Grandmas Fighting Pipelines

The grandmas we've come to know and love in Northeast Thailand aren't the only grandmas out there doing amazing things to protect their environment and way of life. In fact, we have some awesome grandma activism going on right now in the U.S. Check out this interview with LaDonna Brave Bull Allard, on democracynow.org. She co-founded the Sacred Stone Camp on her own land on April 1st to resist the Dakota Access pipeline and has been fighting ever since. 

In this interview LaDonna talks about the strength of the grandmas, and recalls the day security guards working for the Dakota Access pipeline company attacked Native Americans with dogs and pepper spray. A court has demanded the company halt construction of the pipeline, and yet it continues. Watch the full video to learn more about the amazing organizing efforts of this community.
