  • WES CLARK JR: Organizing pipeline protest
A familiar name has popped up in the ongoing protest to the Dakota Access Pipeline — Wes Clark JUNIOR.

The son of the retired general and Little Rock native, is also an Army veteran. A screenwriter and political commentator based in California, Clark is organizing a three-day demonstration by military veterans at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, epicenter of the struggle.

According to an “operations order” for the planned engagement, posted to social media in mid-November, “First Americans have served in the Unites States Military, defending the soil of our homelands, at a greater percentage than any other group of Americans. There is no other people more deserving of veteran support.”
He's started a GoFundMe page to defray expenses for veterans who join in the event.

Tear gas, freezing streams of water and rubber bullets were used to disperse protestors Sunday.
