11/20/2016: Call for immediate cessation of use of water cannons in subfreezing temperatures

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

The physicians and tribal healers with the Standing Rock Medic and Healer Council call for the immediate cessation of use of water cannons on people who are outdoors in 28F ambient weather with no means of active rewarming in these conditions. As medical professionals, we are concerned for the real risk of loss of life due to severe hypothermia under these conditions.

We call on the Morton County Sheriff’s office to immediately stop the potentially lethal use of these confrontational methods against people peacefully assembled.

We request media support, medical support and observers to the area immediately.
