Rising Up With Sonali

More Activists Join Oceti Sakowin in North Dakota To Fight Pipeline; Who Won the Iceland’s Election? All Governments Lie.

Native Americans march to a burial ground sacred site that was disturbed by bulldozers building the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), near the encampment where hundreds of people have gathered to join the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe's protest of the oil pipeline that is slated to cross the Missouri River nearby, September 4, 2016 near Cannon Ball, North Dakota. Protestors were attacked by dogs and sprayed with an eye and respiratory irritant yesterday when they arrived at the site to protest after learning of the bulldozing work. / AFP / Robyn BECK        (Photo credit should read ROBYN BECK/AFP/Getty Images)

As police actions at the Dakota Access protests escalate, more and more activists from around the US are joining the water protectors. On today’s show we’ll go to North Dakota once more to turn to Rose Aguilar, a journalist who has been covering the developing story. And, Iceland’s election results are in. While many in the US left are celebrating wins by the anti-establishment Pirate Party, the outcome is more complicated. Our guest expert Vidar Thorsteinsson will explain. And, filmmaker Fred Peabody joins us to discuss his new documentary, All Governments Lie: Truth, Deception, and the Spirit of I.F. Stone.
