Sandy Tolan was in North Dakota today as police and National Guard troops marched in to break up the protest over the proposed Dakota Access oil pipeline.

He writes: “The protesters faced down the advancing forces with prayers, songs and torrents of declarations, including ‘Water is life!’ and ‘We will stand our ground!'”
