Howard Ehrman, MD, MPH is coordinating a medical response to the eviction notice served last week to the Oceti Sakowin Camp at Standing Rock, asking for physicians and other medical professionals to volunteer.
Wendy Ring, member of Physicians for Social Responsibility, forwarded the following:
The Army Corps of Engineers has issued an eviction notice to the Oceti Sakowin Camp at Standing Rock along with a statement that they take no responsibility for the safety of anyone who remains.
The eviction date is Dec. 5.
Thousands of U.S. military veterans committed to arrive on Dec. 3 to defend the water protectors before the eviction notice was given. I do not know what the water protectors or the veterans plan to do but there appears to be a potential for many injuries.
If any of you are able to come, now would be the time.
