The Pipeline Is Rape

The Pipeline Is Rape

In his first days Trump has moved to reboot the Dakota Access Pipeline. His first acts in office have made it clear that his prime motivation has nothing to do with serving the people. He serves only his own threatened ego and intends to take revenge against anyone who challenges it's dominance.

The Pipeline is an act of rape. The attempt to push it through has little to do with necessity or economy. It's the clearest effort by an administration of white male supremacists to show their dominance over all the earth and all people.

This confluence of cultural and historical forces give the struggle rare symbolic resonance. It delineates a spiritual crisis as much as a political one.

Resistance to the Pipeline will define the political will of a generation, as Kent State defined that of another and the Battle of Little Big Horn and it's aftermath defined yet another. The ultimate outcome will define America's image to the rest of the world for many years to come.,/p> R.E.M.
