Host David Bernstein continues a week of broadcasts from Standing Rock. We'll cover a tense protest that took place in front of the Federal Building in Downtown Bismark, as police did everything in their power to prevent it from taking place, including blocking off the main exits on the freeway that lead to the capital.  Also an indigenous Canadian activist tells about the struggle to hold the new Canadian prime minister accountable to keep his promise to protect indigenous lands from future oil spills: and Palestinian human rights lawyer Noura Erakat on how Israel expanded it's use of force and diminished Palestinian resistance.
