Remember when Warren stood up to fossil fuel and government over reach going on record fighting for indigenous rights, clean water and Standing Rock?

Ya. Me either.

What I do remember is when she exploited Standing Rock though. counterpunch.org/2016/12/06/eli…
Warren sure likes to exploit the indigenous when she can use it to get a leg up for her expediency.

Just the facts.

1/ I have a degree in Astrophysics and two degrees in physics. I am Indigenous and Chicana. As an indigenous scientist absolutely in love with space and our ways of studying it, it has been very difficult watching what is happening to #MaunaKea and #TMTShutdown #ProtectMaunaKea
2/ Indigenous scientists walk in many worlds and understand the challenges of bringing our culture with us into colonial structured spaces. Our people have always been scientists. Our people have always studied the stars. This is not science vs culture. #ProtectMaunaKea
3/ our sacred spaces should hold just as much value as the Vatican or the Western Wall. It would never even be a question to think of desecrating that space in the pursuit of science and yet Hawaiian elders are forced to put their bodies in the path of trucks to #ProtectMaunaKea

@POTUS
Before we begin on yesterday’s event I must touch on my previous thread being deleted once again. This is not the first nor probably the last time this will occur by @Twitter however this needs to stop. Cencerorship is unacceptable on this or any other platform.

@DevinNunes
I’ve been here for 10 years and I’ve seen the censorship the whole time. Remember #ArabSpring #StandingRock #OccupyWallSt? Now you can add #QAnon & Conservatives to the growing list. Time for @POTUS and others like @DevinNunes to do something about this.

#VoterSuppression
Say you live on #StandingRock on the ND side. You have kids, a job, you're a busy, functional, modern day Native American — but where you live doesn't have a street address, & you've never needed one as you have PO box.

Now, North Dakota says you can't vote.
But surely, you think, there's a way around it, right? There is. You first have to call your district's coordinator (but remember, not all districts are the same). You may have to call around. You finally get ahold of someone. You describe, in detail, where your house is.
The coordinator assigns you an address that you can use on your voter registration. But they need to give you a confirmation letter for the address (we don't know if they mail it or give it to you right away, that is unclear). You then can use the address on your documents.
