Almost a week has passed since the last round of protesters at Standing Rock were pushed out or arrested.

The Guardian reports: “Amid the anger and sadness over the eviction of the camp, however, water protectors expressed determination to keep fighting for indigenous and environmental rights.

“‘The closing of the camp is not the end of a movement or fight; it is a new beginning,’ said Tom Goldtooth, executive director of the Indigenous Environmental Network, in a statement. ‘They cannot extinguish the fire that Standing Rock started. It burns within each of us.’”

In downtown Los Angeles, across from the Greyhound Station, a mural and a tent express solidarity.
