Your Call: Standing Rock, the whole world's watching

 

On the November 2nd edition of Your Call, we’ll continue our coverage from Standing Rock.

After last week’s arrests and violent crackdown, the police have created a barrier protecting the $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline. On Monday, earth moving equipment, trucks, and ATVs were seen driving over what tribal members say are sensitive burial sites.

We’ll discuss the latest with Germaine Tremmel, an international lawyer and the great great great granddaughter of Sitting Bull. Join us live at 10 am with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guests:

Germaine Tremmel, international lawyer with the United Nations
