2016 Advent Calendar --- day 3

The protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline by many Native American tribes and groups, including the Standing Rock Sioux Nation, and their allies, and the harsh response from authorities is one of the saddest things to happen this year.  But hearing of a group of U.S. military veterans converging on the protest site, to show solidarity with, and help protect, those water protectors, as the protesters prefer to be described, just filled me with hope.  So, I'll share that story with you, here.
