CounterSpin interview with Kandi Mossett on No DAPL update


Oct 27, 2016

The video above was recorded at camp in early Oct. Below is Kandi’s statement on 10-27-2016 after the sacred sights were desecrated:

Friends and Family. I just made it back to my computer. My car is at the frontline with my phone in it because it was charging and then they came with tanks and riot police and I got caught off guard when one of those sound grenades went off and someone next to me got shot with what we think was a rubber bullet or bean bag bullets and looked like it broke his ribs. Later another guy right next to me was grabbed randomly by police and I got shoved into them and so they sprayed everyone and I got hit by the spray but stayed on the front line as they backed us up back towards the camp. This is a severely edited version but it was choas and like war and I’m sick like I feel ill but I’m ok and some people were arrested and they took Casey Camp when she was praying and it was insane. I can’t believe what happened to us today. There were fires with vehicles and equipment on fire and military tanks and police atv’s surrounding us and two helicopters and one plane flying overhead. There was a sniper in the water and he got surround by our people and the BIA came to arrest him and they were using the MRAP sound machine on us and people were hurt today by the police. It was all the police escalating and escalating because they came and forcibly removed us forcing us back to the reservation line. I have to lay down a moment and drink water or eat or something I feel sick but wanted to let people know I did not get taken and am ok.
