Actress shaylene Woodley, the star of “Divergent,” “Insurgent” and other movies, which now devotes all his time to nature conservation, particularly the protection of the reservation of the Sioux Standing Rock, where they want to destroy hectares of pine forest to build a pipeline.
25-year-old actress spent thanksgiving with hundreds of other activists. On the eve of thanksgiving shaylin cried, criticizing American holiday.
“I know that today is the day that many call thanksgiving, and it is the day when children are in elementary school and America learn about the stories of our native brothers and sisters. As a kid we made paper turkeys, played with the pilgrims, but none of our children do not know the truth, do not know what actually happened to the indigenous people, when Westerners decided to colonize this country. And this is still happening with the indigenous population.
The damn tubing had to be in Bismarck, North Dakota, but “white American,” decided to remove him. They endanger the lives of local people, they can deprive him of his normal nature, water, life. We are still here, and this thanksgiving is based on lies and violence, we will not leave. Against us are cops, snipers with a loaded weapon, and quite frankly, I’m sick of this. Where are you? Why don’t you all stand up together and say something?
I just urge everyone to think carefully about what this holiday means and why it still exists and that it means” angry shaylene and breaks into tears.
I must say that the company Woodley in the protection of the reservation are Jane Fonda and Nikki reed. Shaylin also shared a video in which public activists, authorities dispersed in cold water, rubber bullets and gas.
