Dear Friends

Despite being held hostage by protesters amid threats of violence – we didn’t let their threats and intimidation stop us from practicing real journalism and finding out the truth about the Dakota Access Pipeline.
You can watch our interview with a local farmer here. His neighbors have lost scores of cattle and horses and they have reported incidents of trespassing and intimidation. Those protesting the development of the pipeline claim to be peaceful but up close it is clear they are the very opposite when challenged by real journalism.
Regarding the incident where Magdalena and I were attacked by protestors, assaulted and then held hostage in our car for over half an hour – the local police have issued arrest warrants for two suspects and the photographs of others they want to interview.
We will continue to cover the story despite the intimidation. The truth is too important to do otherwise.
Thank you for your support,
