    “We came. We fought you. We took your land. We beg for your forgiveness.”

    Over the last few months, as the news of the Standing Rock protests have spread across the globe, people have realised that the protest was never just about a pipeline, it was always about so, so much more.

    Veterans to Stand in Solidarity with the Sioux at Standing Rock

    They are used to standing shoulder to shoulder in the face of adversity fighting for their country. But next weekend, hundreds of veterans will come together again, potentially for one last time. Their mission this time is not to fight for their Government. But against it.
