent to the dismantling of tribal sovereignty for all of our 567 sovereign nations in the United States alone. It, of course, will also jeopardize natural resources and the safety of the Standing Rock community.
