RT @cinnamaldehyde: "Mylan's lobbying to add EpiPen to preventative list (no copays & skyrocketing retail cost). https://t.co/r2IppemOJl https://t.co/dCbPTRz31j

You may have noticed that EpiPen is a treatment for an existing situation. It's not preventative. Unless you mean preventing death, I guess."

Hey, so...

Protestors, reporters, and medics are being arrested. The National Guard has been called in. Video and images of the police violence are being censored. The company building the DAPL has sent attack dogs against children who were protesting with their parents. People have been hospitalized. Arrested protestors and media have been denied bail.

This is the largest concentrated violence against an indigenous people in the USA in the last almost a hundred years. Even before the violence started, just for granting permits to build the pipeline in the first place, the UN condemned the USA for not following the standards for respecting the rights of indigenous peoples. I have seen no followup that addresses the violence, but I hope it will be swift and scathing.

Please take a few minutes to add your voice to the protests. The only even remote chance of stopping this is if people say en masse that it is unacceptable.

h/t to +Trevor Schadt for this. I don't especially care if these soaps are "better" or "more effective" than others, so long as they are AS good & AS effective & not harmful. And marketing stops saying or implying that they have effects that they're not proven to have.

Seriously, I have done everything I can to stop the pipeline. Please do everything you can. Call the White House, and spread the word. This is unacceptable.
My Sioux tribe opposes a pipeline that risks the clean water of millions.
