Awaken The Warrior Inside You.
The Brian Travis Band, like ther rest of the nation, are well aware of the conflict between the Standing Rock Sioux and other warriors who are protesting the Dakota Pipeline.
Law enforcement are currently assaulting the tribes who are trying to protect our water by spraying them with high pressure water hoses (oh the irony!)
and shooting rubber bullets at protestors. Defeating the Dakota pipeline is a fight worth fighting. If you cannot be there, donate what you can to those who are there. Also,
if you bank at Wells Fargo (a bank known to be funding the Dakota Pipeline construction) pull your money out and put it in a credit union. Action is required now. Awaken the warrior inside of you.
If you are equally outraged, here are some phone numbers. We urge you to call immediately and often!
