Copwatch Cameras for Standing Rock
Organized by: We Copwatch
We Made Our First Order!
November 25, 2016
As Police attacks on Water Protectors intensifies at Standing Rock, a Native led Copwatch group is formed. We need cameras, and fast!
FBI surveillance planes, drones and low flying helicopters are ever present over camp and armored vehicles and snipers are positioned on hilltops nearby at the ready.
Undercover provocateurs and DAPL employees frequently infiltrate the camp perpetrating violence against people.
Water Protectors are being met with violence as riot police indiscriminately swing batons and deploy tasers, gas, water cannons, and projectiles at peaceful people.
But theres hope. The resistance continues to grow, and recently a Copwatch group has been formed on the groud at Standing Rock
WeCopwatch has been at Standing Rock for the past week supporting the formation of a Copwatch at Standing Rock. This is a Native run group who have been holding it down on the front lines.
These cameras will be used for actions, police assaults, and security at the camps.
WeCopwatch will be helping train trainers and different groups about their rights when interacting with law enforcement and while copwatching.
Right now we are trying to purchase at least 20 cameras. Ten for our group, and the rest for varies camps and tribes who are also on the front lines documenting the police
Donate what you can. Money will purchase cameras, literature, and gear, but we need plenty of resources as well such as computers, video cards, hardrives, and literature.
