An anti-fracking protest by hundreds of Indigenous turned violent on Thursday when police came to break up the action.

“I’m trying to learn how to live, to have the speaking-to extend beyond the moment’s word, to act so as to change the unjust circumstances that keep us from being able to speak to each other; I’m trying to get a little closer to the longed-for but unrealized world, where we each are able to live, but not by trying to make someone less than us, not by someone else’s blood or pain. Yes, that’s what I’m trying to do with my living now.” — Minnie Bruce Pratt, “Identity: Skin Blood Heart"
