Vet Says He and Fellow Veterans Here to Rally Behind Protesters

News
Thousands of veterans to take to protest grounds lending their support. Dozens of Veterans for Standing Rock groups have rallied on social media in the past few weeks. They all plan to join protesters at the camp in the next few days.
 
Organizers say upwards of 12-thousand wanted to come out to what some call the front lines near Cannonball. 
 
A more realistic number – 4,000 – are expected to show up come Sunday. One man says they have specific instructions when they arrive. 
 
“Tomorrow the veterans will muster up at the main camp. We will fall in behind native veterans and request permission to enter the site from the elders and from the native veterans and then we will march into the camp to our various assignments. That will include joining the water defenders at the line. We’re here to serve. We’ll serve in any way we can,” Chris Shaw, Vancouver, Canada.
 
Law enforcement say they will not be removing protesters from the camp. Friday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch advised peaceful contact on both sides until a decision about the last leg of pipeline is made.
