How To Stop An Oil And Gas Pipeline: The Unist’ot’en Camp Resistance

Our people have had enough. We’re not going to just stand here and take the bullying and take it without a fight. We had enough of these spoiled brats stealing off our lands and not accepting no for an answer. We’re going to be the stern parent and say “no, you are not coming in.”
Freda Huson, Unist’ot’en spokesperson

Grayson: They’re complaining about the fact that Wall Street wrecked the economy three years ago, and nobody has been held responsible for that. Not a single person has been indicted or convicted for destroying twenty percent — twenty percent! — of our national net worth, accumulated over the course of two centuries. They’re upset about the fact that Wall Street has iron control over the economic policies of this country, and that one party is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Wall Street and the other party caters to them as well. That’s the real truth of the matter, as you’ve said before, [Bill].

P.J. O’Rourke, conservative propagandist: Get the man a bongo drum. They’ve found their spokesman. Take your shoes off, get a bongo drum, forget to go to the bathroom, and it’s yours.

Grayson: Listen, if I am a spokesman for all of the people who think that we shouldn’t have 24 million people in this country who can’t find a full-time job, that we should not have 50 million people who can’t see a doctor when they are sick, that we shouldn’t have 47 million people in this country who need the Government’s help to feed themselves, and that we shouldn’t have 15 million families who owe more on their mortgages than the value of their homes – OK, I’ll be that spokesman.
