I don't know how long it will last, although I suspect it could be permanent. At least for the moment.....

I don't know how long it will last, although I suspect it could be permanent. At least for the moment I have reached a new level in my spiritual strength as a human rights activist. I have the sense of looking forward to each and every opportunity where by simply being a decent human being I draw the savagery of my sisters and brothers, and corporate and government entities, that they might visit it on my body for simply being decent. Gandhi's faith is the same as mine, 100% in the force of the truth revealed. Primarily a force on the nervous systems of onlookers , but even the force that can help cure perpetrators. There is no other revolutionary way to fight.

It's odd, for 10 years the words wage love have been tattooed on my cheeks. But only in the last day or so have I come to have that unfold more fully. We know that someone who wages violence, a good soldier, is nearly Unstoppable. If they're on an important Mission, they take a bullet to the leg, if their comrades are any danger, they will fight on. And if they take a second bullet, they will fight on until totally unable. This is what it means to wage war. Waging love it's exactly the same. I have just been massively Savaged by the state. Can I respond any less relentlessly than one Waging War? I wage loving. I am a loving revolutionary. I am a wager of loving. I cannot imagine that anything can stop me from doing that as long as I can take a breath.

Update. Traveling down to Eagle Butte Cheyenne River Pow Wow Arena. My vehicle is undriveable. An estimated $700 damage. It could be more expensive but I will not know until it is driveable. It is simply not possible that the damage was due to anything other than  malicious Savage  intent. Absolutely impossible. vehicle weighs 160 pounds. The trailer weighs 70 pounds.  Absolute  Savage  Power Over Law. It has been retrieved and is on the back of a flatbed with lots of other stuff. Possibly Parts can be purchased and sent to make it drivable and possibly welding can be done. In order to gain access to the vehicle to retrieve it it was necessary to pay $1,280 for the towing fee on the hundred and sixty pounds solar bicycle car that is 52 inches wide and 71 inches long. And it was necessary to pay $1,280 to receive the trailer which has a replacement value of $1,000. There was no other way to get the vehicle. There is no recourse. They can and will torture and crush you like a bug unless you remain compliant, sheep, cooperating with evil. Yes, of course I will make the choice that I made every single time. I will not live in fear. I will not be bullied. Crushed physically is up to them. I expect it will take a week or so to get the vehicle operational and then I expect to resume my trip across the country. The arraignment for my arrest which carries a maximum of one year in prison and $5,000 fine, the arraignment is March 22nd in Mandan. By Friday or Monday it's possible that a public defender will be assigned to me at which point I can find out if that arraignment can be handled in such a way that it does not require my physical presence. Based on the pattern with the 700 or so arrests that have taken place before mine it is unlikely that any court appearance will be until 8 months from now or so. Our cell phones for our misdemeanor charges are not being returned. Those are unlikely to be returned until the court case is settled. If you are awake and sane then you have one of two choices in realizing what is done to Citizens merely trying to protect basic human rights, your choice is between being terrified and outraged. But that's for the few that care to be awake.

Today some of our time was spent trying to tie up Loose Ends Here in Mandan. This includes circuitous circular round-robin visits to Sheriff's Office, state district attorney, Sheriff's Office, repeat, repeat, repeat. A blessing it was to run into Grandma Regina's son, Charles, a blessing it was too run into grandma Regina's son, Charles, because I was able to make clear to him that although being in prison is not something that I think I would enjoy that my number one priority is to use my body to support Regina's treaty stand as best as I am able if it is of great potential benefit. I was able to say that some people want to avoid prison, some want to fight the legal system and that neither of those categories apply to me. I know of no price I wouldn't pay if it could be a major help in the treaty rights fight. I was very glad because I think he understood that and I am hopeful of getting guidance in advice from he and his legal team and his moms legal team before the 22nd.

Standing Rock update: The Savior of standing rock, grandma Regina, said.......

Standing Rock update:  The Savior of standing rock, grandma Regina, said that we are not to take this next bullet. We are to go and continue the fight elsewhere. She says that no purpose will be served by getting arrested again and in fact it will decrease the clarity of our arrest 3 days ago in the treaty stand.  By the way, I, and most of those arrested with me, face $5,000 fine and a year and prison.

There is a likelihood less than 15% that the other camps will be raided Monday, & a 95% chance that they will be raided on Tuesday. The odds appear to be 80% that on Tuesday it is not the desire of the state forces to arrest people or bust heads. But they will clear the camp. Anyone there on Tuesday if they are seen to be clearly moving quickly out of the camp will not be arrested or harassed. Anyone that resists should expect the use the Force.

Three days ago we were lied to when we were told similar things, that they would not come in that day, and 15 minutes later they were arresting Regina. That could happen again here but I do not expect it.

Probably half of the black hoop camp evacuated today and the rest, most of the rest, expects to evacuate tomorrow, Monday. I cannot speak for sacred stone.

When I last wrote I expected to stay and get arrested, refusing to leave the bullying by the state and by the Cowardly Tribal Leaders, greedy for their casino dollars. But even before hearing from Grandma Regina today my plan changed.

Anyone that has followed me in 3 weeks knows that aside from using my criminal case to stand alongside grandma Regina in her treaty stand, the next greatest opportunity I see to help Humanity is to build the first of the series of Earth ships that use neither fossil fuels nor even the great energy required for solar voltiacs and wind in the traditional sense, but rather to use the stored cooling of the earth in the summertime to avoid huge energy cooling requirements, and to use the huge stored summer earth heat for winter heating. And many other similar non fossil fuel, none capitalist energy sources. We need to starve the Beast or it will continue and finally destroy us.

Well, it may be that the single most important thing that the 8 or nine months of standing Rock did was to bring together a dozen or so people with the skills, heart, commitment, intelligence, courage, tenacity, to do this.

We are at the casino tonight having moved out of the land that is under threat today. We're resting and gathering our thoughts. Tomorrow we go to Mandan where our vehicles if NOT been destroyed they are impounded, and if our cell phones are going to be returned that's where they are. So we'll be exploring that. Then we expect to go to some safe place for a week or so to chart our course from there, evaluating six or so potential pieces of land, beginning to explore who might want to support with funding, etcetera.
