Join The Intercept and Normal Life Pictures for a conversation about the victories and challenges of Standing Rock — and what we can take with us as we navigate an era marked by corporate giveaways, emboldened law enforcement, and the increasing criminalization of dissent.
The Intercept’s Jeremy Scahill will moderate a panel discussion featuring Lakota historian Nick Estes; NoDAPL organizer and tribal attorney Tara Houska; and Center for Constitutional Rights attorney Pamela Spees. Intercept reporters Alleen Brown and Alice Speri will discuss their “Oil and Water” series, which exposed how law enforcement worked with mercenary forces hired by the company behind the Dakota Access pipeline to surveil and suppress the water protector movement. And filmmaker Eli Cane will show excerpts from his award-winning PBS documentary “On a Knife Edge,” a look at the contemporary American Indian Movement.
Doors open at 7 p.m.
Event starts at 8 p.m.
